A big issue reguarding PSN limits (5 systems per account)

#1PK_Omega_XPosted 9/22/2011 12:40:41 AM
i made the mistake of having a psp + ps3, and upgrading models without ever knowing how to properly unlink a user account, so i ended up with two psps activated, two ps3s activated, and i dont have any of the units because i ebayed them. now yes the limits 5 but of course anyobody with any sense would be paranoid to buy a ps vita knowing if it ever broke, theyd be screwed out of EVERYTHING they purchased for it digitally, especially since the systems HALF DIGITAL! so my two questions:

question 1: will sony UNDOUBTABLY reset this limit for me completely if i call them without question?

and

question 2: is it 5 systems altogether? because its quite easy to get 3 psps, two ps3s activated if you ugrade your psp unit and ebay old models which probably a crapload of people did..i thought resetting to factory would make everything reset, but nope.

thanks. if anyone can answer my question ill tell you a secret about how to see a full list of ps3s and psps that are currently linked to your PSN =)

Its 5 counts towards psp, 5 towards ps3. Not 5 total altogether.

https://account.qriocity.com/pc/login.action

go there and sign in your psn account and it will show you which systems been activated and how many.

i just tried this and it won't allow you to deactivate the system from that site.

i have another ps3 activated (my old fat 80GB) and it tells me to use the XMB to deactivate and that it cannot be done from a PSP or PC.

Hmm a flag with the peace symbol on it. Your militant dictatorship can't have that, now can it Mario?

I never really thought about it but I'm also in the same boat. I had a 60GB launch PS3 which YLOD'd on me so I can't deactivate that, I have my current 120GB, my cousin has my account on his PS3 and a friend has my account on his and he doesn't even use his PS3 anymore. It'll be a pain if I need to deactivate any accounts.

Why not...just get a new account? I mean, if you don't have any of the other 4 systems, how much could you loose?

A new account means re-buying any content you have bought on the old acount, I'm pretty sure.

Thank you, gentlemen! Someday, I will repay you. Unless, of course, I can't find you or if I forget.

Sony doesn't count all the systems your account links to together. It's separate for each system

I'm pretty sure it's 3 accounts for PSP and 5 for PS3. The Vita will have another 3-5 accounts for you to activate.

No it doesn't unless you decide to delete your account off the system, which would be pretty stupid.
