I am currently trying to “gift” my friend a game on PS3 (he lives states away) and came across some difficulties.
I know it is impossible to directly “gift” items from a PSN account -like on Steam- to a different PSN account. As an alternative, I have tried to log onto his account on my PS3 to buy it so it will be on his account so when he logs in on his console he will have it. However it says cannot buy because 2 systems have the same account activated, so my question is this:
Is there any downside or “cons” for my friend to deactivate his account momentarily? The idea was to have him deactivate his account on his console, i buy it, deactivate it on my console, he activates it then he has it. So, is there any harsh, irreversible consequences to doing this?
Thank you for your time.
