Sony to get stricter on PSN game sharing

We are all aware of Sony’s lenient game sharing policy, whereby a digitally downloaded game can be accessed by five different systems. Unlike the Xbox 360, a PS3 user does not have to be signed in with the lead profile to play downloaded games. However, Sony is changing this policy by limiting the digital content to only two activated systems. This new policy will come into effect on November 18, 2011.

This policy covers PSP games as well, so game content downloaded for the PSP will also be limited to two systems. However, this restriction solely applies to gaming content; any video content purchased from PSN can be only moved to a single PS3 and a maximum of three PSPs.
