    How to create a new account??

    Ok, I know this is probably a simple question but I'm a bit confused. I hooked up my PS3, made a user name, and got a couple trophies. Now I want to join the PSN and redeem my code for a year of PS Plus. Problem I'm having is when I try to create a PSN account it asks me to create an online name, but my user name is already taken. So what happens now..... how do I link my user name to the PSN account I'm about to create? Or is this not possible? Just a bit confused how the accounts work and what the difference is between a PSN online name and console user name. I mean, I know I could create several user names on the console but which ones can go online?

    Your username on ps3 is just used for login in to your ps3, not your psn. You should pick a brand new psn account name for your online gaming &account settings.

    Ok so I make a brand new PSN name and play online, say I get a trophy.... that goes to the PSN name? But my current trophies are on the PS3 console username?

    You'll be able to sync your existing trophies to your PSN account once you create it.
