    How To Get Trophies On Used PlayStation Vita Games

    Upon booting up a pre-owned Vita title, players will get a screen that reads, "You cannot earn trophies in this application. Only the first player to use an application can earn trophies. To earn trophies, you must link the Sony Entertainment Network account of the first player to use this application with the PS Vita system." Pocket Gamer says the following steps will render that warning useless:

    1. Go to the main menu and hold down the screen for two seconds, until little bubbles appear on the upper-right side of each game's icon. Hit the bubble you want and click "Delete."
    2. A screen reading "All data related to this application will be deleted" will pop up. Hit "OK."
    3. Load the game and you should be good to go.

    This process won't delete the previous player's trophies, Pocket Gamer adds.

    Wow. So you aren't "supposed" to be able to earn trophies on used games? That's dumb. Great find Davey!

    So that's how you delete save files from your Vita.

    That's really handy to know just from a view point of wanting to delete saved data from certain games. Thanks

    You know, sometimes I just want to play a game and not worry about having the trophies, but the perfectionist in me won't let that happen if trophies start popping up. This could be a good thing for me. Hahaha

    That's great news and should allow for more people to not hesitate when it comes to buying used games.

    if they release a patch making it to where you cannot earn trophies on pre-owned games (like they tried to do apparently, for reasons i cannot fathom.) then i am going to rage out on my shiny new vita. fmlfmlfml

    I get the feeling this has more to do with using another player's save data to earn trophies. Similar to how they patched it out of Uncharted 2, so you couldn't use the glitch from the first one to unlock a finished Crushing playthrough.
    I had this issue with content I'd personally bought after doing a factory restore to try and fix an install issue. I just used the Application Manager to delete the save data and started over. Luckily it was only Welcome Park, and once I'd deleted the save data, I just resynced and it pulled my trophies down since I'd unlocked them all already.
    It has nothing to do with trying to keep used games from giving out trophies, as far as I can tell.

    The official message is that you need to delete all related data first to earn trophies. They just don't explain exactly how it is done. If they would really like to stop that from the beginning they would not pop up such a message and rather say: "You never be able to earn trophies on used games!!! Buy a new one! NOW! XD
    I think a patch to prevent earning trophies from used games is not likely to come unless game companies require it to push their sales.

    So if Im 1/2 way through a game do I need to finish it before I let a friend borrow it? Or is the save file on my memory card and it will continue like a PS3 game would?

    It worked for me with Unchslarted. I switched from one account to another, so it's damn true.
