Help with Deactivating/Reactivating Accounts.

5 replies 218 views Edited Dec 6, 2011

I want to deactivate accounts made on systems that are no longer accessable. To do this, I've found out the only way to do this is to deactivate every system that has my account on it through the Playstation Network website.

I'm just extremely cautious about everything so I just want some confirmation.

Once I have deactivated every account, I understand that I will not be able to play the games that were downloaded through that account on my Playstation 3.

My concern is when I REactivate the system, will everything work correctly? Will I be able to access everything I would normally be able to.

Deactiving the system does NOT mean deleting the account, is my real question I suppose.

Please reply soon, I'd very much appreciate it!

You regain access when you reactivate for game content on the PS3. Deactivating the system does not mean deleting the account.

So what will happen is:

I deactivate all of the systmes that have my account through the website. And then, I go back to my system, reactivate the account, and everything will work normally?

This goes for all of my friends too, correct?

Yes. I'm not sure what you mean for all of your friends though.

Your friends, you mean game-sharing?
