    Question PS4 and Sub Accounts

    Hi,

    FAQ (http://us.playstation.com/ps4/features/ps4-faq/) says:

    Also, for each sub account user, there are the controls over the ability to use chat and messaging features, the ability to post and view user-generated media, and the ability to control a monthly spending limit for PlayStationŽStore purchases. Finally, sub account users cannot link their account with Social Network Services or use their real name or profile picture.

    More information about PS4™ parental controls will be made available at launch
    So that means that even Master Account can't permit Sub Account integration with FB?

    And Sony confirmed that Sub Account can't (yet?) be upgraded to Normal Accounts. Right?

    Sub Accouts will never be able to use FB/photo/real name?


    Has anybody tested Sub Account functionality in PS4?

    EDIT:


    I think I found my answers here:
    http://faq.en.playstation.com/app/an...etail/a_id/169
    and here:
    http://faq.en.playstation.com/app/an...tail/a_id/251/

    You cannot change or upgrade a child account to a youth account and you cannot change or upgrade a youth account to a master account when the account holder reaches the required age.
    Those silly restrictions makes me want to lie about my child's age and create a master account.

    Does anybody use Sub Accounts these days? Coz I see no sense doing that.

    The only sub account management you have is under Settings > Parental Controls

    Your options are:

    Parental Controls
    Chat/Message - allow/block
    User-Generated Media - allow/block
    Content Restriction - on/off
    Monthly Spending Limit - 0, 10, 25, 50, 100, 150, 300, unlimited

    Sub Account Password
    New Password
    Confirm Password

    you and me both i wanted to setup a sub account for my daughter who is 15, but the sub accounts where just to restrictive and no option to change it once she reaches 18 . Would hate to see her loose all her gaming accomplishment because she was forced to setup a new account so she could use Facebook. They really need to expand the sub account options. I want to keep track of what she is doing at times and set limits at times, its just so basic.

    This is exactly the same problem that the PS3 had. I won't create multiple accounts until this is fixed.

    It's a mess. A stupid ill thought out mess. I'm on the verge of lying about the age of my sons to create proper accounts.
