One person is trying to play games on the PS3 while the other is on the PS4. It's showing that it's not the right account and reads the files will be deleted.

The two consoles don't play the same game software, so there should not be a conflict.  What game are we talking about?

I don't think you can sign in to both consoles using the same ID.

Got it to work. Both are signed in under the the same PSN account name.

I meant signing in to both at the same time. If you can do that that's cool, but how do your friends see you?
