When you turn on your PlayStation 3 for the first time, you are asked to set up a user account for the console. This first user account is deemed the "master account," similar to the administrator account on a PC. If you want to delete your master account at any time (for example, if you want to sell your PS3), you can do so using specialised commands on the PS3's menu.
- Skill level:
Turn on your PlayStation 3 and open the "Settings" menu on screen.
Scroll down to and select the option reading "System Settings."
Choose the option reading "Format Utility." Select the listing for the PlayStation 3 hard drive on screen and press "X." This will delete the master user account on your PlayStation 3 game console. This will wipe all data from the hard drive including account settings, game data, save games and any content you have downloaded from the PlayStation Network Store.
