    Call of duty Season passes on activated systems?

    Call of duty Season passes on activated systems? 15th Mar 17 at 8:03 PM
    Hey Guys,

    Was wondering if anyone could enlighten me on this please.
    My Mate on COD is unable to download his already bought season pass on Ghosts and black ops 2 (possibly on other CODS too , havent looked yet) . Cos apparently its already on 5 PS3 systems so it says when we tried to download it. Thing is, hes only ever had one PS3 and has never gave it to anyone to download.
    He thinks that it could be his ex-wife gave it to her friends when he went offline for a while after the break up. But there again it could've been hacked?
    But when he looked into it on the system settings it says the season passes can only be downloaded on 2 systems and not 5. How does he go about deactivating the systems? as i believe his would be deactivated as well? will his purchases be deleted and he have to re-buy everything?
    A friend suggested he might have to send in a copy of proof of I.D to do it to show that it belongs to him is that right? Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks
    Amy

    There is an option to deactivate all the PS3's then he could reactivate his current console, he would then have access to any digital content he'd bought previously on that account:

    https://www.playstation.com/en-gb/get-help/help-library/my-account/device-activation-deactivation/how-to-deactivate-a-playstation-3-system/

    It doesn't sound like the account has been hacked if he still has access to it.

    Can be hacked, if someone of the friends have PS3 and they used the activation code. But rather there is another reason, contact customer support.

    Or his password is too weak, social engineered rather than hacked.
    Can people stop loaning money/being a guarator to family/friends, it rarely ends well and you lose out as your money is gone or you get shafted with being a guarantor.

    nothing bad happened. So do - send them the ID, the purchase will be canceled and the problem will be solved
