$20 BUCKS OF INJUSTICE

[ Edited ]
5 replies 309 views Edited Oct 6, 2012

ok So It all started back when ps3 came out everybody was excited and playing CoD MW online so i bought myself the game of the year edition and since i had the map pack i shared it with my online close friends. (back then i didnt knew much about the system activation thing) so i maxed out on my current account. Later in some time i bought myself a $20 psn card  to buy the movie cloverfield in hd, I bought the movie and of coursed proceed to download it (movie downloads take forever). So while the movie is downloading thats when my ps3 decided to die on me, with a little luck i managed to deactivate my account (both in video and game) so i could use it in the next ps3 im buying. I bought the ps3 slim a year after and said to myself i wasted 20 bucks on a movie that i didnt even get to see. here is where injustice happened...

I went to download my movie wich i purchased fair and square, but the psn store appeared as if i needed to buy it again. I had my old account activated in both video and game and still it appeared as if i didnt purchased the movie. i went to my downloads list(wich its a long long download list btw) and found clover field and its always sunny in philadelphia episode. I proceed to download them and a system error ocurred as if i couldnt download them because they were purchased in my old system. I say that is not very fair at all, im still very loyal to sony despite that misunderstanding. but i tried to write to them what happened and asked if they could deactivate all of the other active accounts except for my main one that im using now, and i got no reply. I had to create a new account so i can game share with my girlfriend cuz in my current one im maxed out still to very old friends accounts that arent even active. 

I love game sharing with my girlfirend, but i hate having two different accounts to game share with her. We see each other every couple of days and love co-op games and even record our gaming sessions. But it bothers me that i cant download a movie that i purchased and wasted 20 dollars on and cant even see it on my main account .

 

To whoever took the time to read this I thank you and if you know why this happened or if it has a solution i thank you very much.
Happy trophy Hunting and Godspeed 

Att MIKE

There are two things you need to understand:

 

#1 Game-Sharing is not allowed, period.

 

#2 Movie downloads are a one-time only deal.

Gamesharing is allowed to one other console otherwise you wouldnt be able to do it 

but the movie thing is way unfair

Actually game-sharing is not allowed at all, the option to use a game on another PS3 is there for you to take your own games & play them at another location, not to give to a mate.

technically both ps3's (mine and my girlfriends) are mine because i bought them the only thing we share is my other account.  i hope they can fix that in the future about the movies stuff cuz the one time deal is a rip off :/

So long as both the PS3's have the master account on it both PS3's will be able to access the games, as for videos, yea they are on-time only download but it appears Sony will offer a one time good will gesture & allow a re-download of the movies if say a PS3 was to break.
