Hello, is the following scenario possible?
Two seperate Vita devices running two copies of a game (for example's sake, let's say Ragnarok Odyssey) but they share a PSN ID (since one PSN ID can be on two Vita systems) .
Would those two devices be able to play online with each other, either infrastructure or ad-hoc?
As to why they share a PSN ID, they are brothers and usually play together on the PS3 and share trophies, game progress etc.
Thanks in advance for any help.
Yes, it's very different than how PS3's are setup. 2 PS3's can play online simultaneously. They just need to be logged in with a sub account user. The can be downloaded and installed by the primary account but still playable on a sub account. I do it all the time. This is not possible on the Vita, but yes it possible on the PS3.
Keep complaining to Sony if you want them to change how this is setup. I am sure many complaints will come about this holiday season as some parents plan to purchase Vita's for multiple children. I am one who purchased 2 vitas and furious over how digital distribution is controlled. I am not supporting physical media and Sony and developers will lose profit and Vita development could be in jeopardy.
Please complain to Sony Customer Service if you're not satisfied. If you do not complain, nothing will change. Customer service can't always change policy, but complaints from masses can possibly trigger evaluation if current policies need to be changed. You voice matters.
Don't listen to endustry94.
The vita's have one account per device, as sony considers it a personal device. It's similar to how Steam works on a computer or back in the day's Battle.net from blizzard. You can play offline, but online they have a key and you can't use the same key at the same time on two devices. Online play is a whole different story than offline play. This is why my kids vitas have different accounts and individually purchased games.

Really, you’re going to request to others to ignore me when I am only trying to assist by requesting that individuals submit their dissatisfaction to Sony Customer Service?
What should be ignored, the dissatisfaction of a customer or your inflammatory comments which have been removed?
