Sony To Introduce New Policy On Game Content

Sony PSP PS Vita Playstation 3 News

Sony is going through a policy change on November 18 in terms of their game content on the Playstation Network. From that day onwards, any content that is purchased on November 18 or beyond, it can only be played on two activated Playstation 3 consoles rather than the current policy of five. The same policy will apply to the Playstation Portable. It is only time affected, so content purchased before Nov. 18 is still allowed to be played on five PS3s and five PSPs.

There is a way to deactivate the system, but it is only on the console. So, if one of your consoles has died, Sony will be providing a deactivation solution over the PC. It will be “a new PlayStation Network account management website where users will be able to deactivate particular devices attached to their PlayStation Network account”, according to the Playstation Blog.

It has received a mixed reaction from the gaming community to say the least. I do not have a reaction on either side of the fence since I only own one PS3 and one PSP. It will also affect the Playstation Vita when it is released next year (or this year in Asia).

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
