Online deactivation is now available.

46 Replies 92,468 Views Created 19-11-2011

You can now deactivate any old/dead PS3 systems online :smileyhappy:

 

You cannot select individual systems to deactivate, it's all or nothing, this can only be done once every 6 months (you can still deactivate/activate as often as required via the console).

 

(1) Log into http://www.qriocity.com/au/en/ with your PSN log in details
(2) Account
(3) Media and Devices
(4) Click the game option, and then Deactivate All.

Please use plain text.

Awesome, I contacted sony support not long ago to get my activations reset and they could only deactivate 2 of the 5 consoles. All done now, now i can activate my new one :smileywink:

Re: Online deactivation is now available.

this is probably due to the reduction of activations from 5 to 2.

Re: Online deactivation is now available.

Or try here:

 

https://account.sonyentertainmentnetwork.com/login.action

 

from here you can view PS3 details for specific consoles. While viewing the details, it'll give you a button to de-activate that particular console, as shown:

The theory behind the deactivation is that you deactivate all of them and then only reactivate the ones you want.

 

As of November 18, 2011, the number of systems you can activate are:

  • For Game Content - Two (2) PS3 and/or PSP systems.
  • For Video Content - One (1) PS3 and up to Three (3) PSP systems.

Re: Online deactivation is now available.

That deactivate device button only provides instructions as to how to do it on a console in your possession, if you've got a dead one it can only be done via the method in first post. Assuming that the button has not changed since I last looked at it anyway.

Ah, I see now... you can't actually deactivate them individually via the web interface anyway... no matter.. I can't see it being an issue for me unless I get a Vita further down the track and have to remove my current PSP...
