Sub-account upgrade to master account

20 replies 439 views Edited Mar 15, 2013
Sony please start allowing sub-accounts to be upgraded to master accounts. I am posting here because I have been fighting with Sony since I created my account and ever since had more and more restrictions put on my account. I am over 18 and should not have to be stuck on a sub-account. And NO I WILL NOT CREATE A NEW ACCOUNT. I am level 13 on trophies and have a rare PSN ID that wish to keep. Allowing me to change account type would solve my issue with the Playstation network. Thank you.

The big one for me is to have access to playstation plus. If I buy plus on my master account I cannot use free games on my Vita. As my Vita is registered to my sub-account PSN ID.

You can call support, maybe they can merge the accounts for you. No matter what it would have to be done on their end.

I agree with you, SONY should allow for sub-accounts to upgraded to master account status.

I have no experience with this since both of my ps3s (old one was stolen... loved that one, but this one works just as well since i can still play my ps1 discs and i don't have any more ps2 games, they were stolen with my old ps3) have only had a single user account on them.

When we got our first PS3 I was honest and put in my children's accounts as I had to, sub to my Master Account. The only way around that is to do it differently.

 

Sony will not emancipate accounts when they reach adulthood.

 

I keep a link in my sig to info about this issue with a petition, just to keep up with the idea that Sony SHOULD do this, and bring it to the attention of more people.

And unless something that can truly break down the reason as to why SONY doesn't escalete sub-accounts to Master accounts, you will keep dealing with this for years to come. Since the launch of the PSN, the term of service have been clear about PSN accounts.
