Remote deactivation

Sometimes you might need to deactivate your PlayStation system when you don’t have access to it. Remote deactivation is helpful for a number of situations, for example:

  • You’ve sent your PlayStation system to us for service.
  • You’ve sold an old PlayStation system.
  • Your PlayStation system has been stolen.

You can remotely deactivate once every 6 months only and we can’t make any exception, even if you contact us.

How to remotely deactivate all systems
