Have you heard? You won't be able to share Warhawk
, like you have all your other PSN games. Although you can install the game on to five different machines, the fine text in the PlayStation Store reveals that you can only play the game from one of those machines within a 24 hour period. "One time fee for download or use solely by the purchasing PSN account on up to five PS3 units, with no more than one activated PS3 unit within a 24 hour period. Content may not be used by any other account."
So, will this practice of limiting access to downloadable games become commonplace? No. In a statement to Next-Gen, Sony explains that Warhawk
needed a different DRM scheme in order to "protect our investment" and "maintain our ability to offer a 24-hour free online gameplay experience." Understandable, considering how the PSN is free of charge. However, make sure you read the fine print before download your next game -- things might change on a case-by-case basis.
