Original thread is here

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.

------------------

How to Host a Gameshare Group(Thanks to Bastiartadi and fatboyjam for putting this together)
1) Create a dummy email account

2) Create a dummy PSN account

PRO TIP:
Put your address to Portland, Oregon (no tax) as for the specific address, Google 'starbucks Portland' and you'll get it.

3) Add your CC to the dummy account and purchase the agreed upon game.

PRO TIP:
Receive all the payment first before buying the game. Though it might slow the process down, it will keep you safe.

4) REMOVE YOUR CREDIT CARD INFORMATION
PRO TIP:
Don't even think about forgetting this step.

5) Share the game with your CAG buddies.

---------

Gamesharing 101 (Also brought to you by Bastiartadi and fatboyjam. Thanks!)

1) Never change the password for the account so that the others could sell it in the future when they do no need it anymore.

2) When sending payment (via paypal I'm assuming), always type in your CAG username in the accompanying message.

3) You can only have a maximum of 16 user accounts in your PS3 and thus, only have a maximum of 15 game share accounts (15 plus your main account = 16). Deleting a user account will free up one of the 16 slots available for your PS3. See new tutorial below.

4) Only 5 people can 'share' a PSN account (You and 4 others)

-----------

How to deactivate your PSN ID from your PS3. (NEW 3/23) (Yet another big thanks go out to Bastiartadi for this)

1) Log-in your PS3 using the account you want to deactivate

2) To deactivate, go to Account Management -> System Activation -> PS3 System -> Games -> Deactivate

3) To delete your account from the PS3, go to Users on the far left side of the XMB and delete the user your PSN ID is attatched to.

NOTE:
Step 2 frees up one of the 5 possible shares on the PSN account.

Step 3 frees up one of the 16 maximum slots on your PS3.

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 am trying to get this ASAP so shoot me a PM and I will reply with my PP info.

I would consider this if we agreed to include all future Borderlands DLC in the group. My problem is I've hit the max account limit on my PS3 so I need to combine as much as possible into each share.

Correction, I would definitely be in if we could agree to all future DLC.

Yeah that's one bonus to single game shares, but I'm not really ready to sell off any of the shares I have now to make room for new stuff so I don't know what my other options are. Maybe I should put some new shares on my other PS3. My Uncharted 2 ALL DLC group has worked out great though.

Random Co-op Gameshare Group:

- Lara Croft and The Guardian of Light
- Shank
- Scott Pilgrim vs. The World

The price for these 3 excellent games would be $8/person. I'd like to kindly ask someone to be the host of this gameshare, since most credit cards in my country (Hungary) don't work with the US PSN Store.

If the group decides to do so, we can add Castle Crashers as well (+$3), and I'd also be interested in any of the following games: Flower, Trine, Braid, Ratchet and Clank Quest for Booty, Wipeout HD and some Dragon Age DLC.

So if the group agrees on it, we can add any of the above (or maybe other titles) to our games, or we could even start a long-term group if you have the same interests.

So far there are 4 places left, and we've yet to find a host as well:

- me
- ?
- ?
- ?
- ?

If interested, let me know!

Did some looking around, some reviewers are saying they suspect it's the final one due to a GOTY edition coming out. In this interview with the head of the studio in Sept he says if people keep buying it they'll keep making it, but at the end he also says there are no current plans for more. He says he doesn't want to paint himself into a corner by saying there won't be more, but it kinda sounds like this is the last one. http://www.giantbomb...ds-dlc/17-3225/

This probably won't be a popular choice but what about My Aquarium? It's $5 and I'd be willing to pay a $1 share toward it. Not really a lot of good options at $5.

Not interested in that personally, but just so you know I won't be downloading it without paying.

I think I'll actually buy My Aquarium for myself now that I've looked into it, pretty cool for 5 bucks.
