Sub Account permanent?

4 replies 181 views Edited Apr 25, 2013

Okay I'm 17 but when I turn 18 in a few months I will still be a sub account?? Is there any way I could email or call them so that they can make me a master account once I turn 18? Or am I permanently a sub account? I seriously want to know because if not then I would rather make a master account and play off that with a fake age.

Unfortunately, "Sub-Accounts" are permanent. Smiley Sad

There is no way to upgrade them to a "Master Account."

 

I tried.

 

I had created a PSN account for my brother in 2007 (just in case somebody else took his PSN ID before he got a PS3)

When he finally got around to getting one, we sadly found out the account I had created for him was a Sub, an he could not upgrade it. (I contacted Sony.)

 

Hopefully Sony fixes this issue when the PS4 comes out. :fingers crossed:

You can change the e-mail address of the sub-account to something else in the Account Management app.  That will allow you to use the first e-mail address with a different PSN account.  A sub-account will always be a sub-account.  Legally it isn't even your account.  It belongs to your parents. If you decide to use a fake age, try to be smarter than most of the other kids, and use one that you won't forget.  Here's a suggestion.  Use one of your parents' birth dates.
