Game availability for buyer after selling Vita

[ Edited ]

I'm selling my Vita slim to buy a PS3, and I've downloaded a few games to the Vita from PSN (Borderlands 2 and Madden 13). My question is if I sell the vita will the buyer still be able to play those games after I deleted my account data from the Vita?

They shouldn't be able to. Especially if you have to go through so much just to switch regions. I don't know if it has activations or not, but if it's like ps3 make sure it's deactivated as a device.

The Vita is linked to one PSN account, so unless you keep your PSN account on it, the buyer will not have access to your games, and if you do, then they can`t put their own account on it without formatting it anyway. If you are selling your Vita, I would recommend you deactivate it if you havn`t already, also Format the system and restore it to factory settings.

I would highly recommend you to buy a PS4. if your an online player. but if your a story mode player and never had a PS3. well. you have a large library to mess around with before PS4 gets some good games.

As long as you reset the vita to factory settings and delete all the data on the memory card before you sell it you should be fine..
