PS Vita setup loop issue

Hi guys, 

 

We have been made aware that there is a process loop which you may get caught in when attempting to link your Sony Entertainment Network account to their PS Vita during the initial device set-up.

 

When you first use your PS Vita you will be asked if you have a SEN Account and, if you do, if you would like to use it on your PS Vita.

 

If the you select Use, you will be informed that a system software update is required before the account can be linked to the device. After selecting Ok, you will be taken back to the screen asking if you wish to use your SEN account on your PS Vita. This loop will repeat if you continue to choose to use your SEN account.

In order to proceed, you must Do Not Use instead of Use. This will allow you to set up you system for trial use and complete the initial set-up.  You will then be able to view a short video before being promoted to update the system software and add your SEN account to your device.

 

Any questions please ask,

 

SFZ

Re: PS Vita setup loop issue

Is this "Do you have a SEN" the same as "Do you have a PSN" account???

It would be good if there was a PlayStation forums bubble on the PS Vita, so that people are more aware to it.
