PlayStation Vita will support multiple PSN accounts, Sony has said.

Earlier in the week it was claimed that the forthcoming handheld device will support just one account, which led to a bit of anger and confusion amongst gamers. However, Sony associate brand marketing manager, Crystal MacKenzie, has told Wired that isn’t the case – though there is a small catch.

“Your PSN ID is bonded to your memory card and your memory card is bonded to your Vita,” she said. “So if you wanted to change different PSN users but use the same memory card, you would need to go factory reset.”

So, if users wish to link up more than one PSN account to Vita, they would have to have multiple and swap memory cards.

“You can also use them both on the same PSN account as well,” added MacKenzie.

So there you have it. Vita launches next month in Japan, and hits North America and Europe on February 22, 2012.
