PS3 and PSP gamers currently have the option of downloading and activating titles on five systems. On November 18th, that number will change.

Sony has announced today that they will be reducing the activation count from five systems to two. The start date for the change will be November 18th during PlayStation Network maintenance. Any game purchased after November 18th can be activated and played on only two systems. However, any game purchased before the 18th will continue to have the five system count, andriasang reports.

Sony’s reason for the change is out of consideration of balance between consumer convenience and content creator copyright protection.
