So my son got a PS4. He wanted a capture card so he could post game footage. I tell him PS4 has that built in. He says it won't work because he's a sub account. I look into this and it's true. Sub accounts are good for dick.

OK, I'll call Sony and get his account transferred to a master. Sorry, we don't do that, not even when they turn 18. Sub accounts are sub accounts forever. He'll have to create a new account. OK, what about trophies and friends? He'll have to re-add friends and lose all his trophies. He can live with that, what about purchased games? Nope, he'll have to repurchase those. That kinda sucks but haven't bought too many of those, what about PSN? Nope, that doesn't transfer either, you'll have to buy a new one.

At this point I'm pretty livid and ask to speak to a supervisor. Tell supervisor I'm ok losing the friends, trophies, and even the games, but I'm not paying another $50 for a service that on a subaccount you're not even giving me full use of. I'd like mine cancelled and a credit for a new one under the new account. Supervisor tells me tough shit, they don't do that. I actually ask the person at this point, so Sony is ok with every playstation owner at the age of 18 switching to microsoft because their policies are so shitty. They again say, sorry, we don't give credits. You'll have to buy a new one.

So I tell my son he can have my master account and I'll be buying an Xbone. Xbone sub accounts automatically convert to master accounts when the player turns 18 and allow you to pick and choose what the sub account is able to do.

Side note, around this time both mine and my sons PS3s died. I would have bought another one since I still have a ton of games I haven't played yet but now I'll just sell the games and hard drives that I've added to the PS3s to help fund my Xbone.

yeah, it basically allows accounts under mine to share psn so you don't have to buy one for every person in the house. When we bought PSN for the ps4 it had to be added to my account because you can't apply it to subaccounts.

Hi back

Sub accounts are a thing which is why if I ever get a PS4 I need a new PSN. I do have control of the master account but I made it with my dad being in control which sucks. If I knew a master account was the way to go then back in the day I would have just lied and made a master account. It is complete bullshit they just can't make sub accounts master accounts.

To be fair, sub-accounts should never be used.

Besides, I have like 3 PSN accounts on my machines, all for different regions, and all of them can play the games that I buy on my normal account.

It sucks, but I can't help but feel theres an element of user error here...

I got rid of my sub account last night and I did lose games but I could game some of the games I lost on Steam if I really want them. I hardly use my PS3 these days and I am probably going to end up selling the thing to my uncle for cheap to make some quick cash.

user error? on PS3 sub accounts weren't a big deal. In fact they were a good thing. I could block voice chat for my kid so I didn't have to worry about my 10 year old being exposed to the endless array of curse words and sexual innuendos without really any negatives. It wasn't until PS4 came out and features were automatically disabled and couldn't be turned on on sub accounts when it became an issue.

Well, you could have researched sub accounts before you made his account. If I researched sub accounts in the past I would have never made one for myself and I would have never had to make a new PSN. You could have made him a master account in the past and set up the account the way you wanted so he didn't have to be exposed to a lot of lewd and negative comments online. Turning voice chat off isn't going to protect him from being exposed to those types of comments. I was hearing comments of that nature in 2nd grade along side Max in catholic school. I think we all should know we can't protect children from those types of comments. We were all kids once and heard tons of rude vocabulary when we were young. That's just life.

When I was under 18, I always lied about my age on websites so that I was never restricted. XBL included.

Why should he need to research them if they were working fine on the Playstation 3?

To find out that user accounts can't do shit? That nobody should create a user account if they are a serious gamer?

Mate, it's his 10 year old kid. And the user accounts did do shit but can't do that same shit on the new console, which is ridiculous from Sony.

Remember kids. Joey is an expert on PS3, given the money he's spent on buying new parts for it recently.

...

Whats that?

...

PC gamer?

Is he?

...

So how does he know so much about PS3?

...

Oh doesn't he?

...

Really?

...

Two short planks, you say?

...

Ah, okay, thanks.

That's right. My brother is an expert when it comes to Nintendo consoles. Did you know the Wii U can play dreamcast games? That is what he told me the other day.
