2 replies 557 views Edited Mar 28, 2013

Is there something going on with PSN? Because i tried making a new account today and when i typed in the Online ID i wanted it said it was already taken but i got on my other account and tried to add it and it said that account hasn't been created yet? is anyone else having a problem like this?

Never had a problem like that, but it might be reserved.

I think PSN has a pool of reserved names for various reasons.

The account was most likely disabled so it no longer exists. But to prevent confusion, once an ID is taken, it cannot be used again, even if the original account no longer exists
