I've shared games with all my PS3 buddies and they have done so with me.
Ok, so on the second PS3, I create a new user, but use the exact same information as my existing account on the first PS3? Same user name and password? For example, let's say my user name was AVSforumguy1 and my password was videophile. I setup an account on the second PS3 with the user name AVSforumguy1 and the password videophile? And I can do this on 4 additional PS3 systems other than my first PS3 system?
So basically, you log in with that user name, on the second PS3, you check the account info, and look at the download history list, and just download it again, and then once you've done that, the game is playable across all users on that PS3? So if my buddy down the street has a PS3, and he's already downloaded Calling all Cars, I can create a new user with his info, and put Calling all Cars on my PS3, and once I've downloaded it, I can play it with my "own" user name? Wow, that's really cool. I'm not sure Sony wants people to share games like that, but it definitely makes things much more interesting. Would this even work with prime time downloads like Warhawk?
I would think you would have to have any of the PS3's serial numbers registered in your name to be able to do that.
