Sony updates digital content policy for PlayStation devices

An update to Sony’s policy for digital content activation has been posted via a Sony HK Press Release.  As of November 18, content (games, videos, etc) bought from with a PlayStation Network account will be available for activation on upto 3 devices (from the previous limit of two devices only).  While not as generous as the first iteration of the limit (which allowed PSN content to be activated on upto five devices), it’s a welcome change for those looking to get a  Vita and a Vita TV to go with their PlayStation 3 (or any combination of those consoles).

The activation limit is now as follows:
