    Sony Limits console activations to TWO!

    Upcoming Change To PlayStation 3 And PSP Game Content On PlayStation Networkfrom PlayStation.Blog.Europe by Gordon Thornton
    Wed like to inform you of some upcoming changes to the usage policies for PlayStation Network game content. As of November 18, 2011, the number of devices that can be activated on one PlayStation Network account for game content purchased from the PlayStation Store will be updated.

    For game content purchased after November 18, 2011, a new policy will apply and the number of devices that can be activated will be as follows:

    PS3: Users will be able to play the game on up to 2 activated PS3 systems.
    PSP: Users will be able to play the game on up to 2 activated PSP systems.
    Please note that this update will not affect game content purchased before November 18. The PSP rights include PSP-1000/2000/3000 series as well as the PSPgo system.

    PlayStation Network users are able to change the activation setting through each device, and Sony Computer Entertainment plans to provide a new PlayStation Network account management website where users will be able to deactivate particular devices attached to their PlayStation Network account via their PC.

    For more details on how to activate/deactivate the devices, please read this guide or contact consumer services.

    It's only a big deal to people who gameshare, or have more than 3 PS3s [Either they own more than 3, or they've bought/gotten more than 3 due to replacements.].

    And even then, it's only for games bought after the new policy goes into effect. So it's not really a huge deal at all.

    This is a very big deal. I use my ps3's very often and the new content will only be allowed on 2 ps3's? Extremely disappointed and pissed about this.

    I've bought everything I own legit, and this is very aggravating to me.

    Granted this article and everything is for EU only... When or if it hits the US. I'll be making some phone calls and protesting this.

    Yah just read it on US blog a minute ago. And yes, this is the thread that created the other one I believe. They always make duplicate threads when it comes to "top news".

    not many peeps can afford those 14.99 map packs alongside the 59.99 game to begin with.

    Well this sucks.

    They'll be losing out on a nice chunk of change from this, I would imagine, from people who can only afford to do group buys, or even those who just don't feel $15 is a justifiable price for a few new maps or an hour of new content. Those people won't be spending any money now.

    Because my bluray drive broke, I have to get a new system. Now I'll either have to only get my new content on one system I own or not be able to use them at a friend's house when I visit. Then there's the people who legitimately own three or more systems, not counting people who use multiple ones between relatives houses (like one at dad's, one at mom's, and one at grandma's, or whatever the setup may be).

    The only good thing about this is the ability to deactivate devices from your computer for those who have a system fry.
