WARNING dont post any prices at all,the mods are lurking and trying to shut this thread down again

HOSTS: - Do not be a host if you have not game shared to see how it all works unless you understand what it entails!
- Create a new user on the PS3 (far left of XMB) and log in as that user
- Go to PlaystationNetwork on the XMB and create a new PSN account
- If needed, enter credit card info. If only sharing a free Demo, this isn't needed
- Redeem or purchase the game/demo to share
- Download game/demo
- Go back to your account management and DELETE your credit card info, if present
- Give your account login info to four others. They should also create a new local PS3 user, and then attach this account to it. That way, they don't have to delete and re-enter their real PSN accounts.
- Done
- Note if you share game A with 4 others on one name, and you DL game B, it can ONLY be shared with the original 4 others, not a new set of 4.

For the Downloaders: - Try to make a timely payment and response! And DON'T steal other games if available!!!
- Create a new user on the PS3 (far left of XMB) and log in as that user (OR try to keep the same host for less user accounts)
- Log in using the supplied log in information
- Download game/demo (Go to: Account management > Transaction management > Download List **If not a recent download download from the store, it's quicker**) Note: Once you start downloading, you do not need to remain logged in under their account
- Log in to your account and install
- Enjoy

TIPS - In some states or Canada ,you will get TAX from PSN . You can re-locate your family to state that does not have sale tax ( delaware) , then change address in account managment . Please be honest ,do not change it unless you are physically moved to the new state.

FAQS

Q: This whole gamesharing thing sounds sketchy to me. Is it legit?

A: Yes

Approved by Jack Tretton, President and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment of America

Sony announced that players who download games from PlayStation's online shop can share them on up to five other PS3 machines.

If a player logs into his PlayStation 3 account on a friend's system, he can download any game he has already purchased. "You can send that content to four other friends for that initial investment," said Tretton. "We want to get the game in as many hands as possible." "It's not about generating profits at each and every interaction with the consumer," he said. "I think that really offsets the argument that says, 'Wow, that's a really pricey system.'"

Q: How many users are allowed per PS3?

A: 16 at once.

Q: So....I can delete the new user once I download the game right?

A: Not if you plan on playing it! Note that if you delete a user, you LOSE ACCESS TO THE DLC associated with that user. Many have taken to naming users after games downloaded to reduce confusion.

Q: May I have an example of all this?

A: Lets say I make an account that is slickdeals1@yahoo.com, username: Burn Fighter.

If I dl street fighter and burnout to that account, I can share those games with a total of four other people. It does not matter whether they only dl one or another.
Person A - SF
Person B - BO
Person C&D - SF & BO

At this point, the only downloads left available are person A getting BO and person B getting SF. That is why you should create a new user per share. Once I delete Burnout & Street Fighter the user from my PS3 though, I can no longer play Street Fighter or Burnout at all.

Q: Is there anyway to fix this?

A: Relist a new username with the account assigned to Burnout and SF. You'll have to redownload again as well. And not delete the user again.

Q: So, I want to join in, how do I do this?


A: First read all the other facts, then if you want to know when the game will be downloaded, and other miscellaneous questions PM the host, if there is no host sign up and wait to ask.

RULES:
- Available games presented with game/demo/dlc to offer (i.e. - the host)
- Host lists item up that are available and slots available
- Interested people enter your SD username into a slot or make a list of what games you have available. PM each other if need be.
- Please Link your SD account to your name post, it's easier to PM you. - Members list search yourself
- Either link your name on this list to your SlickDeals profile page or post your AIM/YAHOO/Instant messaging name along with which service it is for
- Those who want to host please designate yourself as such!
- Have fun!

WarHawk - EDIT: Not shareable if downloaded from PSN Frown Bummer.
EDIT: On PSN it says you need to wait 24 hours between each activation, not yet confirmed.
EDIT: Game can be downloaded on five different systems with 24 hour wait between each download, but only the account used to purchase the game can log in and play it. Thus it's essentially not shareable since only one person can be logged into an account at any given time. Link: http://www.1up.com/do/newsStory?cId=3162392

I think i got it down. I'm sure people will get upset by the back and forth of this, but this should work.
Games are now referred to as "Available". This new system will add an extra step, since interested players will have to list their available games as well separately. PM each other to discuss.
Please revise if this is not SD friendly enough.
