DLC Question

#1 Posted by sthusby (383 posts) -

Hi guys!
 
Now this is probably gonna sound like a stupid question. I know that because I thought it sounded like a stupid question when a friend of mine asked me.
 
Okay, so here's the deal. My friend asked me if I could give him the First Strike DLC Pack by letting him log onto my user on his PS3 and then download the DLC. I told him that it wouldn't work because then he would have to be on my user to play the maps. However, he insited that some people he knew had done this and it had worked out.
 
I really don't think it's possible for two reasons.
1. It's Acitivison, come on!
2. If this was true, everyone would just pirate the pack, leaving poor Activision with no profit.
 
I can't even begin to think that Activision would make a mistake like this, and as I said, this is a stupid ass question. Still, I would appriciate your input.
 
Thanks!

it works, alright. my friend has the World at War zombie maps for Black Ops from his friend through DLC sharing, so i'd assume it'll be the same for First Strike.

Yeah DLC sharing works for first strike also.

Why not just buy him a PSN Store gift card?

Why? Seems he could get it for free.

Yep, the catch is, you'll have to let him keep your account on his PS3. As soon as your account is deleted off his PS3, all the DLC related to your account is deleted off his PS3 as well.

@sthusby:
 I'm confused. Are you purchasing it for him, or is it already purchased and you're just DLing it on his machine?

The bros that play call of duty wouldn't be able to figure out how to do this.

yes, you can share DLC with people on ps3. it only works up to 5 ps3 systems. if it goes over 5 then none of you can play the dlc. you have to call up sony and tell them to delete all of the systems that your profile is on.
