I have sent e-mails to D3Publishers to address the issue on how the Geonet License is account binding instead of system binding, creating all sorts of issues regarding playing online using Asia PSN and being unable to achieve trophies on main accounts. This also restricts online usage of Geonet to a single account instead of sharing it WITH people using the same DISC in the house. For all of those who feel the same about being unable to do so, I would like for you to e-mail D3Publishers at

support@d3p.us

in an effort to voice out our thoughts, however small or insignificant it may be regarding the unfairness of such a restriction that it places on the end-user.

Sony and other 3rd party publishers are moving towards an online pass system where each and every game will come with an ID code that allows online access in an effort to stomp out 2nd hand sales of games. However much we may hate it, it is moving along regardless. I do not see why gamers who actually got the game first hand should be punish in the wake of this development, if games like Resistance 3 can integrate an online pass system where PSN accounts from various regions are able to connect online without issues, I do not see why gamers playing WKC II should be treated differently.

If you believe gamers should have the right to do so, please take an effort to voice your concerns to the publishers.

Below is the E-mail i received from d3publishers.

Thank you for contacting D3Publisher's Support Services.

The best I can do is to ensure your request in forwarded to the Production team responsible for the title. There have been others with requests similar to yours. If enough of these requests are received, the Production team may look into finding a means to address the issue.

I completely understand your frustration with this particular issue and I do appreciate your patience. But, again, I do not have the ability to make the change myself or to speak for those that do have the ability to make such a change. I will, however, ensure your frustrations (and those with similar frustrations) are shared with the Production and Development teams.

Please feel free to contact us again in the future as the need arises.

Sincerely,

Support Services
D3Publisher


I have taken the liberty to include a standard e-mail request for people interested.

Subject : Request for Geonet License System Change

D3Publisher Support Services,
the current Geonet License system restricts the end-users ability to play White Knight Chronicles II online on any other account on the same PS3 system and accounts other than a US PSN account. This has cause frustrations for many end-users who have actually bought the game first-hand. By limiting the Geonet License to a Service rather than a DLC, end-users that have bought the game first-hand are unable to enjoy the game on the same PS3 system with different PSN accounts set for family members and friends. It also restricts users who imported the game from playing on their main PSN accounts, achieving trophies, since the current Geonet License can only be activated on a single US PSN account.
I sincerely hope D3P would change the Geonet License from a Service, account binding system to a Download, system binding DLC.

Regards

It's just how online licenses works. You are expected to play with a PSN account that matches the region the game was sold in.

Your only choice is just to make a NA PSN account.

And? So? Therefore?
When I played WKC I there was no EU version, so I had to use my US account. I've done it, and so can they.
The only issue is not having all trophies on one account, and again I say who cares.

It's not how online licenses work, it is if you want it to be. As I have mentioned, they are still experimenting with this Online pass thing, Resistance 3 is one of the R1 games I got which has the Online pass, I got the R1 version because it was the only one with the Doomsday edition. I was able to download the online pass through my US PSN and use it on my Asia PSN account.

If Resistance 3 can do it, I dont see why other games can't follow suit.
Its just as simple as changing the online pass from a service to a download.

There are 2 issues, using the main account for trophies and progress and limiting the online pass to 1 per account instead of 1 per system.

Just because you don't care about the trophy system, doesn't mean others don't. To me the trophy system is a progress tracker, sometimes it serves as that other times it value adds to the games replayability. If it is as you mention, that no one cares about the trophy system, there wouldn't be any need for games to list it on the box, trophy system would have been abolish and such. The fact that it is still here today proves something.

The other issue with the current Geonet License is how it limits the use of the online pass to 1 per account. For those of you who plays alone, it is of no concern, but for those who have families, friends who come over to play, 1 per account online pass really hurts. Lets say your friend or brother decides to play this game as well, the only way to go online with this is either by accessing your account or fork out another 10 bucks just to activate online functionality on another account on the same PS3 system.
