Account on friends system

[ Edited ]
8 replies 133 views Edited Sep 8, 2012

I'm fairly new to the PS community and I was wondering if I'd be able to login to my PSN account on a friends console and download a game that's available to PLUS members to their system and play it?

 

I want to still be able to play it on my system at home as well.

 

I know your able to do it on the xbox, but since I don't have my xbox anymore I moved to the PS3. I don't know if the feature exist yet for the Playstation.

As far As I am aware you can log onto you psn account from you friends system but will only be able to play the downloaded game on their system. It will not save to your account if that is what you are wondering.

I've already downloaded/installed the game to my system, but she wants to play the game as well. The way I see it you should be able to download/install the game to another system and as long as my profile is on her system it should play with no problems.

Be aware you can only change you game sharing on systems once every six months I was told by a Sony rep by phone. So you will not Be able to change systems with your account to do this again for 6 months. Means you can only game share on 2 systems tops every six months now

Games-sharing is not allowed & is against Sony's T & C's.

You can share if You are the one playing the game with your friend but game sharing to let other user receive game content for free I against Sony rules hence why they are limiting game sharing to other consoles once every six months it is my understanding sometime with in the next year game sharing will be eliminated all together on the PSN

I don't know if you're just using the wrong language IRISH but Sony is not limiting game-sharing at all, game-sharing is not allowed period, what I think you are referring to is being able to deactivate your PS3 console once every 6 months, not game-share with a different person every six months!

Yes you are correct I call it game sharing But ye it is the activation of game content on another ps3 for your user ID. My mistake people sorry did not think that one through. But Yes once every six months you can change it now limit to to ps3's.
