Hello All - my son has been logging on and playing on the PS4 with his own account. He is 13 and I would like to link his account to my master account - with him as a sub account - but retaining his achievements
How can i do this?
I don't think you can link his existing account with yours. The only thing you could do would be to create a new sub account to your account, this would not retain his trophies though.
Thanks - I would need to delete his old account then to re-use the email address - is this possible?
Hmm not sure about being able to re-use the old email address. But worst case scenario would be having to make a new email address, pretty easy to do.
achivements are associated to his PSN account.
what are you trying to achieve by making his account a sub account ?
why I ask is that there might be another way of doing it :) depending on what you whant .
Since he is 13 id like to make sure he is safe online, also to share to downloads, games etc that are linked to the main account on the PS4. If I can do all this another way - then this is fine.
End of the day Its up 2 you are the parent , if go down the sub account it can be turned into a adult account when they turn 18,
there are limitations , pros and cons on both sides
age on the account will lock what they have access to on all consoles to some degree.
you can lock your console down more if required, how much you do is up to you.
as for shearing , you can do this by setting his account and your account to both primary on the same ps4 , this allows him to have access to the downloadable content on your account witch is suitable to his age. And his games that he downloads can be played by you. And psn plus can be sheared also if required from your account , so one psn plus account is required .
just make shore addresses match on both accounts, eg your detail are correct. :)
i find some more links from psn , there are a few re this as in how to lock your psn down and how to game shear under Sony rules :)
