Now that we know more about it, I have a question about the Vita TV

#1Super SlashPosted 11/13/2013 9:07:10 PM
I know it's locked to Japan accounts for now. I don't have a Vita to begin with so pardon my ignorance, but I keep hearing that you need patches to play certain games. Does this mean you can't, for example, play a US copy of Persona 4 on a Japanese Vita TV? I'm also hearing you don't even need an account to play on it. Tbh I don't really care if I can't tie a US PSN account to a game, since I don't care much about trophies anyway. So could I get a Japanese Vita TV and play the US version of Persona 4 on it?

Maybe. In order to play the Japanese Persona 4 you have to download a patch so I'm thinking you'll have to have an account to download that patch if it'll even work with a NA copy of the game.

I'm surprised no one has tried it yet. Hasn't it been out for a few days?

I haven't got mine yet.

It's official release date is the 14th of this month, so it's been out for a few hours in Japan now.

I'm waiting for a buddy of mine to get off of work, hook it all up, and confirm or deny that US carts will work.

Cool. I'm really hoping they do, since I have no idea how long I'll have to wait for a US release.

So...whats the news?

US games won't load on it only Japan games work on a Japan account.
