I need help
  • I bought a PS3 from a friend of a friend. The problem is if I want to play online I need a sign in name and password.. I dont have either.. How do I change the sign in name and password so that I am able to play online?
  • It's pretty simple, actually. First, go to the Users menu and set yourself up a name of your choice (this same name will be your PSN name). Once it is set up and you are logged onto the machine as that user, go to the PlayStation Network (no relation to us) section of the menu and click on the "Sign Up for the PlayStation network" symbol at the top.

    You're allowed multiple master accounts on a single system so if your friend left any games on the drive you'll need to keep his ID there. If the account that bought them is gone they will become unplayable on your name.
