    Should I feel bad about this?

    Ok so this is something that bugs me on and off in that I was looking through some of the trophies I got for games a while ago and looked at Midnight Club: Los Angeles and I have all 10 South Central DLC trophies back in 2009. The thing is I gameshared the dlc with one of my friends at school but I thought gamesharing was an ok thing to do at the time because I didn't think the terms were very clear. I am a person that makes sure everything I do is legit and with absolutely no cheating like I don't ever cheat trophies yet I have felt kinda bad about having the 10 south central trophies when I gameshared it. Although all 10 of the trophies have been earned legitimately.

    You certainly shouldn't feel bad about the trophies since you got those legit. I also wouldn't feel too guilty over a one-time thing like gamesharing. Did you put your account on his PS3 and let him dl the dlc, or did you give him your user info? If it was the first, then I think it's fairly legit.

    So basically you feel bad for gamesharing? Well I gameshare with friends all the time. I just believe it's wrong to gameshare with people you don't know. They might get your info and whatnot. IMO

    It's even risky to game share with "friends". I've had some fuckhead friends before, so I'd only do it if they've been my friend for a very long time.

    Then I guess they don't deserve to be called "friends". My friends that play PS3 are awesome and wouldn't do anything bad

    Meh, you still technically earned the trophies legit, just not the actual DLC itself. I wouldn't feel bad about it if I were in your shoes, at least not after a while. Just remember that there are desperate people out there who hacks trophies and don't earn trophies legit, it might make you feel a little better about the situation.

    I felt similar to that when I used a glitch to earn a couple trophies on Jak 2 and 3, so I have a good idea about what that feels like.

    I didn't give any of my details but he kindly lent me his to get Midnight Club L.A dlc and he really wanted me to play WaW zombie map pack with him that I didn't have so got that too. But this was right back in 2009 when I was still at school and at the time I didn't think anything of it but I finally started to think about the trophies I earned from it but like I said I earned the trophies legitimately just not the DLC itself. Thanks for reassuring me guys that I shouldn't feel bad since the trophies were fair.

    It's been like 3 years, dude. I wouldn't worry too much about it. I got a few games via gamesharing, got trophies legit, I don't feel bad whatsoever. It'd be like if you friend lent you a physical game and got trophies on it. You didn't buy the game, but you got the trophies legit. So, no worries.

    Yeah I think I have some sort of obsession with it and everything has to be fair, I just needed some reassurance (I know its stupid)... but I completely agree that it's just like borrowing a physical game.

    IMO game sharing with someone you actually know in real life is just like borrowing a game from them...

    I think if you're already feeling bad about yourself for partaking in gamesharing, then you've earned to go easy on yourself with the situation.

    Game-Sharing is no different than you borrowing a retail/disk game from your friend. Would you feel bad if you got a plat from a game that you physically borrowed? Probably not. Just because Sony doesn't want you to do doesn't make it morally wrong. You're fine. Sony is just greedy like every other company that is too big to see their customers anymore.

    It reminds me of a guy in Borderlands bugging me off, about giving him my acc and let him download the DLC packs, and I didnt even knew the guy ! Just dont gameshare with anybody who isnt someone you know, just dont. :stare:

    PD: Dont feel bad about that, and dont do gameshare with people you dont know.

    I only gameshare with friends IRL (Don't so it anymore) so I can fuck them up if they try to mess with my account

    As long as you got them legit then I don't really see a reason to feel bad. Although it all depends on what the gameshark did to affect the other racers..... hmmmmm
