Earning trophies on different platforms in close proximity

7 posts in this topic

Hello everyone,

 

until recently I spent a lot of time on PS3 with my girlfriend playing a bunch of Final Fantasy titles on my PS4. I noticed that she hadn't created a new user for herself and was therefore playing on my account. Luckily I already have the trophies for all the games she played but what would have happened if she would have earned trophies on my PS4 while I was earning them on PS3? (Worst case scenario: Two trophies with the exact same timestamp, but one on PS3 and the other on PS4). Would this have gotten me into trouble?

Nothing would happen. PSNP doesn't care about team accounts. Only issue would be if you earned trophies on the same game, but on impossible frames, like beating difficult 2 and difficulty 3 too close together, per example. No need to worry about your scenario.

But isnt account sharing against Sony TOS?

PSNP doesn't care about it. Maybe sony could investigate and ban you, but how could they prove you didn't play both consoles at the "same" time? There is this one megaman streamer which can beat several megaman games at the same time. Some people are just nearly unhuman.

@TheYuriG Thank you for your reply 😊

@Van-Helsings Yeah I was only talking about PSNP leaderboard rules. Pretty sure Sony couldn't care less about this 🤷‍♂️

Letter of the law, and spirit of the law.

 

By the letter of law, they could investigate someone for letting someone, anyone, other than you use your account, even if it was someone else in the household. No matter how dumb the situation is.

 

By the spirit of the law, come on. You really think they'd ding me for letting my wife use my account to play a game because she didn't want to open her account? Or one of my children? No. That rule is in place to deter people from sharing their account with someone they don't know so they can download games of the shared account without paying. It's also to cover Sony's ass in case someone does share their account, the person they shared it with does something fucked up, and then the original person turns around and says "My identity was stolen and Sony allowed it to happen! I'm suing!" Sony can turn around and so, "No we didn't. We told you not to do it right here."
