    What should i do? :(

    Hey Guys,

    Please help me! I have a PSN account that I've owned for well over a year. This account has quite a few purchases on it. I have many platinums on it, 18 to be exact. Two days ago I asked a trusted friend if we could gameshare. He accepted and we shared games. It all went well until he decided to give me a "raise" on my trophy level. He hacked three of my games which were Prototype 2 and a few other games. When I saw the timestamps i got really mad at him. The timestamps are like 2008-2009 when the game released on 2012 >.< I seriously don't know what to do now. I'm thinking of abandoning this account and creating a new one incase I decide to play on it and Sony decides to ban it later on. What should I do? Create a new account or stay on this one? I am seriously really pissed off at him anyone can tell that i've hacked.

    Thanks,

    Considering that you shared games with each other, Sony are more than likely going to ban your account so you might as well make a new one.





    You see, madness, as you know, is like gravity. All it takes is a little push

    You done fucked up...

    Trust no-one with your account and don't be silly enough to gameshare, that alone can get you banned from the PSN.

    Don't worry about the PSN purchases - as long as you keep the original account on your PS3 activated, you can still access the purchased content on any other PSN account.

    No, that is not gameshareing. ant is telling the guy that as long as he keeps the account active on his PS3, he can keep using the content he purchased. :stare:

    I think you pretty much answered your own question. If you're that pissed off about the situation, then create a new PSN account. And just to clarify, you actually can't get in shit for gamesharing like you did. Sony already admitted they knew about it, but it was a huge reason why they trimmed the number of users on one account from 4 to 2. Obviously you learned the risks of gamesharing/account sharing first hand, and as others have stated you really have to be sure you trust the person 100% if you're going to share your account with them.

    I share my account, but it's with my son, so if I buy something off the PS store that he likes he can download it too. My general rule of thumb though is I won't share my account with anyone. I pay for everything that's on my system, and that's the way I'm going to keep it.

    Gamesharing -

    Hitman: Moondog, guess what I got?
    Moondog: What's that Hit?
    Hitman: I got the new DLC for xyz game.
    Moondog: Can you give me your PSN info so I can download it too and play it for free on my playstation?
    Hitman: Sure dude. Here's my username and password.

    Pretty much, this for me. I share stuff with my kid. I've only shared stuff with one other person, but we split the cost, and I made a "dummy" account just for that one DLC. That way, my main account is still safe.

    so it's only classed as gamesharing if the activated account is on someone else's PS3 instead of his, that's exactly the same as what i've always thought, i just didn't realise there was a difference cos i've never had more than 1 account lol

    Having one account is not the issue. You can have one account and share your details with someone else, allowing them access to content they didn't pay for. That's the issue.

    I see a little of Abel's influence on this one! But overall good example Hitman

    This might give Abel an idea for another thread? IS it good for gameshare with boosters?

    ... and that's entirely between you and him. If you feel comfortable with that, then as you were. As ant said, it's not illegal per se, just looked down upon (by Sony).

    yeah it's worse when you get some random asking to share, i had one guy add me then ask to share my stuff, then he was so offended when i told him to fuck off (but in nicer words lol)

    Well, between the responses this person got here and from his 100% duplicate thread on .org, I'd say he's good to go.
