Dear board members, We're currently investigating about the possibility of "migrating" some of our X360 and PS3 test-kits to another companies with the status of licensed developer/publisher for Sony or Microsoft. Basically, we currently have too many test-kits in our QA Lab, and thought that somebody might be interested in taking them over, for his/her company. Do you possibly have any experience in performing such equipment migration and if so, would you be so kind to provide some tips on how should we do it? Thank you very much! Mariusz

read the TOS in the contracts you signed with MS/Sony.
if you have legal questions, talk to a lawyer.

you wont find anyone with a reliable, legal backed, answer here.

We looked in to it at one company I was at (back in the PS1 era) and decided it wasn't worth the effort, lawyer time, and paperwork involved. It is best to simply following the instructions that are part of your licenses.

Relative to the rest of running a business, test kits are inexpensive and simply depreciate just like any other computer equipment. Unless you happen to have a large number of them you are unlikely to recover the salary and legal costs you would invest in the process.

Hello,

Thank you very much for your replies.

Are you sure that the process is so compliacated and demanding from legal perspective?

The acocount managers from both Sony and Microsoft informed me, that it's possible to "re-register" a particular test-kit for another company, so such "migration" is possible if the company who wants to reduce the number of test-kits (like us) makes an agreement with another company looking to have more.

Regards,
QA Team
