    Question about DLC for PS3 in general

    Post by DoughGuy on Thu Aug 30, 2012 6:35 am

    You can make multiple profiles on a PS3, and you can give each its own PSN account. Now I know it seems obvious but I just want to make 100% sure, if you buy a DLC over PSN is it only the one account that gains access to it or all profiles on the PS3? I currently have 2 and I want to know if I have to buy the DkS DLC on my main or if both will get it.

    Won't really help you... But for Xbox if you buy it on one account all the other accounts on the xbox also get permission to use the DLC, however only whilst they stay on the same HDD as the original purchaser.

    I think it should dough, i made a different account and all the games i bought off psn(ps1 classics ext) was still able to be accessed on that account. I assume DLC is the same.

    Just to confirm for you i know for certain it will. I have several accounts on my ps3. My main is a plus account, and any game i get i can play on a alt.

    To assure you for certain though. I bought a mappack for the call of duty black ops, which is the same as dlc really, and i have used it on 3 accounts on the same ps3. No additional download or reinstalling. The dlc will be saved to your ps3's HDD (its own internal memory kinda) so any account on that ps3 will have instant access to it.

    Just like passive said. Only thing I feel I can add is just make sure that the account that purchased the dlc doesn't get deleted. If that happens, even though the dlc is still present on the system, it becomes locked.

    Providing the account that purchased the DLC remains on your PlayStation
    all other accounts will be able to use it. happy

    I think it's available for every PSN accocunt, since its downloaded to your PS3.
    Based on that is that I plan to get the DLC, cause I can't dowload it from my current account

    As far as I know, you can download any purchased content (unless stated otherwise) in 5 different accounts. And you can only use it in 2 different PS3 (so those 5 accounts must be in those 2 PS3s).
