Welcome to the Playstation Online Community.

Sony doesn't do this for you, however there is now a way for you to do this yourself via a website, unfortunately I don't have the link available to give you.

Hold it.  Putting your account on a system, meaning signing-up a user profile for Playstation Network under your PSN account, is entirely separate from activation.  There is no limit to the number of PS3s, or PSPs, that you can sign-in to the Playstation Network from using one PSN account. You could have a user profile set up with your PSN account on 1,000 PS3s.  It wouldn't matter.  Activation limits the number of PS3s that you can download and use games, videos, music, comics, and DLC from the Playstation Store.  That is limited to two consoles of each type (consoles activated before November 19th, 2011 are grandfathered; but only as long as they remain activated, and you can't activate any more consoles until you deactivate all but one of the current ones). 

Here is the link to deactivate all consoles.

https://account.sonyentertainmentnetwork.com/cam/devices/device-media-list.action

On  the Media and Devices panel of Sony Entertainment Network account management, Click on the Game box.  A button labeled Deactivate All will appear.  If you click the button, all of the consoles activated for game content on your PSN account will be deactivated.  You will have to manually activate the two that you want to continue to use your Playstation Store game content on.  Note that once you use the Deactivate All function, you can't use it again for six months.  That shouldn't be a problem in your case.  It may take a little time for the deactivations to register throughout PSN, so that you can activate consoles again.
