Sub account can't brodcast.

6 replies 178 views Edited Nov 15, 2013
I have two accounts, one of the accounts I made when I first got my ps3 was an account to put my mom's credit card info on. I've been using my sub account for everything else. In the settings menu on the Master account, everything is switched to "Allow" yet when I go to try and brodcast on my sub account it says that I can't brodcast because I am on a sub account. How do I allow the Master account to grant the sub account access?

I really hope sony lets us change our Sub Accounts to Master Accounts soon., a 21 year old shouldn't have to suffer through this after being on PSN since 06-_-


Any help would be appreciated!

Yeah, it transferred over from my ps3 account. Wasn't able to redeem the 30 day trial that they gave though.

Sony has stated in the PS4 FAQ that sub-accounts will have limited access to social features and will not be upgradable in the near future (if ever). You're stuck making a new SEN account at this point, unfortunately.

So their pretty much asking you to throw away everything. The hundreds of dollars I've spent on their system, trophies, friends list, all of my downloads?! Ok, that's reaaaal smart of them, sorry but this is a pretty big flaw in their system and it needs to be fixed.

I agree man, this is major BS. Never thought playstation would pull some **bleep** like this. If they supposedly understand the gaming community why cant they understand how big a deal it is it lose all trophies and activity. Such bull
