What are the terms and conditions of the ps3 stores?

Asked by Markos (73points) June 3rd, 2008 from iPhone

I mean when I buy a game can I install it in my friends and family ps3? Also, if decided to change the hdd or delete it or something, can I redownload the game?

I did google it but didn’t find the answer.

I dont think you can install the games on a bunch of different ps3’s if that’s what you mean.

I’m pretty sure you can download them again.

I’d be real pissed if god forbid something happened to the HD on my PS3 and I couldn’t redownload Prologue from the store.

I’m sure you can download it again, just not onto a different ps3 (a friends).

Might I add, what’s stopping you from transfering the game from the system?

I don’t see why I can’t transfer Prologue to another PS3, since I bought it already.

it isn’t in the manual, at least I didn’t see it. I looked on the ps homepage….. Apparently you can redownload anytime, for free, of course. But I read that on a forum, nothing official. And what about transfering to other ps3? It must be like iTunes and have a maximum of systems and requires your login info?

Content purchased from the PLAYSTATION Store can be accessed from different PLAYSTATION 3 systems (such as your friend’s PLAYSTATION 3) using the PLAYSTATION®Network account that purchased the content. Just log-in to your PLAYSTATION Network account from the other PLAYSTATION 3 system.

You can associate your PLAYSTATION Network account with up to five other PLAYSTATION 3 systems.

To access your PLAYSTATION Network account from a different PLAYSTATION 3:

Create a new local User Account on the other PLAYSTATION 3 system. ( (Users) > [Create New User])

Go to (Friends) and select [Sign Up for the PLAYSTATION®Network].

When the screen prompts you “Do you want to create a new account?”, select “No, I will use an existing account.”

Follow the on-screen instructions to associate your PLAYSTATION Network account with the new (i.e., your friend’s) PLAYSTATION 3 system. Once this step is complete, it will bring you back the XMB™ home menu where you will be able to access your PLAYSTATION Store content at your convenience.
