    How to get Trophies from Used Games on the Vita

    Pocket Gamer: How to get Trophies in used Vita games

    We've seen Sony's own tips and tricks for the Vita, but as the device ages (six days old already!) more and more will appear, as Pocket Gamer shows with its tutorial that explains how to renew trophy-earning functionality in used Vita games.

    Upon booting up a pre-owned Vita title, players will get a screen that reads, "You cannot earn trophies in this application. Only the first player to use an application can earn trophies. To earn trophies, you must link the Sony Entertainment Network account of the first player to use this application with the PS Vita system." Pocket Gamer says the following steps will render that warning useless:1.Go to the main menu and hold down the screen for two seconds, until little bubbles appear on the upper-right side of each game's icon. Hit the bubble you want and click "Delete."

    2.A screen reading "All data related to this application will be deleted" will pop up. Hit "OK."

    3.Load the game and you should be good to go.
    This process won't delete the previous player's trophies, Pocket Gamer adds.

    Hmm, interesting

    I let my brother play my copy of Rayman Origins first as he only has VT4 at the moment. If he could keep his data when he's done with it while I can still obtain trophies on my Vita - that would be pretty neat

    Edit:


    Looks like it's extremely easy anyway and designed that way to stop people from sharing trophies via saves

    This is a bit annoying, but not a huge thing like not being able to get them at all, and honestly I was expecting THAT (because killing resales is huge in the industry now...)

    Never knew that one day gaming would be such a $#@!in' hassle. But I'm glad people have found an easy work-around.

    I'm confused.

    I thought the games don't save to the game cartridge?
