    Can DLC be used by different users on same PS3?

    Hi, I'm about to buy some DLC for the game, the only thing keeping me from doing it right now is that my girlfriend and I are using the same PS3 on 2 different accounts (to keep each other skill level), so my question is, If I buy DLC on my account will she be able to use it on her account?

    I'm not sure about ps3's but on xbox you can as long as it's on the console that originally downloaded it. For example, I have an xbox in my living room that used to purchase and download my dlc. I also copied it to my xbox in the spare room. If I am using the spare xbox and i don't log into xbox live so it recognizes my profile as the one that purchased it, I can't use the dlc.Nobody can for that matter. but on my main xbox, id doesn't matter if im logged in or not. Anyone on logged on that machine can use it.

    Yes. Due to PS3 freezing issues at the higher RS levels (6 and above) I've added a couple extra user accounts to my PS3 to start RS from the beginning. I've downloaded all of the DLC to my primary account, and when I log in under my other accounts all of the DLC has been there for me to play...so yes the DLC is shared between your system's user profiles.

    Just to amplify a bit, the DLC is available on all profiles, the bonus songs that are unlocked are only available to the profile that unlocks them.

    Also, you can install DLC from a PSN account on up to two PS3s. I assume this is for if a family owns two systems.

    What about if I have the PC version, and the xBox version? I would like to buy some of the DLC (all eventually) but dont want to buy them twice. I play the PC version at work and te xbox at home, which is why I have two different versions, but play both.

    You would need to buy the DLC for both console and PC.
