PS3 PSN Account To PS4, Question!

7 Replies 2,434 Views Created 24-08-2013
Well, welcome, I'll try and explain the confusing Subject header now, my question is when I get my PS4 and log in will all my friends be there? Trophies and previous games or will I get the option to reset it, I like my current PSN name but I would like a fresh start and reset, so any ideas?

Thanks for your help!

Your friends and trophies will remain. They're tied to your psn account rather than a console.
As for changing your name, no word yet.

If you want a fresh start you will have to choose a new name. You could delete all your friends but you will still have all your trophies if you carry on with the same name.

Well, I'm assuming it works like ps3/vita. When I'm in my vita, I get the same notifications when friends come online, and I can go into their profiles as if I'm on ps3.

Wasn't it posted a while ago Sony still won't allow you to change your psn id?

 

how ever you can intergrate with social networks and have you real name showing (hope you can disable this)

 

when i do get the ps4 i am starting afresh already have the id set aside

 

Below is a Signature



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?
