Re: Why You Should NOT Game Share

Mar 20, 2013
Its like this boy : in foreign countrys :theres no chance to pay 60 bucks for a game. Instead people took their play and brought it to jailbreaking. Now: theres other way: buy a game and resell it like a only chance for 3 or 5 persons. With differents accounts. If a game costs 60, you can ask 30 to every single guy and earn a lot more than you invest in it. And thats how the World goes. God put a smile upon your face? Yeahp!

I certainly think gamesharing is not bad, Sony gives you two licenses for each purchase you make. So you have the right to download that content wherever you want to. Besides Sony supports this anyways, well at least Jack Tretton does.

So you would freely give your account information to a complete stranger so they can download your games, and you wouldn't be upset if they then changed your account email and password and bought a few other games to play on your credit card?  And then they took it a step further and logged on to the SEN website and deactivated your PS3 so they could share your account with another complete stranger?


I have gameshared in the past with 4 ppl with no problems and they have gameshared with me, so its mutual. Also who links their cc to their SEN account??? I buy PS cards at Target or Walmart instead. I quickly change my password after they where done downloading my stuff, so they can't access my account anymore. Right now I'm not gamesharing, but I would gladly do it again if I was presented with the right content. Smiley Happy 


It's on you if you gameshare again, cross12095. Don't expect to see this error in front of you next time you turn your PS3 on.psn_error-0x8002A227-.jpg

I've ran into a predicent myself. I live with my brother roght now but I go back and forth to my moms and my dads. Each place has a ps3 (that's 3 systems) I saved up my money from my summer bAbysitting job to buy COD blackops2 and the season pass. I have "game shared" on my system at my dads but can't on my moms. So, do I have to buy another season pass for her system even though its my system?

Game sharing is also legally considered a form of piracy. Piracy is now a felony, and who in their right mind wants a criminal record

No offense I think Activsion has plenty of money lol. They only managed to continously break sales records game after game so yeah they pisss 60 dollars. As far as game sharing in general I personally think it's a bad idea and many should prob refrain from doing it.

im always deleting people asking me to gameshare with them... im pretty stingy when it comes to things i bought anyways... when you dump thousands into your account on games /DLC you should think twice before sharing that thousands with some random stranger

You keep mentioning some hypothetical "stranger" that you'd gameshare with. I don't know about you, but I don't think anyone in their right mind would gameshare with a complete stranger. Most people who gameshare are friends.

 

And if you're so worried about them stealing your information, just log out of your account when their done downloading it!

 

I actually had a friend gameshare with me (before I knew what that was). He has Final Fantasy 7 on his PS3, and he said he could get it for me too. He logged into his account on my PS3, download it, then logged out. It's not like I could steal "millions" of dollars even if I wanted.

 

I agree with everyone that says it cheats a company and it's stealing in one way or another. However, Sony gives you the ability to download a game to another system, and if you want to give the extra to your friend, then we should have that right.

I think the biggest concern is whether or not you abuse it.
