You can only have the same PSN account on 2 different PS3s to cut down on the "Gamesharing" you are asking about. Game Sharing violates the PSN terms of service. You can get banned for game sharing. And you certainly should not talk about doing it on an official Sony website, where people that work for Sony can read about your plans to game share.

 

The “PSN”/“SEN” TERMS OF SERVICE AND USER AGREEMENT says:

 

**You must keep your password and other account details secret (other than your Online ID), and not share them with anyone else, to prevent unauthorised use of your Sony Entertainment Network account. If you share account details with someone who uses your account in breach of these Conditions or we believe that your account has been compromised, your account and/or access to Sony Entertainment Network may be suspended or terminated.**

everyone pretty much does it ive never seen anny of my friends get banned but i couldnt trust anyone taking my account and doing that, what if i dont get my account back :/.

dont do it though for the slight chance you will be caught and because its hard to trust anyone over the internet

I gameshare with my daughter, you can have your downloads on two systems.  If you have more then that you won't be able to download and you'll have to contact SONY.  I found this out because I replaced the hard drive in my 80 GB PS3 with a 500 GB but failed to deactivate my 80GB hard drive and SONY thought I was using 3 systems instead of 2.

There is no problem gamesharing with friends, relatives that you could trust. You could also deactivate ps3 systems on the SEN website

See that's what I want to do but does it work on Full Games too or just DLCs?. I want to get Borderlands_2 but I want to be able to play it on both my PS3s at the same time so I can play with my kids, can I do that. I'm 99.9% certain that it's not a violation, I gameshared an $8 Zombie my little girl wanted (the game's on both PS3s although I haven't tried to Co-op with her) and I'd like to Game Share Borderlands_2 also, that way we don't have to Split Screen. And I DON"T want to buy two copies of the game, I already did that once with Black Ops

If you're sharing in the same household I doubt anyone at Sony would call that stealing. No matter what anyone says, buying 2 of the same title for one household would be a joke. There shouldn't be an issue with Borderlands 2 working online with both consoles, unless it has an online pass, in which you'd simply have to purchase another for the second console. Wait for someone who has tried it to post before you take a chance.

That makes sense BUT GOD I'm so bored. I LOVED Black Ops but don't see myself getting into the other CODs and Black Ops 2 is still so far away. I didn't really like the Resistance 3, Gotham City Imposters, and KZ3 multiplayer experience so aside from COD (Black Ops 2 to be more exact) I don't have a lot of faith in the online multiplayer experince anymore. BUT what Black Ops did fail at was the campaign, it was awesome but TOO short. I heard Borderlands had a good story/campaign and so that interesting me too. I guess I could try the original Borderlands but I don't like playing old games. Maybe Rage too, the demo had a freaky experience. Thanks though, Borderlands_2 is so new maybe I should wait a little.
