is it possible to use 2 playstation ids on the same system

6 replies 131 views Edited Jan 10, 2013

Hi ....

I just created a new playstation id and i got a message saying that i can't use my new id, i have to use the original one.  

Is there anyway to use my new id and forget about the old one?

Welcome to the PlayStation Community.

 

You can't use two, but to solve your problem just go to the far left of the XMB Menu, choose users, then choose create new user, then add your new PSN ID & password, you should now be able to sign in with your newly created PSN ID, you can once signed in delete the other user if you so wish.

 

Hope this helped.

Ok cool.

 

Do you mind me asking why you're doing the restore, other problems?

I hate to break it to you but no-one "hacked" your account, the ONLY way soemone can gain access to your account is if you or someone else gave them your password, in any event a system restore won't solve your issue.

Restoring your system because you've been "hacked" is about as effective as hitting you in the head with a rock to fix your heart problem.

Know what will help? Not giving your info out to strangers.
