    PSN Version of Warhawk No Longer Locked to Purchased Account

    Sponsored Links
    Just logged in today with one of my alt accounts and it is no longer locked to the account that originally purchased it.

    This ticked me off so much when I originally bought it from the PlayStation Store that I never bought a PSN version of any game due to not wanting to get burnt again by Sony.

    Why would I buy a game if my whole family can't play it on there own accounts?

    I'm sure the original account must be present on the console your playing on but I can't confirm this because my wife is playing on her account at the moment. lol

    Well thumbs up to Sony for finally getting rid of this stupid restriction.

    Regards,
    Krack3n

    It has been like this for some time.. you MUST keep the original account on your PS3 that you purchased it from - but you don't have to load it up in that Account.. this is the whole "Game Sharing" thing thats been going around.. sharing your PSN Account with others - and sharing your Playstation Store downloads..

    Yes I know what game sharing is. LOL

    It's just that the PSN version was locked so the only person who could play it was the original account that bought it even if that account was present on the console.

    You Must have the account on the Ps3 , and the it's password must be saved . if u do not save and make the device remember it , when launching the game with another account , it will prompt u to go and save the pass of the account with which u bought the game

    awesome. so that means... well, a lot of things actually. for those who couldn't buy the absolutely fantastic game Warhawk, you can just ask your friend who bought it, to lend you his account to play whenever he's not using it, or just to try and see how it plays before you go out to buy it on PSN or disc version.

    For my part, i already bought Warhawk on disc. I don't have an international credit card, and Sony doesn't offer paypal payment yet, so that sucks big time!!

    anyways, this new move by Sony is definitely a good reason to promote Warhawk via account sharing. It makes no sense to lock it on the same console. If videos and pictures and disc games are available to all accounts on the same console, it makes no sense locking PSN games to only one account.

    it means that now it's possible to share Warhawk with others? or only play with a different account on the same system??
