Re: PSN Sub Account

Nov 23, 2013

Sony contacted Polygon after they released an article about how people that are 18 years or older with sub account, can upgrade to a master account, saying that the info Polygon gave before wasn't true. Here's the article, you can see it talked about at the end of the article. http://www.polygon.com/2013/11/12/5094136/heres-how-well-play-pay-talk-and-more-with-the-ps4

I agree kchow it is very aggravating to see Sony blatantly ignore this issue. Forget the whole upgrade a sub account issue..simply allow sub accounts to have access to all features with parental controls for the master account. This would solve everything. I would love too hear Sony's explanation on why that isn't the case.

Yeah, there is even a setting in the parental controls of the master account that should enable sub accounts to use the Share functionality, but sadly it doesn't do anything. Shame that they automatically block it instead of giving us the choice.

They need to fix this already, had some awesome footage on Killzone multiplayer and I can't upload it. They will even make more money because if they let sub-accounts become master accounts then all of those subs will need to buy PS+.

Actually sub accounts can get PS Plus, I think that you are only limited to getting 1 year instead of 3 or 1 months unless they changed it recently. My sub account has PS Plus and if only one account  has it,  you  can make it primary  and anyone that plays on your PS4 can enjoy the benefits without having to buy another subscription. Agreed, a lot of great footage that I would love to upload or livestream, but can't.

Yeah, I have no problem buying things from the store or having PS+. I have to keep adding funds to the master wallet which is annoying though. Especially since it's my own credit card I've been using since I was 18. Atleast they didn't block the ability to take my money from an account that doesn't have the same name as my credit card.
