1 Game Purchase on Multiple PSP's

#1 Posted by MAST (726 posts) -

I was just wondering what the policy was on buying a PSP game on the Playstation Network, and then putting it on multiple PSP's? I plan on borrowing a friends PSP, just to see if it's anything I'm interested in, and I'll probably buy some downloadable games for it. If I then choose to buy a PSP for myself, I don't want to have to repurchase those same games again.
 
Is it set up similar to how you can download one PS3 game on up to 5 systems?

If you buy the game on your own PSN account then the game is tied to the account, not the PSP. Now the you'll have to tie that particular PSP to the PSN account you're using, which is done pretty easily through the Account Management menu option.

You can do it. My first PSP I wound up selling, I left 2 psn psone classics on. I just recently picked up another PSP and downloaded the same games from my PS3 back onto my new PSP.

Technically if you buy a game with your PSN account, then go on a diff PSP and sign in on your same PSN account you can download your games to that new PSP...
 
But the new PSP doesn't have to be yours ;)

Wrong that was an error. The Limit is 5 PSP's and 5 PS3's. So you can borrow that PSP try it out and then de activate that PSP and you can activate it about 5 times more.
