Hey, so i was playing fine a week ago and then my old 60gb YLODed (RIP)

 

I got my new 250gb today, tried to sign in and got  on fine. when i tried to download my DLC and Games from the PSN download list it said i had 5 systems activated.

 

I gave my details to friends who wanted the games, but they have all since had their PS3s die, or have not got them anymore.

 

 

I am wondering if there is anyway of deactivating my Dead PS3, which is now in the shop, in it's box. I do not, however have any access to it, so i can't get the serial number, or other information on the PS3 itself

 

Thanks in Advance,

 

 

Ghillie

What you have done is commonly known as "gamesharing" - which is a big no-no :(

And what you have now run up against is the fact that ONLY Sony would be able to deactivate your accounts - but because you "game shared", they won't.

 

Unfortunately for you, this means kissing goodbye to your DLC.

And your save games.

And trophies.

Would this delete your download list and have to buy everything again though? Or would you just have to re install it?

It would just de-activate them on the PS3 they are not activated on so you can't use them on it.

over the years i have had numerous psp connected to my ps3 and i have either passed them on or sold them,so now when i go to download £197 worth of games that i have bought on another psp it states that i cannot as i need to de-activate the ones i already have which duh are gone so i have spoke to sony playstation to which they replied sony cannot be held responsible if you buy a psp on ebay and you have not deactivated the old ones all they could give me was an answer which is genius set up a new account so if i did and re downloaded them it would now cost me just short of £300 and where does that money go oh back to sony playstation,all i can say is at least ***** Turpin wore a mask when he robbed people

Im having exactly the same problem. I revert back to PS3 after 6 months of xbox360. I then buy the MW2 map packs and only after I have paid do they tell me my 5 activated systems are. 4 being my old dead ones (which I never knew about deactivating. Way to go SONY!) and one was when I played on a friends PS3 which ended up with the YLOD. SO no game sharing and also ripped off for £20 odd quid. Thanks SONY. I do believe this would be a great case for Trading Standards as the whole activation issue should be made very clear to start with and they should do a check before any money is charged when the system isnt activated.

 

Still have the Xbox360 so I guess my money is going to be better spent with Microsoft

Only Sony direct can help you here I'm afraid - you'll need to give them a ring and explain what has happened.

Although I'm not entirely sure that the download issue is directly connected to the account activation issue, as that probably wouldn't have let you sign in to buy the pack in the first place.
