The master/sub account issue needs to be fixed immediatly

5 replies 211 views Edited Dec 13, 2013

I currently use a sub account that was made when I was younger.  Now I am 20 years old, have my own credit card and I am still forced to use my dads old master account which i have control over to do any money transfers and give myself playsation plus.  As the sub account I have no access to plus features that I payed for and that is unacceptable.  

 

The big problem for me is that my brother and I are both linked to that account.  we have no way of differentiating whos money is whos on the wallet.  Also when he goes to PS4 he will be unable to use PS plus because I have control of the master account.

 

Sony you need to make the ability to transfer a sub account to a master account a priority, this is causing problems for me and my brother.  Me and him need to be able to upgrade our accounts and use our own credit cards.

Sometimes you just need to put the past behind you are start fresh.

 

Not ideal but seems your only choice other than The Wait.

the account im using to talk to you right now, is my old sub account. i no longer use it after the ps4 came out... look at ALL the tropheys i had, all no longer connected to my main account. ALL my games that i bought on this account, no longer playable on my vita...

 

i dont regret it though, its probably better that you create a new account, you wont regret it.

Re: The master/sub account issue needs to be fixed immediatly

I recently got a PS4 and realized that the share functionality was not permitted for sub accounts (as I was one of those people who got a PS3 before I was 18 and had to create a sub account). I received the suggestion from a Sony rep to create a new master account. The problem with that is that I would lose the remainder of my PS+ subscription along with the other purchases.

 

I recently created a new master account and started using it, but I just found out another issue. I linked my sony rewards account to my PSN account prior to getting the PS4 and according to http://www.sonyrewards.com/en/how_it_works/faq/, there is no way to link it to the new account if I create one. So, now there is no way for me to get Sony Rewards from buying things from PSN with the new account.

 

Is there nothing that can be done about this? Anyone with suggestions?

 

Thanks!
