Sony Computer Entertainment plans to provide a new PlayStation Network account management Web site where users will be able to deactivate particular devices attached to their PlayStation Network account via their PC.
Just make sure that on November 17th, anyone you Gameshared with previously, you download anything new that they have gotten, otherwise you probably won't be able to [Unless it doesn't force you to remove previous activations].
It would be much more reasonable if Sony just applied this to new activations (so lets say I only have 1 activation on my account currently, then after the 18th, I'd only be able to have 1 more; or if I only have 1 activation currently, I can get 4 more right now, and those don't expire].
Thanks a lot $ony, convincing me that Jailbraking is the future for PS3 I own 3 consoles and have always purchased the map packs once and downloaded them onto my consoles, then when my mates come over we can all play together in my games room but I'm certainly not paying £35.00+ for each COD Map Pack plus the (£120.00 I already paid for the game, 3 copy's of COD 4, 5, 6, 7 and soon to be MW3...
Fingers Crossed, Sony DON'T MAKE THIS MOVE... Otherwise prepare to loose $$$ NOT ACTUALLY GAIN ANYTHING FROM ME!
This is just an attempt to get people purchasing more stuff off the PSN store. They know many people share accounts so they can also download a DLC or a game without having to pay for it. This is also similar to what is happening with the online passes where you have to go and buy a separate pass to play online if the game is second hand.
Sony just want people buying more games to make more money, I'm okay with that but not when they do stuff like this. This is why more people pirate games instead of buying them.
