Sony reduces PSN Game activation limit

It was a boon for PSN subscribers :(. Sony’s current policy allows you to activate your PSN Game on upto 5 PlayStation systems. This allows for literal game sharing among peers as you can literally split the bill and enjoy the game amongst yourselves.

Starting November 18, after the PSN maintainance, PSN Games will only activate on upto two PlayStation systems.

Any game purchased after November 18th will have the new limit imposed. Any games bought prior will retain the legacy 5 system limit. On the upside (at least that’s how Sony is selling the idea), deactivating games/systems for games will no longer require you to login to your PSN account on your console. Sony will be opening a PlayStation Network account management website to handle such transactions and other account related concerns.

The limitation will also affect the upcoming PlayStation Vita. If you purchase beyond the indicated date, no sharing of PS One classics on your PSP, PS3 and PS Vita for you. Pick two and and only two.

Sony says that the policy change is of consideration of balance between consumer convenience and content creator copyright protection.

      You have 2 options, install a plugin to bypass the security check (PSN fucker/lover) or install 6.60 PRO-B10.

        I already have psnfucker v2.1 but still can’t login. It says that I need a system update. Do I need to install both?

        • sylv3rblade November 8, 2011

          I’ll try to go online using my PSP, it currently has 6.35 PRO-B10 installed.

      Looks like you really need at least 6.xx to connect to PSN. Here’s a screenshot from my PSP:

        ouch. does updating has the chance of bricking my psp? can I update directly from 5.03 to 6.xx firmware? and lastly. what is the best 6.xx frimware to install a cfw?

        • sylv3rblade November 9, 2011

          1. Upgrading OFW always has a minor risk of bricking.
          2. Unload ChickHen and 5.03 GEN-C (turn off your PSP) then install the 6.xx OFW.
          3. I would recommend 6.35 Pro-B10.

          Thanks! 6.35 it is! Game! Nd ba mahirap mag MH sa psp go?

        • sylv3rblade November 9, 2011
