    I have a question... So I have 2 PS3s with my account on it. I plan toget the PSVita. Can I have a 3rd acount on the Vita or does this mean I cant collect trophies on it with this account then?

    I was online all day and the PSN wasn't down, a couple of friends were playing MW3/Skyrim while being online too.
    Still it's awesome that I can deactivate my account on other PS3s since I had my account on a friends PS3 and he sold it so I want to make sure nobody can enter there.

    PS3s and handhelds have separate activations. I'm assuming when the Vita comes out, there will probably be a firmware update, or just a network update, that rolls it into the activation fold. Currently, there are separate activation limits for PS3 and PSP, so I would hope that the PSV will get its own activation limit as well.

    Ok under devices I have all my devices listed separately and it seems like I can deactivate each one separately. Does this have a 6 month wait on any activations afterward. I only ask because everyone is talking about it like if I can only deactivate all at once. And what about the stuff I bought many moons ago. Can't those old activations still run my purchases from before the rule change. This is just wrong anyway.

    Before I deactivate my account, I would like to know does anyone know if I will still have my full 5 downloads of DLC from the store? I know that it now only does 2 PS3s but would like to know what happens to the things I have already bought. Is it just the things bought starting from today (18/11/11) that's only for 2 PS3s and would I still be able to download the older stuff again on 5 PS3s?

    I think it's going to be separated just like the PSP. PS3 has it's own activations, PSP has it's own activations and I don't see why PS Vita wouldn't have their own activations right? And they all use the same accounts.

    Yeah, same here. I was able to see my friends online but the only thing that was down for me was the store.

    I'm guessing you haven't tried to deactivate it one at a time. If you click deactivate that way, it will ONLY instruct you how to deactivate it. Basically "manually" deactivate it. It won't give you the option to actually deactivate it remotely. The only way so far is to follow the instructions I posted on the first post. And yes, it's "Deactivate All" unfortunately.

    I can't confirm it yet seeing as how I gotta call up my friends to activate mine again on their PS3s and see if it still works, lol. Hopefully someone can confirm.

    I'm not entirely sure if it's the same but we're only talking about deactivating "game content" not video content. I can't vouch whether it works for that or not. We'll have to see an official release from Sony as to what they actually did or did not do.

    This is great! My roommate had a PS3 and I created my profile on his system. He moved out and I was never able to deactivate it and I don't have a way of contacting him. Now I can get that activation back! Yay!

    If that's the case, how come everyone goes happy-go-lucky with reseting all activations? I would do it come the time when I need it myself. Also, I thought Sony mentioned that older games aren't affected by this. Still a lot of questions unanswered so I definitely won't deactivate my account.

    So let me get this straight, if anyone knows or has tested...

    It seems that technically, we can have our name on 5 systems still, however, purchased content on or past 11-18-2011 is only shared between 2? So what about previous content and the 5 systems. Does it now say anything for an error message?

    hopefully i asked that the right way...

    Yeah I think that's the same question I asked earlier. If anyone else wants to know the answer to this then here is what I have found.

    Done a lot good bit of research into it be sure and apparently Sony has said anything bought before that date can still be shared in 5 systems. Anything bought after that date can only go into 2 systems. I haven't tried it yet so I cant be sure but I have read this in a number of places saying it so it has to be true

    Hope this clears it up to anyone else who is wondering the same thing
