Vita TV questions

1) Heard it's actually NOT Region Free anymore. Is this true?

2) Heard it doesn't work on American TVs. Is this true?

3) Heard it requires an adapter to plug into an outlet for power. Is this true?

4) Heard only Japanese accounts work with it. Is this true? And if so, can you play without using an account? If so, any drawbacks to that?

1 False.. though some other regions cart games may not work because they haven't been put on the compatibility
2 Really false, and patently ridiculous.
3 It depends on what country you are in. Not all plugs are shaped the same and draw the same power, and the Vita TV was made for Japan, so probably true.
4 Also true. For now. Yes you can play with the generic temporary account, but if you do you can't connect to the PSN store, or get updates for games, or use saves created with a PSN account. However, the flip side of that is that once they set up the PSN store in other regions for Vita TV, if you change the temporary account to your regular PSN account, all your saves are then tied to that account, and all trophies become tied to that account as well.

Sounds good enough for me, then. I wanted to import it to play Persona 4 Golden on my TV and even record it for youtube, but I was afraid that'd be impossible.

Persona 4 is one of the games that requires a patch, for both the Japanese and US versions.

A better route might be to make a JPN account, update any patches, then restore to factory and see if you can still play (if the patch has remained on the system despite formatting).

It's in Japanese. Sorry, I am partially literate. Google translate can probably help you out, though.
