PS3 login

Post by NickLoTurco10 » Wed May 29, 2019 6:05 pm

Hi guys. Stupid question coming up.

So.... I'm thinking about buying a PS3 again. I had loads of games that I bought off PSN, Outrun, Super Stardust, Pinball Dreams etc. Will I be able to login, download and play these games again if I buy another console?

Yes. PSN games are tied to a user account, not a console.

Thanks for the reply. I know it's the account they're linked to, I just wanted to know if the games would still be available to download from psn, given that the PS3 is virtually defunct?

I've never had any problems with re-downloading games from PSN. You can even download title that have been removed from purchase if you already 'own' them.

That's, great, thanks. The one I'm looking at is 40gb, would that be enough for the 10 games or so that I own from psn do you think? I know you don't know the size of the games, just trying to gauge if I should get it or not! 😊

I've got a 40gb phat model, it's really easy to chuck a bigger HDD in if it's not big enough (1TB in mine).
