No. Why would it let you?
I understand why YOU want to do it, but you're going to have to set up another account.

He might have been born earlier, maybe he created a time machine and got his mum and dad together earlier.

I put my DOB in wrong, so i sent an email to SCEE years ago to correct it, i got no response but they did correct it. I noticed when one of the game websites got your details from your PSN and the DOB had been changed. Im not saying this will work for others though.

I don't see how anyone can 'accidentally' enter a wrong DOB when you select dates from a list, and then have to confirm it.

 

Deliberately entering a wrong DOB to access age-restricted content is against the terms and conditions you agreed to abide by when you signed up to use PSN.

 

Don't expect any help from Sony.

I must admit that it would take some seriously bad luck - but I do like to give people the benefit of doubt ;)

In the era of Internet it is highly naive to think ALL users would provide proper DoB :) During the registration nobody can really forsee the importance of DoB and imposibillity to change it later ! This is also quite rare and NOT right to disallow users to change ALL THEIR PERSONAL DATA ! It's unusal and rare (oldfashioned) method of securing the account - well the Sony brand isn't that young so maybe that's why The DoB drop-down list includes years 1899-1913, etc. I wonder what's the value for SONY of having 110 years old PSN users ?! lol...naive again.. Typos do happen!

Hi Guys,

 

To confirm its not possible to change the date of birth on your PSN account. If for any reason your account has the wrong date of birth attached you should contact PlayStation Support who, depending on the circumstances may amend it to the correct DOB.
