Im inclined to agree. I do love my PS3's the games, all that stuff.
I just think it's a shame Sony made it.
The PS1 and PS2 were so good, the PS3 is potentially amazing but with the advent of DLC, patches to fix gamebreaking bugs and free online, it requires a stellar customer service.
Half the time, the complete lack of understanding when it comes to the customers is appaling
(Referring to via e-mail/phone, not had many encounters with mods/officials from the forums but they seem like stand up, gameplaying guys)
Right, some people will have an amazing experience with them, mines been mixed, and then some will have a lot of grief. Honestly though, i dont think people who get a good time from them come on here and post about it as much as people who get a crap ride do.

So basically anything i download from today is "tied" to the first two PS3's its downloaded to, unless i do the deactivation lark right?
And thanks for the swift answers guys, kinda wish Sony would you lot as opposed to whoever it is they've got working the phones these days!
Although i do agree, it's not random.
I just wish they'd be honest about it, we all know Gamesharing is a big problem, but if they'd just been honest and said "It's to end Gamesharing, help developers make more money to help us to put more quality games out, please help" Then i'd be all for it, i just dont appreciate the whole "well no-one is really using this feature so were changing it"
If noone was using it, noone would know, then noone would care, and noone would miss it. But why take it away? Its like im not CURRENTLY using my CD's, i'd like the option to, so im not going to let people remove them. (Apologies, metaphors aint my forte)
Yes, everything previous to the change remains the same as it was before

Just to bend your ears one more time, regarding the 2 ps3's again.
If i buy something now, and download it to the 2 ps3's, if i then manually deactivate that PS3, and reactive the third one, will the dlc i just bought work on that one now?
Ive nearly got my head around this

You can only deactivate once every six months though?
You can only deactivate all machines via the Qriocity website once every six months.
If you have access to the machines, you can deactivate/reactivate as often as you want.

As i understand it, it runs like this
Lets say i have 3 PS3's infront of me, they are numbered 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5
All 5 of them have InFamous - Festival of Blood on them.
This DLC game works fine no problems.
If i now go onto the PSN and buy a copy of Call of Duty - Black Ops, i am, as of the 18th November, entitled to use it on upto 2 activated consoles, in this case consoles number 1 and 2.
If i want to use it on number 3, 4 or 5, i have to deactivate number 1 or 2.
As i'm not gamesharing, (and nor should you be) this is possible, as noone is relying on it in the grand scheme of things.
I choose which one i want to deactivate go onto the console and MANUALLY deactivate it, not via Qriocity/SOE site.
Whilst i could download Black Ops to all 5 Units, i am unable to run it on more than 2, but seeing as i have deactivated one account, i now have a "free" account to reactivate on another unit in another location.
Should i get massively confused, ONCE per six months, i am permitted to deactivate ALL of my consoles through the Qriocity/SOE website, PSP/PS3, and reactivate them manually on the respective consoles themselves. So whilst everyone is now aware that Pre-18thNov DLC is available on 5 PS3's and upto 5 PSP's, anything bought after is only allowed on 2 PS3's and/or (not sure) 2 PSP's
I am pretty sure this is how it works, though i have to admit im confused. If i have to deactivate an account to use some DLC limited to 2 units, it will in theory also deactivate the DLC that should be available on upto 5 units?
