More specifically, Settings app>Format>Restore PS Vita System NOTE: This is different from the Restore option found in Content Manager, as CM only restores the contents of a previously backed up Memory Card, and not the System Settings.

guys above forgot a big point, the vita needs to be deactivated first with the old account. then format it with the way mentioned above. if its new why does it have a psn account.

It's probably "new" to him. Not the actual definition of new.

No, it doesn't have to be deactivated. It's up to the previous owner to do this, not the current owner. You can still activate the same Vita on a different account.

Then you're going to be missing out on a lot of cross-platform features...

Then restore your Vita to factory settings and put in your new account! Back up your memory card if you have to. It's more important for your Vita to have your old account than your PSP, since the Vita has some Cross-Buy games that work on both PS3 and Vita.
