Attention to all aces who are unfortunately stuck with Sub Accounts! Starting now, anyone with a Sub Account who has turned 18 can now upgrade their account to a Master Account!!
Please keep in mind the following about Sub Account graduation:
- This is not mandatory. If you want to continue using a Sub Account even after you turn 18, you have that option.
- You will keep all of your account settings, Trophies, content that you have purchased, Friends, etc. and your PSN ID will stay the same.
- You will now have access to your own wallet like all other Master Accounts. However, the Master Account in charge of your account will not transfer the funds that are still in there. PSN funds cannot be transferred between accounts. If you want to keep/use the funds that are still in that account, you should not upgrade your Sub Account until you spend all of the remaining balance.
- This process is not reversible. You cannot convert a Master Account into a Sub Account.
For now, this upgrade/graduation process can only be performed through the Sony Entertainment Network Account website at https://account.sonyentertainmentnetwork.com/ Eventually, PlayStation 4 consoles will be able to perform this upgrade as well.
I will be spending the remaining balance in my Master Account and upgrading my Sub Account ASAP! What about you guys? Have you been blessed with not having to deal with Sub Accounts? Did you lie about being 18 when you signed up? Have you been in the same pain I have been in the past 4 years? Leave your comments!
