PSN ID's PS3 vs PS4

8 replies 205 views Edited Sep 28, 2013

So I am wonder, when the PS4 comes out, are we going to have to start completely over with new PSN ID's or are we going to be able to use the PS3 PSN ID.

 

Also when I get PS Plus, if I buy it now, will I be able to use it on both my PS3 and my PS4 or just one or the other?

 

In otherwords if I buy a PS4 and I still have my PS3, will I be able to use Plus on both consoles.

You PSN ID is not tied to your console, it's tied to your account - whether you go to Vita, PS4, and back to PS3, all three can be signed in with you PSN ID. More so, your PS+ carries over to all three platforms - one account of PS+ covers all three.

All info about the PS4 can be found in the Mega PS4 thread Smiley Wink!

No, the same PSN ID will be used.

 

And yes, one Plus Subscription will work over multiple consoles.

No you don't have to start over, you are going to be able to use your current id. Plus will carry on.

yes and yes

 

You keep your current ID and trophies, and can use the same PS+ sub.

You can still use the same PlayStation Network ID on your PlayStation 4, and you can use PlayStation Plus with it too.
