PS3/PSN question. I am think about replacing my dodgy PS3 with a new one (not the new extra slim), what's the go with activated PS3s?

my account says there is 5, and I can only think it was back when I played blops and shared a map pack with homer Missy, Kayls and someone else. What happens if I deactivate those other PS3s?

They will lose access to the map pack, if you upgrade you will not get an option though as it won't let you activate any more than two now even though old shares can still be shared five times, you will need to de-activate them to activate your new one.

The PS3 that I used when we shared Sgt is gone. So no issues from my end.

Hmm, pretty sure no one plays blops1 any more.

thanks homer. I think CAD might have been the other person.

Kayls..do you still play blops1? if not, are you happy for me to deactivate your PS3?

Just noticed the 12GB on my new super slim is almost gone.  Guess it is off to JB to buy a drive cradle ($12) and then decide what to put into it.

Another plus for XBox.. oops,did I say that out loud?

And yeah, I think you are right.. wonder what that will do to my saves on that system.  I will make sure they are in the cloud.

Sarge is correct. When you add a new HDD the 12gb vanishes. It'a a mystery! From what I noticed the 12gb drive is no faster so I don't see the point of it.

Ahh yes but the console is almost unusable with just the 4gb drive. If you want HD graphics on BF3 for example the 4gb drive won't allow it. PS3 will but doesn't need to because of the blu-ray.  8)

Are we going to need a Sony XBox trolling thread?  I am still coming to grips with what XBox Live gives you other than paying to play online and crippling some of the functionality of the XBox without it (sucks), but I have to say they do some stuff well as well.  And yeah 4GB is just so you can spread the payments across system and hard drive... dont see the point in it myself.

12GB is not much better on the PS3 though.  I have almost nothing installed, one downloaded game and the damn thing has 1.2GB free.  Think I will grab a 120GB SSD next time I see one at a reasonable price and chuck that in (or buy a 240GB for this system and swap).

I have 240GB in my PS3 now and it's almost full. I'll be upgrading to 750GB or 1TB shortly.

This doesn't worry me too much as I'm buying more and more content from the PSN as I go and I don't trade games.

mmmm this is a curious one? Unless Sony make it clear you never own the product I don't know how they can do this? It's like saying you are renting the product from them and can never on sell it. Not sure how each countries consumer laws will deal with it but it will be interesting.

I'm the same as Aro. I've traded about 3 games over PS1, 2 and 3 so I couldn't care. Although I sometimes buy pre-owned games which are hard to find.

surely they'll add something to download from PSN like the online pass to make the game transferrable (but they'll make it more expensive so they get a bigger cut, since that's what it's all about)

I think the same thing Sarge, I like the comments on the article...... so many saying they'll jump ship to MS and Nintendo but they don't realise that all of the companies will have similar deals.
