How to Cancel a PSN Account on a PS3

Written by chang lin | 13/05/2017

The PlayStation Network allows players to play online video games with other PS3 users, send and receive messages from friends, and download PS3 content. Since a PSN account cannot be deleted manually from a PS3 console, you must be "banned" by Sony Computer Entertainment America to cancel your account. Once you cancel your PSN account, you must create a new one to access all the online features of your PlayStation 3.

Turn on your PS3 console and scroll to the "Users" tab located in the far left corner of the XMB menu.

Scroll down and highlight the user name that is associated with the PSN account. Press the "Triangle" button to show the options and select "Delete" from the submenu. The user account associated with the PSN will be deleted.

Call a Sony Computer Entertainment America customer service representative at 877-971-7669 to request a ban on your PlayStation Network account. Give the representative your full name, account e-mail address and home address as verification. After she is finished, your account will be banned and deleted from the PSN server.
