How to create a PSN account

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)
  1. Start up your PS4.
  2. Select [New User] > [Create a User] or users-icon-01-ps3-eu-24jul15.gif [User 1] on the PS4 Log-in screen.
  •    This creates the local user on the PS4 itself, not a PSN account.
  1. Select [Next] > [New to PlayStation Network? Create an Account] > [Sign Up Now].
  •    If you select [Skip] you can choose the avatar and name for your local user and play offline right away. Go to your avatar on the PS4 home screen to sign up for PSN later.
  •    If this is the first time you’re using this PS4 go to User 1’s [Profile] on the PS4 home screen.
  1. Enter your details and preferences and select [Next] on each screen.
  •    If you’re under 18 when you enter your birthday, you’ll create a local user for offline play and you’ll need to ask an adult to approve the account later.
  •    Don’t give an earlier date of birth because it’s against the PSN Terms of Use to give false information.
  •    If you’re over 18 and want to use your credit or debit card on PlayStation Store make sure the address you enter here matches your card billing address.
  •    Make sure you have access to the email address you enter because you’ll need to verify it.
  1. Create an Online ID and enter your first and last name.
  •    Your Online ID is your publicly visible name that other users on PSN will see.
  •    Think very carefully about your Online ID because you can’t change it later.
  1. Choose your Sharing, Friends and Messages settings (three screens).
  •    These are for your account only; they don’t affect what other users on the PS4 will see.
  •    If you’re under 18, account creation ends here and you can either ask an adult to sign in with their account to authorise PSN access or play offline until they do.
  1. Read and accept the PSN Terms of Service.
  1. Check your email and click the verification link.
  •    If you didn’t receive an account verification email, check the spam and junk folders.
  •    If you still can't find it, select [Help] to change your email address or ask us to resend the email.
  1. Select [Log in with Facebook] to link your PSN and Facebook accounts or [Do This Later].
  1. You’re now ready to enjoy all PSN services.

Hope this helped some of you guys! :)
