Hi,

So i'm a brand new Sony console owner, but I created an account on my friend's PS3 ages ago and now that i'm using it, i'm not in the same country anymore. Is there a way to change location, or do I need to create a new account? And if keep using the old one, will I still be able to purchase games and stuff like PS+? Thanks in advance!

You can't change it and the old one will still work - but buying PSN cards for it in your new country will not. You can use online payment or get cards from your old country to add funds. Anything you buy on any account on your PS4 will show up on your system and be playable, so you can just leave the old one on there if its got purchases tied to it and play on a new account if you want one.

I just created a new account, logged out of my old one, and now it gives me the error "Cannot sign in using another player's sign-in ID"? I'm not sure what's happening here. :/

Edit: Figured it out. :)
