This is a discussion on Sony Limits console activations to TWO! within the General PS3 Discussion forum, part of the Everything PlayStation; Very disappointing. At least you can deactivate stuff from website now....

    Ok, I already have my psn account activated on 5 ps3s, but my current my ps3 is dead. So I got a little problem, I think I can still deactivate the account from the dead ps3 so there will be 1 slot available (I can get enough time to deactivate it before the ps3 shuts off), anyways the question is, can I reactivate the account on a new ps3 that I will buy after nov. 18th?

    I mean, my account is already on 4 different consoles, can I activate the 5th slot after nov. 18th?

    Yeah i just had to buy a new ps3 because my launch system finally died and i guess its cool that i can de-activate from the net. It is kind of messed up that they would limit use of content, Sony needs to step its game back up.

    They said they're going to launch a page where you can deactivate it via the web.

    So from what im reading my interpretation is that you can STILL have your name on 5 systems, but content is at a max of 2 systems??

    So consumers can take even more damage? No.

    This change is pretty BS I agree, especially for those of us who DO own more than two PS3s (I had owned 3 different PS3s at one point).

    Granted, I don't game share and since I have PS+, the "free" content I get from there is only accessible from my account anyway. It's just a real pain that you have to activate/deactivate your console in order to play games if you have more than 2 systems that you actively use.

    One thing you guys haven't seemed to mention was the portable side of this. That's a much bigger issue. That's because (and it's been confirmed on the blog through comments) that you can only activate your account on two different portables. That includes the PS Vita when that hits. So if you are a person who has a PSP, a PSP Go, and you want the PS Vita, then you are kinda screwed. Granted, this is only for PSN store bought games, not games you own the physical media for (obviously), but it's still a pain. I do have friends who own PSP phats and PSP Gos who plan on picking up the Vita and this is a launch purchase deal breaker for them.

    I don't think the Vita is going to be that much of a difference when it comes to people caring. I don't think people will use it over their ps3 if they have the choice. Even though I love my PSP and probably will love the Vita. I probably won't play it as much as I want to.

    Lol, this was the initial thread created that spawned the thread you linked to be front page. If you haven't noticed, that's why there are a lot of repeated threads and none of them ever being locked. So if you want to post a link, goto the front page link to post it on since that was the copy thread. Also look at post #3. Right before the FP post was made.....

    It didn't spawn the other thread at all mate, the difference between the 2 treads was like 20 minutes as it look me longer to get it all set out neater.
