Japanese Vita TV owners with US/UK accounts thread! (+ Info)

Post by glas » Thu Oct 02, 2014 2:57 am

The idea of this topic is that Japanese Vita TV owners could discuss and chat upcoming news and findings about JP VTV usage with US/UK accounts.
After having for months a paperweight, i managed finally to use my Japanese Vita TV:

Image

What i did aka: US/UK account usage method:

- Login with JP PSN account
- Update firmware to 3.30 (This is a must, without 3.30 you can't login/register with a US/UK Account)
- format/reset VTV
- login with your western account
- JVTV still uses inverted Accept/Cancel buttons, but the games don't, everytime i load or save a game i cancel by mistake lol

How to download games with disabled PSN store:
- Go to https://store.sonyentertainmentnetwork.com
- Add games to download to download queue (pick "Both Vitas option)
- Turn off your VTV and turn it again
- VTV will login into PSN and start downloading games.

Actually this will only download on the first vita available only, so as you can have only one account online, if you have your normal vita idle it will only download on the VTV.

Here are the results so far:

- PSM&PSN Store not available on region/country (US/UK)
- You can set up all countries while registering your console though, so you can use any memory card (need confirmation, only done with a US one)
- "Topics" app remain japanese.
- You can still download games and data via Download Queue option at PSN Store website (https://store.sonyentertainmentnetwork.com)
- No in-game updates for any apps of the list below.
- You can't turn on your Vita TV from PS3 Controller (3 am, on bed, comfy, had to wake up, i hated it).
- To be added

Game compatibility list: (updated daily)

chihuahua wrote:i also tried the vita tv with US account, initial setup and account login spoofed will not let you login with anything but a Asian PSN account, to get to a UK or US account option you must update to firmware 3.30. meh
Q: Can you use a UK account?

Ahh, so the PSN store is still totally inaccessible?
I'm guessing you stuck in a memory card from a US-activated Vita that already had games installed on it?

can anyone explain how this is possible? I mean how can you play games from a memory card from a us-activated vita? doesn't vita tv ask for format?

if it is possible, should vita tv be not registered to a psn account to achieve this?

You will need a vita on the same firmware as the vita tv to send games to the memory card, a US account on the memory card and on your vita tv.

Problem is activating the vita tv for using the US memory card on 3.18, you can activate a ps vita on old firmware, just not sure you can do the same with the vita tv.
