How can I download DLC on my other account?

6 replies 214 views Edited Dec 1, 2012

I downloaded DLC on my account and now it won't let me download it on my second account. It doesn't show up on the download list in account management. I assumed that when you install DLC it installs it into the system, not the account. Can I use this DLC on any account as long as it is on the same system? Please help

TRY PUTTING YOUR OLD ACCOUNT ON YOUR NEW SYSTEM AS A FRIEND, YOU CAN HAVE UPTO 5 ACCOUNTS ON ONE SYSTEM .

Any downloads are locked to your account and will only work with this account

Thats just not how it works.....

Cognitive Dissonance - The ability to understand multiple viewpoints even if they conflict with one another - and still use critical thinking, logical thought, and common sense to come to the realization that only ONE is the correct one and the others are wrong.

You need to put the account you have existing purchases with, on the other PS3 you have. And then activate the PS3.

 

 

Not all purchases will work on other user accounts.

Some DLC will work for any accounts on the same PS3.  You can't download it with a second account because it's owned by the first accout, but if you've downloaded it with the first account, it may work with the second account.  

 

The claim that "YOU CAN HAVE UPTO 5 ACCOUNTS ON ONE SYSTEM" is inaccurate and misleading.  You can have many more than 5 accounts (I'm not sure what the actual limit is), but they were probably thinking of having a single account on 5 systems (which is also inaccurate).
