Re: Does Playstation Plus work with Sub-Account user?

Feb 7, 2012

Ok, here's the deal (as Ross Perot used to say).  Yes, I can verify it because I have a sub account, you can use plus with a sub account.  With that said there is a catch to it.  Your master account and your sub account has to be registered to the same person, address etc.  So if your master account holder is John Doe at 123 Smith Lane and your sub account is exactly the same then yes it will work just fine.  Back at launch I made a psn account with a name I decided i did not like.  So a few months with it I changed it to another one.  Back then they didn't warn you that you were making a sub account but thats exactly what I made.  And as I have been using that name ever since as my main account I wanted to use Plus with it.  And it works just fine.  Hope this helps.

"Your master account and your sub account has to be registered to the same person, address etc.  So if your master account holder is John Doe at 123 Smith Lane and your sub account is exactly the same then yes it will work just fine."

 

I've tryied the same thing and do not work for me...

 

I have a master acount and another two sub accounts, one has exactly the same information like you say and the other has not, neither has the plus access.

 

I only wanted that the two sub account can access the online storage to store the saves of each one... (i already lost two times the saves from them, and my are ok because i have the plus and the online storage save all of them)

 

Thanks

I could be wrong, & someone please feel free to correct me, but I was under the impression that the online storage was only available to the "main" account. not the sub-accounts.

I added funds to my main account and bought my Plus subscription on my sub account. I have access to all the features and all, cloud storage, etc.

Taken from this website:

 

NOTE:

 

The PlayStation Plus subscription will renew automatically. Every time you or one of your associated Sub Accounts purchases any kind of subscription, the automatic funding feature in the Master Account is set automatically to “ON.” Note that some subscriptions, for example PlayStation®Plus, are not available to Sub Accounts nor to users under 18. If, on the renewal date, Automatic Funding is set to “On”, your payment method is registered with us and your wallet does not have enough funds to cover the subscription charge, your wallet will be funded automatically from your registered payment method with the greater of the minimum top-up amount or the renewal cost. Funds added to the wallet are non-refundable. The Master Account holder may change this automatic funding setting to “OFF” at any time. However, the setting will return to “ON” upon subsequent purchase of any subscription, so setting your automatic funding feature to “OFF” may not effectively cancel your subscription. In order to stop receiving a subscription and avoid being charged, you must cancel your subscription in the Account Management area. If the credit card is not registered, the wallet does not have enough funds or [Automatic Funding] has been turned off, your PlayStation®Plus subscription may not be able to be renewed.

 

Unlkess Booboo is mistaken or their wording is wrong & they did indeed subscribe to this using a sub-account as indicated then the rules must have changed?!

There is so much mis-information in this thread.. :smileysad: I've had PS+ since day one and my son has been a sub-account. So I know this first hand.

 

If a master account has PS+, the sub account can use everything except Avatars, Cloud, and Auto-Sync. There was one Beta that was locked to the master account also, but I can't remember which one it was.

 

I wanted my son's sub-account to have PS+ because I wanted him to get the avatars as there were LBP ones at the beginning (This was before the cloud stuff). But, I read the same thing others mentioned here, that he wasn't allowed to have it, so I never tried.

 

Then the PSN hack happened and EVERYONE was given free PS+ for a short time. So, I've been renewing my son's sub-account ever since.

 

I have PS+ on my master account and my son has PS+ on his sub-account. We have two PS3's.. So he is setup to auto-sync everything on one PS3 and I am setup to auto-sync on the other PS3. He has gotten EVERYTHING that I have as a sub-account PS+ user so far.

 

Instead of asking here, just log into the sub-account and purchase it. Can't hurt to try.

Great post.  I remember posting some similar in another (or multiple) threads.  I'm setup similar to you, with a PS3 in the boys room, and mine in the living room.  I have the PS+ master account.  The boys get to play everything I download via PS+ ... I just have to download it for them under my account on their PS3.

 

The only thing they don't get are things locked to the account - avatars and I remember some of the original GT5 DLC received a PS+ discount, which was locked to the purchasing account.
