    Deactivating account question

    I reached the limit of activating my PS3 account. I want to deactivate them and then just activate it on my current PS3. My question is, where can I do this? Does it erase all my game saves?

    Just go to Account Management > System Activation > PS3 System > Game or Video > Deactivate, and no it doesn't.

    There is a link in the Online Instruction Manual that sends you to a page where you can deactivate all systems at one.

    I've activated my account and my friend's houses. Does that deactivate the accounts there as well?

    qriocity didn't work properly but it did let you deactivate all your PS3 systems, cos that's what i did, after that you can reactivate them one by one through the console and give them a nickname on qriocity to keep track of what's what, be warned though the 5 active PS3s is only for PS3s you already had active, once you deactivate them all you're stuck with just 2.

    Qriocity is the fastest way to deactivate your account across all devices, but you can only use the service once every 6 months. Keep in mind that although you can have 5 activations, content purchased after November 17th 2011 will only be available on TWO devices.

    I know this is an old thread. I didn't want to make a new thread for my question.

    I have 2 ps3's and I want to trade one in to go towards my ps4 pre order. If I deactivate my account on my playstation and delete all my games I have downloaded along with the saves (I have them in the cloud) I will be all right or is there a way to deactivate the whole system.

    If it's your original console, you may also want to deactivate the video activation, as it's only available on a single console.

    Yes it is my original console. I haven't used any video content on it. Do I still need to deactivate video content?

    You're also assuming that Sony will not add separate PS4 activations. There are already separate activations for the PSP/Vita and for PS3. I'm sure they will be able to add 2 activations for PS4s as well. But either way, whenever you trade in a console, you definitely want to go to Account Management on the system and Deactivate Games and Video. Just to be safe.
