You also could have created the sub-account on any PS3 or PSP console that has access to PSN.

Not if that account is for a minor.  The URL they send you in an email for parental consent doesn't work.

BTW I can't believe they still haven't fixed this.  Glad my workaround has helped everyone.

Re: Unable to create Sub account, please help?

Nov 22, 2011

I've tried to create a sub account in my region, EU. I had the same problem as the original poster but managed to create a sub account after some trial and error. I was able to follow Twosteds guide except for the step where you select the Device tab and activate the PS3. EU users get other choices there, or if I did something weird. I get:

How to Activate a PlayStation®3 System

When I login with the sub account, I also get a prompt for "". I click the Update button, enter my master account details and get the message:

We are unable to update your account at the moment. Please try again later.

I've tried for a few days, feels like I've hit a dead end. Any tips for a frustrated Swedish PS3 user?

You need to do just that.  Activate your PS3.  Look here for instructions on how to do that.

After your PS3 is activated it should show up under the device tab like I listed in my instructions.

I am unable to create a sub-account because it will not accept email and password when I get to the step where the parental account is authorization step. Has anyone else experienced this?
