Well you have some good points about not sharing with strangers and the potential people who want to steal my credit card information I understand that, although I disagree with some of the points you made about COD(you can PM me if you wanna discuss that further ) Anyway I have good friends and we game online regularly; Gran turismo 5, Borderlands2, R6V2, -- what if I wanted to share game saves on his PS3 and he wanted to share his on my PS3, even if we already have our own games can we share accounts or saves at that point? --
sharing games saves is completely different then giving someone else your account info so they can make another account on THEIR PS3 and download a game they didn't pay for..... How people are so stupid they can't tell that's literally stealing from activision (in this case) I'll never know. And now that that person has your account info..... it's not like you can change your password afterwards without giving your friend the new password (or they wont' be able to play CoD or w/e anymore). Then there's the peole that lose their account cause their FORMER friend changes the password first (then they come on here and whine that they got hacked....... lol like they even know what hacking really is), and sony won't do jack about it (not like they should) since you're not supposed to give out your info in the first place.
Yes you're allowed to put your games on 5 different systems before you have to deactivate one..... but that's NOT so you can give your friends free games...................... Some people have huge homes (or not) and have more then one PS3 in the house. Or maybe your Ps3 died and have to get a new one. When one dies ( which happened quite often with the FAT ones.... thankfully not the slim ones... i'm glad i waited to get one lol) you should deactivate it as soon as you get a new one but some people don't even think about it. This 5 PS3 rule wasn't around at first, I'm sure they did that so they wouldnt' have to field so many calls from people replacing theirs.
ok, understandable. But my friend and I have all of our own games and paying for a game is not a big deal at all. He wants to access my game saves and I want to access his, do I need to have my account on his PS3 and his on mine or can i Just copy game saves to a flash drive and then transfer them to the other PS3 or all of thee above
lol ok well that i have no idea about that.... my friend of over 20 years lives in orlando now and my neighbors.... one uses his Xbox more (or his PC) and the other has a Wii (eewwwww lol) . But I think games saves are fine. There might be a few games where the save files are linked to your account, but I'm sure I've read where people have taken flash drives with their game saves to a friend's house and loaded their own save to show said friend something (etc etc)....
Hello, I don't totally agree with you, I am not violating any agreement if I share it with my wife legally on US.. She has her council and her game and we share some game like Sonic, IF I CAN Buy a physical game and let her borrow it, it apply the same plus the agreement says clearly to 3 or some new cases 2 consoles at the same time, I have a vita, ps3 and she have a ps3. ON A Legal case, I will win, since I read the full agreement, and in a marriage my property is hers and her is mine on legal grounds on US. But to her to somebody else hell no, it has my credit card info in it D:, not even my mom or dad. Maybe to a our future son .-. But with parental control.
Both you and your friend can get PS Plus on your accounts and use the Online Storage feature. You will need access to that person's account but there's really no other way to share game saves. Once you are signed into that person's account you can download game saves they backed backed up to online storage and they can do the same to yours. I retain my advice that you should keep your account to yourself or only share it with people you trust implicitly. For me, that would mean someone I would trust with my life and even then I probably wouldn't do it but you can make your own choices regarding that. Also, Flash drives rarely work for giving game saves because 9/10 publisher copy protect game save information and PS Plus is capable of backing up saves for 99.9% of all PS3 games. Regrettably, it doesn't work for PSONE or PS2 saves. Most of the time you transfer games saves from a flash drive it does one of several things. One, it will not let you copy the save at all to the flash drive. Two, it will let you copy but you will not be able to use the game save. Three, it will let you use the game save but you will not be able to earn trophies for the game.
