Inside it, it shows all my PS3 and PSP that are activated
Each PS3 box has generic name such as My PS3 System, My PS3 System 2, My PS3 System 3, My PS3 System 4, My PSP System.

Questions for PSN games/DLC bought on Nov.18 and later
If I buy a new PSN game now, it's now limited to sharing on 2 PS3 consoles. If I deactivate 2 out of 4 PS3 consoles, that will also deactivate all the PS3 older games/DLC/theme, etc bought from before Nov.18.
With single system activation/deactivation selector, there is no way to determine which console for older games on or before Nov.18.
What about retail games DLC redeem code? Does that follow PSN games 2 console sharing now? Sony didn't specify it.
I haven't bought a single PSN game since Nov.18, and would like to hear from anyone who has bought from PSN Store and also has 3 or more PS3 consoles to see how this really works.
There's also another issue that a deactivated PS3 console can be auto activated. Say, I only have PS3 A and B activated
and PS3 C and D deactivated
. If I download an older PSN game from before Nov.18 to PS3 C and D
, it will auto activate both PS3 C and D
. To become more complicated, I later decided I want PSN games bought after Nov.18
to be on PS3 A and C
. If I deactivate PS3 B
for the new game, all old games from before Nov.18 become deactivated
. This dual 5 and 2 sharing limit is a mess now since the management interface on the web has single activation/deactivate button for both sharing limit standard.
My short version of this question is how to keep pre-Nov.18 PSN games/DLC sharing up 5 PS3 consoles while post-Nov.18 PSN games/DLC still co-exist among those PS3 consoles since there isn't way to separately manage the console activation.Update
: It turns out it is not possible to activate or deactivate any PS3 consoles over the SEN web site. All the web site is show your activated consoles.
