Is there a way to completely delete old accounts on PSN?

9 replies 179 views Edited May 20, 2011

I was wondering if there was a way to completely delete old accounts so that there is now way of anyone ever getting hold of it? I know you can delete it off your PS3 but it does not seem  wiped completely.

Any suggestions or advice is greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

You can call Sony Customer Support and have them permanently disable it.

Okay, I will give that a shot. I want to make sure the old account is gone for sure. I do not want anyone else accessing it for any reason.

Once they disable it, there's no turning back. That's as deleted as it gets.

Well I contact Sony today to do just that. They can not delete any accounts until the investigation is complete, I did not even think about that.

So anyone else who was thinking like I was to delete any old accounts just to be safe will have to wait until they are done finding the people responsible for the hack.

What do you think they will get from your old account, that they cant get from your new one?

Just do not want someone accessing them and doing stupid things with them since my name is on them and it would reflect badly on me and my current account.

Nice sig btw.
