User not showing as "Signed-In" to PS3 Users while using Vita

9 replies 1604 views Edited Feb 25, 2012

Both a friend and I have Vitas and when we are using them we do not show up as "Signed-In" on my girlfriend's friends list on her PS3. It says we are logged off but it has no "last login". Has anyone else had this problem or know how to fix it?

I think that's actually how it is right now.  I've heard from multiple sources that Vita users don't show up on a PS3 user's friends list when logged in.  I wouldn't be surprised if they added that in an update, however.

This is just how the vita is. Ps3 users cant view which of their vita friends are online. I wish in the future they release a firmware update that allows this to happen.

That's what I thought but I wasn't sure, I'm also having trouble getting the cross-play on Hustle Kings to work, I followed the steps on a youtube video and some other forums and it just won't work, I thought maybe it had something to do with the fact that the Vita users aren't showing up but I guess either I'm doing it wrong or it's a different problem. Thanks for the answer though!

The only way my friends see that im am on a Vita is that if my name shows up at the very bottom of their friends list (Offline), and it doesnt show when i last logged in.

You ever notice how you can't sign onto PSN using two PS3's??  I find it funny how you can sign on using your PS3 and Vita at the same time.. I kinda figured they'd lock it as far as only 1 account on line at once..

No, I never noticed. I only have 1 PS3, and rarely gameshare. But they probably did that to prevent gamesharing, because most people won't have 2 PS3s and use the same account, but lots of people would have a PS3 and a Vita.
