multiple user accounts on same ps3



  • my daughter insists that it will be a disaster if her sister creates a seperate account on the ps3. I need help and the wisdom of Solomen here, can anyone out there help



  • Whilst I'm still not entirely sure of the potential concerns here, it's safe to say that it wont be a disaster - at least from a technical standpoint. As for avoiding sibling spats, who knows!

    Having multiple accounts allows for:

    • Individual separated savegames, potentially useful if a game only has a finite number of save slots per installation
    • Individual theme settings for PS3 menus and backgrounds etc.
    • Individual Playstation Network (PSN) accounts
      • Individual trophy achievement
      • Individual friend lists
    • From your point of view allows you to set individual parental controls should you wish

    When the PS3 boots, you are prompted to chose between accounts, perhaps taking a second or two of time but beyond that doesn't really change much.
