Upcoming change to PS3 and PSP game content on PlayStation Network

Over on the EU PlayStation Blog, Sony have detailed changes they are making to the usage policies for PlayStation Network game content.
Below is what they have said:

As of November 18, 2011, the number of devices that can be activated on one PlayStation Network account for game content purchased from the PlayStation Store will be updated.

For game content purchased after November 18 2011, a new policy will apply and the number of devices that can be activated will be as follows:

PS3: Users will be able to play the game on up to 2 activated PS3 systems.

PSP: Users will be able to play the game on up to 2 activated PSP systems.

Tthis update will not affect game content purchased before November 18. The PSP rights include PSP-1000/2000/3000 series as well as the PSPgo system.

PlayStation Network users are able to change the activation setting through each device, and Sony Computer Entertainment plans to provide a new PlayStation Network account management website where users will be able to deactivate particular devices attached to their PlayStation Network account via their PC.

Does this affect any of you? It is annoying decreasing the figure from five to 2 devices. If so, send us your thoughts in the comments.
