After yesterday’s scheduled maintenance, PlayStation Network is allowing users with sub accounts to upgrade to master accounts, along with all of the added allure.
Many users who were previously under the age of 18 when they signed up with a PSN account were originally asked to create sub accounts to help monitor and restrict access to messages, monthly spending, and gameplay broadcasts.
The official PlayStation Blog has announced that, for the first time, those accounts will have the option to upgrade to master accounts, allowing full access to all PlayStation features for anyone who is 18 years or older.
For now, the upgrade is only possible on the web, but it will be made available directly through PlayStation 4 some time in the future. For more details, visit the official upgrade page.
It’s about time something like this was implemented. It’s been an issue since the PlayStation 3, and has plagued many who decided to be honest about their age when they signed onto PSN. I was not one of the honest few, but that’s not the point! I’m just glad it’s an issue that can go away and be forgotten… unlike our PSN usernames!
