    PS3/Xbox 360 Question

    A guy that I work with was saying that his friend who has bought loads of games from the Playstation network gave him his log in code, so that he could use it to sign into his PS3 and he can now DL everything the guy has bought onto his console, Is this true?? and could it be done on a Xbox360 because I'm sure my brother said that when you DL from market place the games are coded to that machine/harddrive, Any ideas??

    Yes for PS3 because i think you are allowed to download each game purchased 5 times. Don't have a clue about xbox, sorry

    No it won't work for 360 the game downloaded would only work on the console it was downloaded on.unless the download lisence was transfered to a new console but then I wouldn't work on any other or the gamertag it was used to download with was signed in to xbox live.

    Me and my brother download things onto each other console to avoid this because we are always on xbox live.so my download could he used on his console by him becase it was downloaded on his console.an be used by me on my console when I'm on xbox live

    I'm not sure i'm following you because your first statement says it won't work but you second statement says it does??

    Correct me if i'm wrong- If you sign into Xbox live on your brothers console using your gamer ID and DL a game to his HDD, Then when you go back to your own console and sign onto xbox live you can also play that game because it was DL'd under your gamer ID??

    If this is what your saying it's what my work mate is doing on his PS3 and what I was talking about.

    also the download is assigned to the console id it was downloaded (anyone on that console could play it) aswell as the gamertag any console that it on connected to live as it is on their download history.

    but wouldnt work for stuff already downloaded (thats what i meant by it wouldnt work) hope that helps

    sorry for confusion
