I just bought a new ps3 after many ylod's. I bought ffvii only to find out it would not let me download it because my psn account has been activated on 5 other ps3's. one of them being the ylod, is there anyway i can deactivate it on that ps3 or is it too late?
You have to call Sony. Tell them you own 5 PS3s and one YLODed.
they will require a reciept to deactivate your old account (reciept from new purchase).
Unsure what will happen to your games though.
this is why gamesharing is bad.
unless you had 5 replacements from sony you are SOL. they wont deactivate game content otherwise. video content is all they will do . personal experiance
to reinterate what i said.
The above poster is correct, i needed to do this for my video account, dont think i did anything but redownload my games otherwise.
go to the support page and search. I seen something about that before you send it to them.
If you have attempted to troubleshoot your issue and think your PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system needs service:Before you send your system in:
if you can see the xmb -> How do I activate/deactivate my system on the PlayStation®Network?
