My PS3's was stolen and both was activate. Now I've replaced them it's telling me i need to deactivate the other 2 first.
I live in sunny South Africa.
Solved! Go to Solution.
After you sign in you need to click;
''Account'' > ''Media and Devices'' > ''Game'' then deactive all the consolse you see. You should now be able to activate the one you wish to use from the console itself
Topic on the subject here if you get stuck.
there's a problem with that.
this is the message i'm getting from the site. "The family of Sony Entertainment Network services is not available in your country/region."
so what now???
I have just used this service since I have 2 PS3s, 2 PSPs and have had a total of 7 PS3s since its launch.
It is NOT possible to individually deactivate PS3s for GAME content. However, you CAN deactivate ALL of them with once simple click. The warning states that this can only be done once per 6 month period.
I had 5 activations live, and only 2 in use on the network..... the missing 3 were clearly from dead PS3s that Sony never deactivated although I had requested it, during the 1:1 swap process.
Happy days, I now have the ability to use my spare activations should one of my current PS3s explode.
I understand the service is great but it seems it's not available in South Africa till further notice.(I can't login)
and the importer can't help me aswell.
I've E-Mailed the Guys in Sony EU for help I was just hoping there's another way to solve this problem.
I have tried to deactivate the other 4 systems but it keeps telling me that this process can only be done through the PS3 system.
thank you so much ... I have had to use another account to by all my psn games another account for years ....
thx i had 5 ps3 activated and had none of them any more now i can buy stuff again
