Premium Avatars

[ Edited ]
17 replies 653 views Edited Apr 1, 2014

I use a sub-account, so i wasn't able to get the free month of PS Plus on my account, and had to use the master account that my account is under.  I got some premium avatars using the master account, but it will not let me use them on my account.  Is there a way to use the premium avatars on the sub-account?

Avatars work exclusively with the purchasing account and not any sub-accounts. You will need to purchase or redeem them on the sub.

It won't let me purchase the PS+ exclusive ones on my Sub-Account though, because it will only let me use PS+ on the Master Account.

There are only two PS+ exclusive avatars, the others are exclusive bundles but they are all sold seperately for everyone. You will have to pay $0.49 for the avatar you want on the sub as there's no way to get a PS+ exclusive avatar or bundle on a standard acct.

Sub-Accounts are beginning to cause to many problems for me.  I can't use alot of features, such as the facebook connection.  Even if I were to get a new master account now, I would be unable to get the free month of PS+.

I got the downloads on the master account already.  Everything works on the sub except for avatars.

As already explained above, unfortunately they are not transferable between the two accounts.

this has always seemed stupid to me - we can share games that cost 60$ (infamous 2) but we cant share 49 centavatars


A user would be less willing to spend $60 for each user for the same thing, than $0.49 for each user for the same thing.

i guess the reason it bugs me is my 3 kids all under 10 years old. want avatars - but i dont feel like adding funds to there wallets just to buy an avatar. a gift idea would be another way around this - like buying something on your account to send to someone else
