16 Replies 1,284 Views Created 21-08-2013

Hi there, does anyone know if you can use your PSN ID to play on the PS3 & PS4, as when I get the new PS4 some of my friends will still only have the PS3 so will want to play on both machines!! also any idea how many PSN ID you can link as I know at present it is to 2 machines.  Have not been able to find the answer anywhere!!

Re: PS3 & PS4 Playstation Network ID

I've been wondering this myself. I hope you can link it over and have no problems.

 

Having a new PSN ID for PS4 is kinda a hassle for me. Setting up yet another e-mail address, I believe i would need another subcription to PS+ for the seperate account aswell,  re-adding friends, remembering more passwords and log ins. Rather have it all under the same account I have now for PS3. 

 

Anyone with official answers would be a saint in my eyes.

Re: PS3 & PS4 Playstation Network ID

You can keep your current psn id to use on the ps4, indeed, you will have to if you have PS+ and want to keep the benefits on the ps4.
Other benefits from keeping the same account include transferring points from ps3 version of fifa14 to ps4 version. Something similar for the latest COD game.
Ps4 to allow 2000 on your friends list.

Sony are stabbing their loyal family customers in the back - We have 3 PS3s and 3 PSPs all on the same IP address and all registered with Sony. Why can't we use them at the same time anymore?

I doubt you would be able to at exactly the same time but you should still be able to use it on your ps3 if you are not signed on the ps4

Re: PS3 & PS4 Playstation Network ID

Thanks for all replies, lets hope we can sign in on PS3 and PS4 at different times with the same user ID as some of my friends will not be getting the PS4 yet, and I still want to play some of the multiplayer on the PS3 anyway.

Re: PS3 & PS4 Playstation Network ID

Still no word on the account number limitations though. Kinda worrys me because I'm sure I've reached my limit with this PSN account, and I tried to delete a previous PSN. That just turned into a saga I couldn't complete.
