Ugh people are always blowing things way out of whack, people need to actually gather all of the facts before blowing their lid and forming an misinformed opinion that will only lead to more non-reading people forming more misinformed opinions.
This only locks it to the account unless you format the memory card, so you can still sell an old memory card on eBay or CL or whatever.
Exact error message you'll receive:
The memory card inserted in your system is linked with the following Sony Entertainment Network account. [account name]
To use the memory card with your PS Vita system you must format the memory card.
If you format the memory card, all data on the memory card will be deleted.
Sure it may suck for the select few hardcore gamers that love overseas titles but apparently Sony doesn't think in the terms of that audience.
It all boils down to licensing per region, publishers etc etc and $$$$.
Do I think Sony will dig their grave open further? Who cares, either enjoy what's around or find something else.
