“Unlimited PS4 activation” PS4/PS5 trick confirmed patched
Multiple sources have contacted us to let us know that the “unlimited activation” trick for PS4/PS5 has been fixed by Sony. The technique allowed people to activate a seemingly unlimited amount of consoles with the same account, enabling game “sharing” (or in this case, paid piracy) on dozens of consoles with one account loaded with games.
Scene members, including @egycnq had revealed the trick, with the admitted goal of raising Sony’s attention to it for a patch, to prevent shady stores from reselling consoles with pirated content.
It seems this worked, as it took Sony less than a week to patch the vulnerability, and that didn’t even require a firmware upgrade, either on PS4 or PS5.
