    System Activation/Deactivation

    Okay so, I want my girlfriends PS3 to be my only 2nd system to be activated. I have previously downloaded things to her system via my account on her machine, but it's now telling me the system isn't activated, and I have to deactivate other systems etc. I have previously used my account on my brothers machine but, I can't really go to his house to deactivate my account via his PS3... how do I go about doing it manually so only my gf's system will show as a connected PS3 to my account? Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated. I tried googling it but all I get are very confusing means of doing so. Oi vei.

    I went to the Sony site to do it but it says Deactivation can ONLY be done using the console and not a PC. Which seems odd, I just want to delete all other traces of other PS3's from my account completely! lol. Anyway thanks, please reply quickly! [And no, I'm not attempting to download any PS+ items either, just straight up legit purchases]

    I had the same problem when my PS3 YLOD'd and they basically told me that I was screwed and could only provide a system "wipe" once. I was able to wipe my account from my PS3 that way and put it on my new one. I think that it is bull shit you can't wipe it from a computer, but I believe it's a security issue. Like if someone else wiped your account maliciously.

    Try contacting Sony on the phone or by email...they will have a better answer for you

    Hope you get it figured out.

    HOLD IT!

    I hope you read this before you actually do anything. Before they did the 2 active accounts thing, everything downloaded before that will still work. That also means that if you downloaded 5 of the same thing on 5 ps3s, your able to keep the accounts on the 5 ps3s and that stuff will still work.

    Now to what you need to do, you need to contact your brother and tell him how to deactivate your account. Remember that you can have 2 ps3s with the same account, so keep track of which have your account active. Active means your able to download stuff off that account. I have many ps3s with my account on it, but i use them to sync my trophies, not download stuff.

    Good luck with that, and if i am incorrect about something, i am sorry. My situation might be different from yours.

    wow johnny! thanks!

    I knew about the website, but i didnt know it can be used every 6 months! I did it once and thought i couldnt use it again. Your solution was way better than mine. Didnt even read your post before posting.
