Sony is clamping down on PSN game sharing by limiting the number of devices that can be activated on one PlayStation Network account for game content purchased from the PlayStation Store.
For game content purchased after November 18, 2011, a new policy will apply:
PS3: Users will be able to play the game on up to 2 activated PS3 systems.
PSP: Users will be able to play the game on up to 2 activated PSP systems.
The update will not affect game content purchased before November 18.
PlayStation Network users are able to change the activation setting through each device, and Sony plans to offer a new PlayStation Network account management website where users will be able to deactivate particular devices attached to their PlayStation Network account via their PC.
Currently up to five devices can be activated on a PSN account, meaning it had become fairly commonplace to share a single PSN purchase across five consoles owned by different gamers. The new policy will understandably aggravate those making use of the loophole, but should please content creators hoping for a greater return on their products
