Seriously i don't understand this description of update.

 

It means that we can no longer register a new account on PSV or PS3? Or we can't even create an exisiting account on PSV or PS3?

As of right now I haven’t played my PS3 since 1 AM PST when I was trying out Gran Turismo 6. So I can’t give you the details.

You can now only create new accounts on PS4, PS5, PC or mobile.

If you were logged-in before the update on both PS Vita and PS3 (without 2FA and device passwords set up), the device password requirement won't affect you unless you logout, change your password or create a new PSN account.

I don't get it. What's so shocking about this?

The only thing I can think of is that this could screw up self boosting. If it's 2FA you need a legal cellphone number.

For device setup passwords you're able to generate them on the web browser without a mobile phone. I decided to update a PS3 and I was able to sign into accounts on it without a device setup password so maybe this change only affects new accounts that you add to PS3 consoles.

If so, this update doesn't bother anyone, i think.

Doesn't Sony support TOTP codes as well? (Something like Google Authenticator app for mobile phones.)

Otherwise yeah, if you need unique number for each account.

Those 6 digit codes will not work on ps3. It has to be a device setup password from the web.

You can use any two-step authentification app instead of SMS.

Right, but the case I was thinking about was: if I create fresh account and I'm forced to enable 2FA *and* Sony forces me to use unique phone number.
