I have more than one PS3 and also have my PSN account on my all of my brothers PS3's but recently had my 60gb console repaired and when I got it back and reinstalled the hdd it had to be reformatted and I lost everything. I can no longer download any of my games onto it as, although it is the same console I had sent back, I am guessing the motherboard has been replaced and it is now counted as a new system and needs to be activated so I have two questions...
1. Is it possible for the support staff to deactivate my account on just the broken/dead system or can they only deactivate all systems at once?
2. If all systems have to be deactivated, can I just leave the games I have downloaded/purchased on the systems and reactivate each one or will all games etc have to be deleted and downloaded again?

sorry, I wasn't clear enough...my account was already activated on 5 consoles, one of them died and when I got it back from repair it has had the motherboard replaced or something (I dont know exactly, but they did send back MY console, not a refurb) anyway, the system now says it needs to be activated so I am hoping that I can get the first system deactivated (which would be the repaired system with it's original guts) and not have to get all of them deactivated...

sorry, ignore my last post, I'm tired...
If I can leave the games and just reactivate the consoles without needing to download everything on them all again, then it really doesnt matter if I have to get all systems deactivated...the videos are not a concern, I havent purchased any.

if you go to the actual sony entertainment website and to account u can remotely deactivate all ps3 systems then re activate on the ones u want. u can only do this once every 6 months though
