265w ago - Update: According to [Register or Login to view links], SCEE's Community Team Leader MusterBuster [Register or Login to view links] 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 [Register or Login to view links] 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:

• In-game items or content that you have purchased may be downloaded from PlayStation Store. Pursuant to the particular terms of use that govern a specific in-game item or content you have purchased, you may use that item or content on up to three (3) different PlayStation 3 systems that have been activated for your account. You may deactivate or activate specific PlayStation 3 systems, as long as the maximum activated number of PlayStation 3 systems for your account at any given time is three (3).

• 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.

I bet this is ok, restoring a backup doesn't count as activation and you can format the disk whenever. Can't think of another reason to re-download a psn game, except than sharing the game with a friend and that's what Sony tries to reduce. As far as I know they lose money from every PS3 sold and that's because the console hosts very expensive hardware and to keep up with the other console's prices, they had to cut PS3's down.

On the other hand, how many PS3s can a family own, that we'd need to activate!

I have an account for US/AU/NZ/HK/JP and yes i agree the US one is the best of them all.

Although i have to use the NZ one for all my purchases as i need an American Credit Card to buy - as we don't sell PSN Cards here yet.

..but also sometimes its just the last region to make the change. (PsOne Classics, PSN) When its about money, yeah it IS first, but when its giving a better content, oh no, its not..

If you have a little time, please make a USA PSN account, browse the American PSN store for a while, see their nice Top Downloads, Top 10 statistics, see their PsOne Classics, wallpapers, ..etc. believe me you won't want to return back to your TOTALLY joke SCEE PSN..

Sweet dreams SCEE...
