Okay so I accidentally formatted my PS Vita and I am wondering, since I have no other choice, when I format my memory card, can I redownload all the games I bought and downloaded previously before I accidentally formatted the Vita at no extra cost? Or do I have to buy them all over again? I don't care if I lose the save data, I just want the games back at no cost.

Games I'm playing currently: Legend of Zelda: A Link Betweeen Worlds, Tearaway
Games I'm excited for: Super Mario 3D World, Super Smash Bros. 4, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Mario Kart 8

They should still be in your account history which means you can download them again for free. I believe, when I had to redownload a game, the button stated "Already Purchased" instead of "Purchase" but it's been a while.

Well this is a different account, so will this work on a different account? I need answers.

Now I'm skeptical.

I'm skeptical, too. How do you accidently format a Vita? Don't they give you a Warning prompt or three before it actually does it? If not, that's stupid design. If so, then it's a pretty stupid user. But you don't come off as that dumb, MultiMariosonic.

And do you have to format the Memory card when you format the Vita? Why would that be necessary? And why make a new PSN account?

I just feel like something else is going on here...

I think too much...

I don't own a vita but don't they put a warning sign before hand. You must be seriously clumsy.

I am currently playing Super metroid, Most wanted U, Runner 2, and Darksiders 2.

Because the Vita only allows for one system to be linked to one account, the way in changing accounts is to either buy two memory cards or reformat one.

OP, it seems that you just need to redownload everything.

It's all linked to your SEN account.
