Updated Sony Policy Allows Activating PSN On Up To Three Portable Devices

By Eugene . November 26, 2013 . 2:30pm


Sony have updated their policies and will allow players to activate up to three portable devices with their PlayStation Network account. This change will primarily affect new games (Which are counted as post November 17, 2011) that are still running on your Vita or PlayStation 3, bumping up the number of devices such games can be on from two to three.


This change doesn’t affect the PlayStation 4 directly, but does mean that streaming stuff from it to your Vita or swapping from Vita to Vita TV is made a little bit easier.
