How do you delete sub accounts?

10 replies 18988 views Edited Feb 9, 2008
I made a total of 6 accounts in the past about over a year, for me and my friends but i have gotten the "corrupt data" message twice causing me to lose all of my game saves and sub accounts. when i got the corrupt data message the only thing that was still there was my online stats and my master account. so when i thought i only had my master account and tried to make another sub account i got a message stating that i could not make one due to the fact that i allready have a total of 6... all i have been tring to do for the longest time is figure out how to delete my sub accounts, if any one knows how to DELETE SUB ACCOUNTS please tell me, i only want my master account and ONE of my sub accounts.

my main problem is that the users dont show up but it sais they are there, the only one that allows me to click on and sign in is the master account.

It's not possible to delete any PSN accounts on your own.  Your only option is to call Sony and explain the situation, maybe they will delete them for you.

That may be, but I'm pretty sure you can delete the "user" on the machine. The acccount still exists at Sony and those other folks who had a "user" on the OP machine can still be in business. Which is a good thing!

Correct, you can delete the user profile from your system, but the account itself will reside on Sony's servers indefinitely.

So...sub-accounts cannot be deleted...except by Sony?  (It's obvious how to delete users which is different than PSN sub-accounts)

So was this ever answered? there is no way a sub account stays indefinatly.  It makes no sense to have to call into Sony to delete a sub account that you control.
