Content sharing on sub-accounts.

5 replies 503 views Edited Nov 10, 2012
When I purchase a game for the vita. It says shareable on 2 different vitas associated on the same account. Does this mean I can put my purchased select content on my sons vita as well since he is on my sub account? Just curious.

No.  Sub-accounts have no more ability to share content than completely unrelated accounts do.  Your sub-accounts have no access to the content that your account  purchases, and your account has no access to the content that your sub-accounts purchase.

How's that working for Sony and the Vita's sales?  They're pulling an Xbox One on the excuse that it's a handheld.  In other words, if Microsoft had a handheld system, then at E3 Sony might have been all like :But on the Vita you can share games.

The PSP had the same restriction, and it sold more than 50 million units worldwide; which is almost as many as the XBox 360.  I don't think that it has anything to do with the sales of the Vita, good or bad.

The PSP also put  MOST and I do mean MOST of their games on UMD as opposed to the digital download games.
