    This wont be important for everyone, or it might be more important than you think.

    Previously when you wanted to deactivate a games console from PSN, you needed to do it via the console itself, now this was not possible, if you have a Jailbroken console as you wont be able to connect to PSN, or if your console is broke, or if you have game shared with someone, you cant very well go to their house and deactivate their console from your account.

    This situation with accounts, became even more problematic, when Sony dropped the allowed PSN account slots/shares that one is allowed, from five to two, previously, the only way to get all consoles/slots cleared was to ring Sony, but since they dropped the amount of slots, they now allow you to do it via your computer, here is how, thanks to a video tutorial by HolmesInFive.

    First go to this link and sign in, then follow the video tutorial:

    Again to clarify why this might be important to you, as Sony changed the amount of shareable slots on a PSN account from five to two.

    • Your console is broken, so you obviously cant connect to PSN to deactivate.
    • You have a Jailbroken console, so cant connect to PSN to deactivate.
    • You remained on firmware 3.15 to keep the OtherOS function, Sony has barred your access to PSN.
    • You have game shared and the other people wont deactivate, also helps with those scammed through game sharing.
    • You are getting a Vita and want to deactivate a slot, but cant do because of one of the above.
    • You want to deactivate all consoles at once.

      I have 2 jb PS3 and I don't Care about PSN . Why should I ? I only use the ps3 to play local games !(And I'm sure there are lots of people doing that)

      People shouldn't be so ignorant when making an account and buying stuff.
      Sooner or later the change TOS and there we go ...

      I just wanted to note that everything you bought BEFORE Jan 15 (i think that was the date) still works on the five activated system, anything after that is only 2. So if you are like me and still have more than 2 systems all your older stuff can still be put on more than 2 systems.

      Who cares, you copy and pasted some one else's work, where this guy actually made a video to help people, so go cry somewhere else.

      The new thread was better.
      The new thread was more relevant.
      The new article was front paged by me because it was more relevant and superior than some crappy copy and paste.
      No point in having two of the same thread.

      Seriously, this guy has nothing better to do than troll forums.

      Now grow the hell up, its nothing personal, its only a damn thread.

      I really should have ignored you when you begged for your account back, if i had left you banned, i wouldn't be having to explain myself to a troll.
