How do I delete PSN account on my PS Vita?

12 Replies 37,773 Views Created 15-06-2012

So I've decided to sell. I don't use it, and if there's any games out I decide I want, I'll just buy another one, but at the moment, I've used it about 8 times since I've had it. It's money that I could spend on other things I want.

 

I don't know how to delete my account information off of the system. No matter how many times I "Restore Settings" or "Restore the PS Vita System" my PSN name still seems to be there! :Argh:

I think you will have to run a format but i'm not fully sure if that will remove your account it should do though.

 

Whilst vita is off.

Press and hold in order & keep held R button + Power + PS button.
This will take you to a sub menu where you can select format.

Haha I was searching for this for hours, finally found this answer on YouTube, and then decided to come back here to comment that I'd finally got it xD Thanks <3
Looks like it's deleted anyway because it's like it's new with the old "Do you have a SEN account?" :smileyhappy:
