I have no problem with this as long as the site to de-activate ps3 is up and running before the changes come in to effect and obviously works.

Good then the gameshare sites will probably die. And good to see that you de-activate it using the internet.

It's fair enough but what if you have two PS3's die, you lose what you paid for? This is why I hate digital downloads.

No, you just deactivate those two consoles via the online tool and you are free to download/play your content again.

 

What it means is you can only have it activated on two consoles at any one time.

I'll put money on the fact that you'll need the serial number of the PS3 to be deactivated. I just can't see Sony allowing us to deactivate devices easily. ;)

The thing is, that "Sony Computer Entertainment plans to provide", which means it might take with Sony's time scale even a year or five years that this website system comes available. 

People have been demanding sub account upgrade for master account for adult users uhmm....wait....over four years, and still nothing have been done about it.

But for the main part, I think this limit change is a good thing, but it shouldn't exist before the systems can also be deactivated from the website.

If they have any sense they will allow you to just log in using your PSN name/password and be able to just deactivate it like that. That should be secure enough.

Perhaps one of the mods could answer this. I have 3 PS3's and a PSP. I have 2 boys with Autism who use 2 of the PS3's and I use the other although we do tend to move around as only one of the consoles is connected to the LCD. I am the master account on all 3 systems and all content the boys purchase is bought through my master account. After this change will I have to decide which child I like best as one of the systems content will no longer work?

I would appreciate an answer from someone as all my consoles where set up this way following advice from SCEE when I initially bought the 2nd console and was unsure how to purchase content for my sons.

If it is the case can I have a refund for all the content purchased for the child that will lose out. Oh and did I mention my youngest's PSP?

lol whether it works or not (theres bound to be confusion and/or errors and/or small print in there somewhere x)), lots of people have been asking for something like this. its sounds like a really useful addition, hopefully it works out well.

 

as for the 2 account activation thingy, cutting down on them sounds like a cool idea. at least this way we can all keep a better eye on which ones are activated and maybe its less likely users will get in a pickle with the whole thing too.

 

not sure if many people rely on 5 consoles activated at once? must be a small number of folks. but more than one per account is probably essential.

you can deactive all your devices by following these instuctions (including those with YLOD)

 

Note its once per 6 months

 

 

then you can reactivate the ones you actually want
