So no game updates, no DLC, no way to backup your save data. Kind of defeats the purpose don't you think?
Are you new here? You can backup DLC and use it on any unlicensed PSVITA. I don't even know what you mean about backing up savedata, there's a homebrew for that. You can also download any update that predates 3.60. Most of the best games do. Also it's only a matter of time before the 3.60 barrier is breached. It was the same concept with the PS3.
You're assuming that everyone wants install Vita games. So people simply want to use their physical Vita cards, but with the benefit of homebrews. If you want to use updates and DLC that's not from PSN, you need to install your games, you can't use the original cards.
