Update: According to http://www.thesixthaxis.com/2009/11/25/new-sony-terms-of-service-is-a-typo-its-still-5/, 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 http://playstation.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/playstation.cfg/php/enduser/popup_adp.php?p_faqid=1030&p_created=1209063636&p_sid=9-LkLUGj 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.
