No trophies on used Vita games!?

14 replies 160 views Edited Feb 21, 2012

Seems the game is tied to the console and account to first use it

Yet if you read it, it says you can do a factory reset on the game card then you can get trophies.

I believe you have the option to have all save data be put on your memory card. You wouldn't lose any saves then if you let someone play one of your games on their Vita and they can still earn trophies.

EDIT: Yes, if you are buying it used, you can then reset the game to earn trophies.

i was just worried about sharing my game, let a friend borrow it to try it out or something, he either gets no trophies or I loose all the system data for my game. Still kinda sucks, I blame gamestop for this. . . . and the whole "online pass" thing

I still think you can just put your saves onto your memory card and then reset the game card. It would be really stupid if you couldn't keep all your game saves on your memory card.

What's the point of requiring a memory card if the game doesn't actually save your game onto it.

For digital game downloads

And I see this hurting the used game market, one part by ignorance on the gamers behalf. In general people are stupid, which is fine by me. I never buy used anyway I support the devs because I like original games, and all these used game sames only spark more of what sales instead of risk taking on something new. Because devs now a days can't afford a risk

on that note whos ready for Dynasty Warriors 38? Rock band 57 anyone? Call of Duty Future Warfare 12? you see where I'm going with this. Those games are good and all but am I really the only one tired of seeing the same games every year

I remember buying the Dynasty Warriors game that came out with the original PSP.

Never doing that again. God what a boring game.
