2 replies 227 views Edited May 16, 2013

I need to install a map pack onto another account on my ps3. Bought one for one family member and another person in the house on the same ps3 wants it as well. How do i do this without paying twice?

Usually, if the accounts are on the same system, any user can access downloaded content from another account.  Have you tried it?  If it actually is restricted to one user, there is no way to transfer/copy it to their account; they would have to buy it or play with the purchasing account.

Sign-on the account that owns the DLC, while on the PS3 you are trying to download it on to.

Start the download, sign-off, then sign-on to the account that wants the DLC.

 

When it finishes downloading, install it.

 

This will only work if the DLC itself allows the 2-account share limit issued by Sony.

Otherwise, yes, your family member will need to purchase the DLC as well.
