Sony on PSN: Upgrade PSN Sub Accounts to Master Accounts

Sony on PSN: Upgrade PSN Sub Accounts to Master Accounts 700°
3w ago - Sony Network Entertainment VP Eric Lempel shared details today on how you can upgrade PSN Sub Accounts to Master Accounts below.

To quote: Starting today, PlayStation Network (PSN) users will gain the ability to upgrade a sub account to a master account. We're always listening to user feedback, and this is a feature that many of you have asked for.

You'll be able to upgrade an account first through the web and later through PlayStation 4. Instructions on how to start this process through the web can be found here.

In case you aren't familiar, sub accounts allow users under the age of 18 to access PSN while letting parents or guardians manage their online experience. A variety of PSN features can be limited through sub accounts including messages, monthly spending limits, and gameplay broadcasts.

Additional information is available on our Knowledge Center, here.

If you were on a sub account and turned 18 (Happy belated birthday!), you may want to upgrade to a master account to access the full feature set of PlayStation's online experience, including PlayStation Store.
 

Sony PSN Accounts Migrating to Sony Entertainment Network (SEN)

Sony PSN Accounts Migrating to Sony Entertainment Network (SEN) 550°
160w ago - Sony has announced today that their PlayStation Network (PSN) accounts will be migrating to Sony Entertainment Network (SEN) accounts next week.

Below is the official press release, as follows:

Press Release: On February 8, 2012, your “PlayStation Network account” will be renamed a “Sony Entertainment Network account” or a “SEN account” in conjunction with Sony Computer Entertainment’s PlayStation 3 system software and PlayStation Vita system software updates. (Note, this change will not be applied to the PSP (PlayStation Portable) system at this time.)

For general purposes, this account change is a change in name only. Your username or password will not change, nor are we asking you to change them. In accordance with this transition, some necessary naming changes will be made to the TOS and Privacy Policy.

This transition is based on Sony’s goal to enhance its unique digital entertainment offering. As a series of these activities Sony started last September, PlayStation Network will be aligned with “Sony Entertainment Network.” This helps us get closer to our goal of establishing a global comprehensive network platform of services across games, movies, music and more, all accessible from one convenient account.
 

Sony Confirms PS Vita PSN Accounts Linked to Memory Cards

Sony Confirms PS Vita PSN Accounts Linked to Memory Cards 750°
169w ago - Today Sony's associate brand marketing manager Crystal MacKenzie has confirmed that PS Vita PSN accounts are linked to the handheld's memory cards and not the device itself for those wondering.

Essentially this means those who like bringing their gamer profile and downloadable games over to a friends house to show them off will probably like the PlayStation Vita since the PSN accounts are bonded to the memory card they're downloaded to.

To quote from GameInformer.com (linked above): "Your PSN ID is bonded to your memory card and your memory card is bonded to your Vita," Sony associate brand marketing manager Crystal MacKenzie told Wired.

"So if you wanted to change different PSN users but use the same memory card, you would need to go factory reset."

So accessing your PSN account and games is as easy as swapping out the memory card they're installed on. Sounds simple enough. If you have too much media for one of Sony's spendy storage devices, you can have your PSN account linked to multiple memory cards.

One question I have is how often do you think you'll be swapping out memory...

Phished XBox Live Accounts Reported to be in Circulation

Phished XBox Live Accounts Reported to be in Circulation 50°
311w ago - Last month we reported news that hackers were targeting XBox Live players and selling 'booting off' services.

Today, XBox Live users have another issue to worry about: phished XBox Live accounts have been reported in circulation.

To quote: Today we came across a collection of approximately 270 sets of login details that have apparently been Phished via a fake XBox Live login page.

The list, some 27 pages long in Word format, would allow people to access stolen XBox Live accounts, some of which may have credit card details stored against them (along with other forms of personal information, of course).

The list itself is actually around 300 or so entries, but it seems some of it is duplicate and / or obviously fake data, entered by people annoyed at the Phishers the list has come from (as a side note, I should add it's never a good idea to enter fake info on Phishing pages - it not only makes it harder for people who wade through this info looking for victims to contact, it also opens you up to potential retaliation attacks from the Phishers).

An additional "bonus" of grabbing Live ID data is that you can use it to check out EMail accounts associated with it -...
