Nothing to do with this article.
But did Sony do this on purpose or something.

The day people are writing articles celebrating the 5th birthday, and when everyone is kind of hoping for some new features/some new content or some surprise, they instead gave us a maintenance and made game-sharing a little less useful, which fair enough was being abused, and personally it doesn't really bother me, but i keep asking myself why choose to do it today of all days!

Pretty stupid IMO.

got to agree, it does seem like the worst time to do this... unless we get a nice surprise when it goes back up

Its kinda funny, I've had the ability to gameshare with 5 other people for five years and I never got the chance to exploit it.

Me and my friends could have pitched in $12 each and got AC: Revelations on the cheap :/

@hasj1990- Yeah pretty dumb. Sony's punishing their most LOYAL PS3 fanbase...multiple PS3 owners.

The only ones punished are the ones with MORE than two systems. Which aren't many.

And honestly, this new downgrade is to keep people from doing what you just said, exploiting. And lord knows people have done that in droves. I can't tell you the amount of begging and sharing with total stranger that Ive seen gone on

And personally, why would a person have more than 2 anyway. In most cases, most people need only one. Mind you, I myself have two

when was the last time psn got a major update? are they goona do it or just wait for the ps4?

RAM limitations are probably a factor at this point, I'm sure they have tweaks they can make to various aspects of the service but I think Vita is going to be a testing ground for features on PS4.

Slowly but Surely .... just fine by me.

Congrats to Sony and the PS3DF!
