I was just wondering how sharing PSN purchases across multiple PlayStation devices works. For example, I downloaded MGS1 on my PS3 and even though it's already installed, the option to install or copy the game is still available. Would I be able to download this on a PS Vita under the same PSN account? Basically, can your PSN account and purchases be linked to at least one of each PSN-accesible device at the same time?
Also, is there any word on whether or not something like this will be possible for the PS4?
Thanks a million.
A Playstation console must be "activated" for game content under a PSN account, in order for games or add-ons purchased by that PSN account to be downloaded to it. You can activate two consoles of each platform (PS3, PSP, PS Vita), at a time for game content. If you want to activate a different console, and you already have two activated, then you have to "deactivate" one of the current ones. When the console is deactivated under a PSN account, any content downloaded to it by that account will no longer work.
