    Single PSN account (& games) one more than one PS3?

    Hi folks,

    I'm thinking of buying an old PS3 with a faulty blu-ray drive for the bedroom to use for streaming/iplayer & PSN games such as Blue Toad Murder Files that don't need a disc.

    My question is can I download (for free) games again on a 2nd PS3 using the same PSN ID to acheive this or would I have to pay for them again?

    Cheers folks!

    Rob

    You can download them again, I think the only limitation is you can't be signed in on more than one ps3 at a time.

    Upto a limit of 5 PS3's IIRC. However, some stuff will NOT redownload; Singstar tracks are the one that springs to mind; they end up being locked to a single PS3.

    Games can only be downloaded to 5 different machines before you got to pay for them again at the rental store xD
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    You can probably get a better deal, but thought I'd let you know.
