Mmm, I thought the deactivate all was a "one time only". Well, once a year is better than that hahaha.

i just deactivated all systems and it kept all of the games on the system that i wanted to keep the games on so it was not really an inconvenience. i cant figure out how to reactivate it i suspect this time next week i will have to reactivate my system but so far no waiting for long downloads or anything. the only downfall i can see is that i wont be able to download anything from the store next tuesday when it comes out so i would recommend doing this after picking new stuff out on tuesday afternoon that way you can reactivate and start downloading when all the new stuff comes out the following tuesday.

Sometime in the year 2011 they ditched the 5 activations and reduced that to 2. It may be because of this that you may not be able to activate more than 2. That said, for titles bought prior to this change, you SHOULD be able to activate on up to 5. Please let us know if anything you bought before november 2011 works on a 3rd ps3!

curious if anyone has tried the online de-activation action that de-activates all the ps3's and then see if it allows you to reactivate the 5 you used before hand up to the point they limited it to 2, so any games after that point would only allow for 2 activates?

You can't. If you deactivate all, it will limit you to only two activations as per the new terms.

Hmmm... Now that you mention it, I remember seeing something about this, when the activation count got down to 2. Oh well....

It's not '2' accounts total, it's 2 consoles and 2 handhelds. I have mine and a friends PS3 activated and both mine and my brothers PSP activated. wink

Weird I thought it would be one Vita, one PSP seeing how accounts are locked to those handhelds.

again, i'm curious about games purchases during the limit of 5, and if all are deactivated, if reactivating them will be allowed for purchases prior to the 2 limit for ps3, that's all.

Sony raised the limit to 3 portable systems in Japan for the arrival of the Vita TV!
It might happen here also if we that device is released here !

What I want to know is if the PS4 has the same 2 system limit, of if they got greedy and it's only 1.
