Playstation 4

Episode 1094

Russell from Show Low, AZ

Russell bought a Playstation 4 and he can't create a Playstation ID because it says it's "not allowed." Sony doesn't know why it's happening. Leo says if trying a different ID isn't working, then it could be an issue with his IP address being blocked. Leo says that sometimes an abusive user can cause so much trouble that Sony will ban the ID and nobody can use it. That may be the case here. If the IP address is attached to the ID, then that IP may now be associated with the banned account now.

Microsoft and Sony both had announcements regarding their next generation gaming consoles at the E3 conference this week.

Both will be out in time for the holiday season this Fall.
