Help preparing Vita for sale

Post by xtoad » Fri Jun 21, 2019 4:22 pm

Hi everyone,

I was wondering what I needed to do on the software side in preparing to sell my Vita?

I assume it's a combination of deactivating, logging out of PSNid stuff and wiping...but what is the best/proper way to go about it?

Yeah you just have to deactivate your PSN accounts (though you can do that from the SEN site on a PC), format your memory card if you're selling one with it (and in the case of a Slim Vita, the internal storage; you have to remove the memory card to access it), and it would be best to restore it to factory default, and just turn it off on the setup screen after restoring (the screen you see when you first buy a Vita). I think while factory resetting you also have the option to format your memory card at once. Everything should go fine.
