How to change account to new console?

8 replies 111 views Edited Dec 18, 2012

My console died and now I want to know how to remove my PSN account from the old one. I heard the accounts are bound to the first console they are used and you can use it in only one more console, so I wish to remove it from the dead one.

Since your console is dead, I'd suggest calling SONY directly:

 

PHONE 800-345-SONY
Mon - Sun 6:00AM - 10:00PM Pacific

You are indeed correct, kythunder, unless the user has a problem navigating the website and cannot deactivate it online.  As we see, in this case everything is good.  Like the link - hadn't used it before.
