Update: According to TheSixthAxis.com, SCEE's Community Team Leader MusterBuster confirmed this is a typo, to quote: "This is a typo - the number of activated consoles is STILL 5. You should receive an updated email within the next few days."
Several months ago Sony sent out a warning to those involved in PSN game sharing, and recently the European PlayStation Network Terms of Service (linked above) has been updated to reflect this.
Although the US Terms of Service still state that "You can download the title to up to 5 different PLAYSTATION 3 systems" the EU counterpart now states only three, to quote:
- There are two sets of usage schemes for content, corresponding to two categories of in-game items and other content that you purchase.
- The first category, called Network Content, can only be accessed by one activated PlayStation 3 system per day and only by the account through which the Network Content was purchased. Network Content cannot be used on two different PlayStation 3 systems within a twenty-four (24) hour period.
- The second category, called Local Content, once installed on a PlayStation 3 system by the account that purchased it, can be accessed by other accounts on that same PlayStation 3 system.
