    Where you lend someone your account so they can download some stuff that account has purchased.
    Your allowed to do it with 5 other consoles.

    Do you mean 5 games, or that you can share each game five times? My understanding was you couldnt share with 6, you got a message saying "please delete gme from one or more accounts and try again"

    I'm sharing about 7 games with my brother, am I at risk? It just saves me the hassle of taking my ps3 round his house, and seeing as they "allow" 5 DLs I can't see the problem, would be very annoyed it I got a permanent PSN ban for it.

    Is it the same message as this one on youtube (for sexual harassment)

    Is it a ban from online and PSN shop and updates?

    That thread implies bans are for being very naughty @ "home" (sony's virtual world) or behaving badly online in some way. And a permanant ban for the console seems very hard considering there might be 5 or more useers of that console

    I mean 5 different separate consoles.
    I've heard if you ring them up and ask them to de-authorise the other accounts your unbanned.
    He told me he got a message explaining about the game sharing and that he did share games with his friends.

    I'll ring sony now mate.

    Curious as to why they would ban for this as they explicity allow sharing. Try deleting the game from one or more accounts - if he is sharing online with strangers I guess he could be storing up problems for himself, ie people have shared his details unbeknownst to him

    Any chance of a cut and paste of the message??

    I've heard of it before.

    I think its more of the authorising that PS3 with that account than having the games on there (they even ask you to de-authorise when your format your PS3).

    Can't do nowhere near the PS3 at the moment but will try!

    did you try it out at your house, microsoft just ban ip addresses sometimes
