TL;DR - Are "Instant Game Collection" games bound to your machine, or to your PSN account?

I currently own a PS3 with an expired PS Plus subscription on a (Canadian) Account, and I have a bunch of games on it from the Instant Game Collection (meaning, if I subscribe again, those games will be active).

If I purchase a PS Plus subscription on a different (United States) account, will I have access to those games?

  • Ive been under the impression that once your account expires you loose those games.... I also highly doubt that those downloads would be available in different countries, but it might be best to reach out to Sony on this. – erwstout Feb 22 '16 at 22:55

    @buschschwick Games are tied to your account, not your country. I live in the Netherlands and my PS3/PS4/Vita are all EU, but my PSN account is American and everything works just fine. – FAE Feb 23 '16 at 1:27

No. Games are bound to the PSN account.
