Getting started, it is highly reccomended to find a Group

Post in this thread saying what you would like to purchase. Whether you want to get 5 people to buy a single game or map pack, or the entire PSN collection.

If your gamesharing group is meant for multiple transactions, one of your members should look into making a social group here on CAG.

To do this, go to the social group page, scroll down to the bottom, and click create group. Name it something like "CAG Gameshare Group __", and make it invite only. Then after you've done that, scroll to the bottom to invite your friends. This solve our communication problems between groups

ALSO - You can search this topic for games to see what other people have or want, and try and PM them and get something together.

A CAG Gamesharing FAQ

Q: How does gamesharing work?

A: It's simple. Once you buy a game, that game is tied to your PSN ID. Basically all you do is give someone your account info, and they click "download again." Both players will have the game, but remember, don't delete the account from your PSN, or the downloaded game will be gone!


Q: All right, seems easy enough, but how does this group thing work, and whats the point?

A: Basically, take the original idea, and add a few people into the mix. Each person logs on to the account, adds their credit card info, and buys the game(s) the group has agreed on. This is helpful to us, because prior to contorary belief, Sony limits us to gamesharing with 5 PEOPLE, not 5 shares per game. The whole group thing meets that requirement. Not to mention, having a single account for 5 people where you add and remove your credit card information is a LOT safer than just giving your account information to some random guy.


Q: This whole gamesharing thing sounds sketchy to me. Is it legit?

A: From CheapyD, the man himself:

Approved by Jack Tretton, President and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment of America
http://www.wired.com...s/2006/10/71982

Sony announced that players who download games from PlayStation's online shop can share them on up to five other PS3 machines.

If a player logs into his PlayStation 3 account on a friend's system, he can download any game he has already purchased. "You can send that content to four other friends for that initial investment," said Tretton. "We want to get the game in as many hands as possible." "It's not about generating profits at each and every interaction with the consumer," he said. "I think that really offsets the argument that says, 'Wow, that's a really pricey system.'"


Q: Feedback should be left for this transaction, right?

A: No. Per Trading/Feedback rules and guidelines in the trading forum:

Trading on CAG is "at your own risk". However, there are some special cases where feedback is not allowed and engaging in this specific trading activity warrants a special warning. Onto the list :

Playstation 3 gamesharing. You are opening up your account to trouble here. You know the risks.


Not sure what else I should add to this FAQ. Post or PM if you think of anything I should add. Happy sharing!

I'd be interested, depending on what games they are. Might be worth everyone putting down what they're interested in getting out of the 5 in the thread.

I'm interested. It doesn't bother me if one or two of the games are ones I already have since it will be very hard to pick 5 games that none of the 5 people have.

I have a question for groups like these. If everyone downloads Tekken DR online, can everyone play it online at the same time after switching to their usual account?

I could be wrong, but I think Warhawk is the only one with a restriction.

Yeah i am unsure how it would work, My assumption is this. We each would buy a game and then remove our personal info, log off and let the next person log in and buy a game. Eventually we would all be able to share the games.

I am up for whatever the problem comes again down to how are we going to decide what games are favorable or not.

that might be a good idea, though we could just start with PAIN and see how the rest pan out. Also, I'd still be interested in sharing some of the games that sb still has though that might be better for a diff group? Not sure.

I already have Pain. I would agree that it may just be best to wait for Echochrome, etc; Unless you guys want to get some PS1 games because it doesn't seem like any of us have many of those.

I already have Pain, Everyday Shooter, PixelJunk Monsters, FlOw, Jumping Flash, Medievil, and Metal Arms.
