Im kind of frustrated with this, so my cousin came over my house to play Black Ops 2 with me, and he wanted to use his account for split screen. When he made a new user went to PSN and sign up, put use existing account he put in his account info and it gave me that horrible message "This user already associated with another account on this system"  Please help, Im frustrated with all the updates to the accounts going on other systems Sony keeps putting up...Smiley Sad

On the XMB, if you scroll all the way to the left, there's a list of Accounts.  You can only have one account per user (email login ID).  It's possible that you've already created an Account for your cousin.  Just check the acounts already created and use the one associated with your Cousin.
