While I understand your frustration, I'd still tell you that now's a great time to be a Vita owner. I've had mine for just over nine months and can say that's become my go-to console. I don't want to defend Sony's lack of support for activating the codes properly, but you'll be missing out on a lot of great titles if you end up changing your mind with the Vita. Have you had a chance to check out any other titles yet?
Having the same issue. I've tried downloading it through my PS3 and Vita and the code doesn't work. I was on the phone with Sony earlier today and the code is still labelled as unused. Their advice was to keep trying and it could take a couple days for the codes to actually take effect.
Frustrating for sure, but I'll keep trying.
Interesting. The rep I spoke with did mention next Tuesday, which is the 27th. The suggestion of it being at any time and to keep trying was most likely lip-service... Ah well, at least there's some great demos to play in the meantime!
Add me to the long list of non functional code holders... I just picked this thing up after selling my first vita, now I am starting to regret the re-purchasing already...geez...
