It might interfere with Warranty Claims, now that there is no identification on the Vita. The Serial Number is compared with a database on which systems are insured/within warranty or not.

Your Vita now has no ID, and I'm fairly certain Sony won't service it.

Stickers are stickers, I really don't see how yours just took off. Unless you picked at it or someone else was.

 

I mean if your sticker just fell off or whatever could you not just simply stick it back on?

 

I don't see the problem here, unless someone forcefully tried peeling it off then realized whoops maybe I should not have done that, you just bought a Vita that was missing a barcode or that person who owned it before tried peeling it off.

 

Other than that I seriously have no idea how it just took off on it's own. I have horribly sweaty hands also and my sticker hasn't budged a bit.

I didn't pick at them at all.I thought it was printed on the plate.

 

My brother knows I'm overprotective with this stuff so he takes care of it better than me

 

Sadly it won't stick back.Once it was peeled off it didn't stick back.My hands are also horribly sweaty but I never but my hands on the bottom of my Vita when my hands are sweating

 

And I also got it on the released date when it came out (February 22,2012) because it was one day before my birthday  and I begged for it.

But there is no way to match the Vita to the number on the box now. Sony can't verify squat without the number on the Vita.
