    New PS3 Problem

    So I have gotten a new PS3 . My problem is that I can't download any games or online passes I did on my old or redeem any type of code. The problem is apparently that 2 PS3s already have access to my stuff.

    I forgot to deactivate my old one before trading it in, is that a factor? And my friend's PS3 has my account on it too. Will deleting it there free me up? Any help is appreciated.

    It is official, I also edited my post with the link

    The only sucky part is that they don't really tell what system is what, so one of the ones you deactivate could be the one on your friend's system.

    Dude, deactivating your acc on your PS3 if you're getting rid of it is a no-brainer! Why did you not do it? And Koimia's link is the one you need, just open it in a new tab/window, log-in and deactivate the acc from both PS3s (just to be safe you deactivate it from the one you traded).

    This is all I get when i try to deactivate my PS3 and whatever other PS3 is listed there. I only have 1 so I have no idea why there are 2 listed there:

    [top]How to Deactivate a PlayStation®3 System

    [top]Deactivate a PlayStation®3 System

    Some types of media that are available in PlayStation®Store can only be used on a limited number of systems per account. The number of systems that can be used depends on the type of media. You manage access by activating and deactivating systems from your PlayStation®Network account. You may also wish to deactivate your system if you plan on giving it to someone else or if you need to send it in for service. If you are not on the system or cannot see the XMB™ menu you will not be able to deactivate the system.



    You can only deactivate your PlayStation®3 system from PlayStation®Network using your PS3™ system. You cannot deactivate it using a PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system or PC.
    1. On the XMB™ menu, go to PlayStation®Network and sign in to your PlayStation®Network account.
    2. Go to Account Management > System Activation > PS3™ System.
    3. Select the type of content you no longer want your PS3™ system to use.
    4. Highlight [Deactivate System] and press the X button. Your system is now deactivated.
    5. Highlight [OK] and press the X button.
    For more information or assistance, please visit PlayStation® Support.

    If you guys are getting something different, please tell me how to do this properly.
