oh sony

UK gamers can no longer play the same copy of a new PlayStation Store game on more than two devices.

On 18 November Sony cut the number of consoles and handheld devices that users can tie to their PlayStation Network (PSN) account from five to two.

The change only applies to games and other content bought via the PlayStation Store after 18 November.

The limits are believed to have been imposed to stop people sharing games with friends.

Well, at least it only applies to newly-bought content, but really... Is clamping down on legal sharing which only a small number of people were fully taking advantage of (and probably quite enjoying) the best way to go about drumming up business rather than negative feelings?
