DLC Sharing Between 2 PS3s and a Vita

5 replies 422 views Edited Jul 24, 2012

Hi,

 

I have read that DLC from Little Big Planet on PS3 will be able to be shared with LBP Vita, but we have 2 PS3s and have shared all of our LBP DLC between both of our PS3s.  Does this mean that I will not be able to get my DLC on my Vita? Or can you do two PS3s and a Vita? I've tried searching for an answer on Google, but I don't really know how to phrase it right.

This should help you out:


Maximum Number of Systems

There is a maximum number of systems that can be activated with one account which differs depending on the content.


For purchased/downloaded content before November 17, 2011 the number of systems for activation is:

  • For Game Content - Five (5) PS3 and/or portable systems

  • For Video Content - One (1) PS3 and up to Three (3) portable systems


As of November 18, 2011, number of systems for activation is:

  • For Game Content - Two (2) PS3 and/or portable systems

  • For Video Content - One (1) PS3 and up to Three (3) portable systems


If you exceed this amount, you will need to deactivate a system before the new one can be used to download content. You must also have the system with you in order to activate or deactivate it.

Thank you so much! So, if I'm understanding right, I can deactivate one of my PS3s if I wanted to, and have one PS3 and my Vita activated.  What happens to the DLC I've downloaded on the deactivated PS3? Do I have to delete it off of my system to be able to redownload it on the Vita? Or would deactivating the second PS3 automatically take care of that?

Correct, you could deactivate one of your PS3's & then have one PS3 & one VITA activated, DLC is not really specific to a particular PS3 or VITA it is specific to the account/PSN ID.

 

As for the DLC, there is no need to delete it from one to be able to re-download it to another, just activating another unit & signing in with the same PSN ID & password wil be fine, then all your DLC should be in your download list to re-download.
