You can't, not without a lot of hacking. If you have 5 PS3's with that game already on each, use of them. If this game is being cirulated among your friends, quit being cheap and buy your own copy, then you can play it as much as you like on the PS3 you actually have access to all the time. If this is a game you bought, then you should be having this problem.

My ps3 wont activate.


You may have to deactivate the old PS3 system before activating a new one. If you no longer have the old one or if it is not functional you will have to contact Sony customer Service.

How to deactivate a ps3 sistem


Unfortunately, after the firmware version 3.01 PSN limited the activated accounts to only 3 systems. That sucks i know, but they are trying to discourage hackers, and that is the only reason they did it. I never heard of activating one without deactivating the other. But you should be able to go to PSN customer support and let them know, and sometimes they can help. Does your old system freeze on that screen when you first turn it on? You can do a manual update from a usb memory card with the firmware downloaded from PSN. I hope this helps. Good luck.

I have a PSP Go. whenever i try to open a game it tells me to activate system 8010850F. how do i activate it?


Found a possible solution on some other forums

For games the "to use this content, you must activate the system (8010850F)" message can be removed, and access to your downloaded content allowed, by either

1. signing in to PSN on your PSP then selecting account management > activate/ deactivate > games

or

2. connecting the PSP to your PS3 bia USB and signing in then selecting account management > activate/ deactivate > psp > games



I got it from this thread http://community.eu.playstation.com/t5/Technical-Support-Help-Advice/PSP-quot-to-use-this-content-you-must-activate-the-system/m-p/9991383

My son turned his PS3 off during a system update and now everything he tries to play won't let him and says error code 8003051e. What do I do to fix this problem?


Ok what I recommend doing is these steps and you should be gaming again:
1. Start Ps3 and in the title menu to Account Management. 2. Click Account Management. 3. Go to System Activation. 4. DO Ps3 System NOT "Psp System". 5. Choose game then select deactivate ps3. (Why? so that way you can log in as your profile later.) 6. Once done go to System Settings. 7. Go down until you see Restore PS3 System. 8. Click it and select yes. (Once you say yes it will restore your ps3 to factory settings, It will take either 2 hours - 8 Hours. Depending on how much memory it has built in.) 9. Once done Download newest updates and let it download. 10. Once complete you should be playing video games in no time. Have Fun Gaming.

Everything but my ps3s will connect to my router. i have 2 lap tops and an xbox that connect but none of the 3 ps3s will connect


Make sure your wireless access point is in infrastructure mode. (Not AdHoc, computer to computer)
If you are attempting to use a cell phone as an access point, such as with WMWifiRouter, the PS3 will refuse to connect to it.

How do i deactivate another ps3 i have 5 ps3 activated


Assuming you still have access to the PS3 you want to deactivate, go to account and there will be a menu option to deactivate the unit. It only takes a second or two.

Deativate ps3


You can only have one ps3 activated for video at a time. use one console and download all your videos on it. dont switch back and forth. you'll start getting drm issues and it'll just be a pain in teh ***. or just create a new psn account on the other console and activate it for video. you can only donwload your movies once anyway.
