This is probably the best thread to ask the question in.

I know that you can share an account with up to 5 PS3s, but lets say that somebody decides to go in for lots of game-sharing. Is there a limit to the amount of logins that the PS3 will take before giving them any problems? I ask, because I'm going to probably partake in lots of future game shares, and it's a concern, albeit a small one.

I just bought Rockband and would like to steal some extra DLC from people.

The only thing I can share with you is Pixeljunk monsters, and most of you guys already have that, but if anybody wants to do a goon a favor, I'd love some free DLC.

I'll jump in for the PJM expo. Gimme a few to look into novastrike, depending on what it is, I might join you for that, too.

This is like a loving addiction.

EDIT: Yeah, count me in for Novastrike, too.

Basically, me too. How much would it be for PJM+, and how much extra for Novastrike? It's a topdown shooter, so similar to 1942, I guess? Which is fine by me, if it's not too much extra.

Nice. It's $6 for the PJM expansion and $10 for Novastrike. I'll go ahead and buy these tonight and hand out the info. So far we've got:

Yodzilla
dongsweep
Vegastar
Shmoogy

So it'll be about $3.75 each if there's five of us and $4.50 each if there's four. And if anyone really cares that much about $0.75 well drat. If any of you guys want to get the ball rolling you can send some money to choopes at gmail dot com so I can send you the download info ASAP.

e: ASAP = when i get back from work

The money has been sent!

You have sent $4.50 USD to choopes@gmail.com.

If GT5 Prologue is shareable, I would be interested in that. Oh god, loving game sharing is going to eat up so much of my money.

Also, who else has a group for PJE for Thursday? I'd be up for tossing in 2-3$ to get it.

For 13-15$ you can buy Siren, 1942, and PixelJunk Eden (when it comes out) if you can find 4 others to share the price with. It's pretty loving awesome considering Siren is 40$, PJE and 1942 are both 10$.

Can't wait till Thursday . The demo for this game is awesome.

I'm going to have to drop. I'm sorry, but it's still really early, you'll have no problems getting a replacment. I'd rather not use another profile slot if I don't have to. Plus, I'm in for Bionic Commando.

I've got both of those but if the rest of you want to split them that's OK. Is there anything that no one in our group has that they might be interested in for real cheap? Something like Elefunk or PixelJunk Racers or High Velocity Bowling or Super Puzzle Fighter?

I'm actually set for a while, probably until Fat Princess comes out.

Guys I don't really "get" Siren so far. You start in a pitchblack shack and it says "run to the house". What house? I ran a random direction and hit an invisible wall.

I got stuck there too. On the road, there is a very hard to see path. There is a small light that you follow. It's not on the side where the police car is, it's like halfway between the shed and the pit of darkness.

I've already received your money, mcmaken6, so no worries there. The paypal fee is $0.37 so $2.37 would be preferred from everyone, though I won't really whine over a few lost cents.

My paypal-linked email is diminishedangel@yahoo.com.

I already said a few days ago I was dropping out of your group to retain with my other group. I'd rather stick with an account that already exists on my PS3 than use one of my 16 reserved slots. I thought you had already removed me. :-(

I'll send you the $ Yod later, 2.37 (what ppcalc said) so you'll grab 2$ after fees.

It's 9 gigs, I'm playing my way through very slowly. I only have the first 6 episodes downloaded so far, because I ran out of storage :-(.

Looking forward to playing new games. I still haven't even played Novastrike. I'm also getting Shiki-tei and Um Jammer Lammy or whatever it's called from the Jap psn store once I get the clear through to send payment. I love this thread.

To those in my Eden/BC group: Yod said something about going to Mexico to get some antibiotics on the down low, but he promised to still buy Eden.

Despite what he says, I think he's going to use that $16 on the antibiotics.

I'm interested in The Last Guy, but not all that much in the Warhawk expansions. How much is it for the expansions? I might buy Warhawk some day, and I'd rather have them now cheaply, if the price is good enough.

No Wipeout this week, right? I haven't been following

Yodzilla posted:

Yeah Dan's already sent his $2.50 for The Last Guy. Da rest of you bums can send your bucks in too.

As for Warhawk, it appears that the expansions are sharable? I already have the first one but since they're $8 each and there's a pack of all three coming out for $16 I might bite the bullet and buy that using our share account. If anyone else wants in on those you can send your share of the money my way as usual ($3.60). I mean, just look how awesome this is going to be!

Unless of course someone comes up with cold hard evidence that says we can't share this stuff. From what I can see we can as long as you have the password for the purchasing account saved on your machine.

I'll send 6$ or whatever later on when I get back from class. I don't really feel comfortable attempting to paypal on my iphone through the Edge network.

I completely see your point, and I'm not arguing that anyone saying "don't share" is wrong. But, I wouldn't be getting the game otherwise and I'm sure I'm not alone. Games I really wanted I bought at full price, including the PJM games, Bionic Commando and Warhawk and its 3 expansions. It's not a money issue, I just don't feel my $20 should go towards a game that I'm not sure of, and there happens to be an interest in going in with a few people to get it for less.

I agree, I have spent quite a bit on the PSN, but nearly all through gameshares.

I honestly believe I would have only like, PJM, Fat Princess, and maybe a few others had game-shares not been an option. I buy pretty much every decent game now, and as a result of that. I don't feel like I'm cheating the developers. I just don't have a job during the school year, so it's either they get 0$ from me, or 2-5$ from me. I wouldn't buy Wipeout for 20$, but for 4$, it's an obvious buy for me. I don't enjoy the type of game, but I figure, for 4$ if I play it for just a few hours, it was worth the purchase.

This thread isn't about whether or not you agree with game-sharing, it's to organize them, so we should stop de-railing the thread.

As of right now the share system is still intact. Nothing has changed in that regard. It just seems like Sony is starting to cover their bases in case they decided to start cracking down on it (with the stuff about not giving out your details and whatnot). The 6 sub-account thing doesn't have anything to do with that I don't think. That's just for setting up sub-accounts on the same system.

Unless Fremry meant that a game could be downloaded on up to 6 different machines now. But that's different from the sub-accounts.

I'm going to assume he meant that you can share with 6 total instead of the previous 5. You can have like 16 or 20 or something accounts total on one machine. I might be completely wrong, though.

If they change it so shares no longer work, or the ones I've previously bought, I'm going to be fairly upset. If old ones no longer work, I will be upset, but if they just make it not work in the future, I'm going to severely limit what I buy.

I buy so many things that I'm not very interested in, or that I only play for an hour or two because my group wants it. For 3-5$ it's not a big deal, and it's cheaper entertainment per hour than anything aside from an MMO subscription. Oh well, heres to hoping they don't change it. It's just to cover their asses incase someone game shares, forgets to remove their credit card info, and gets like 200$ stolen from their CC.
