In addition to serving as a video game console and a DVD player, the Sony PlayStation can also be connected to the PlayStation Network to play and download video games online. All that is required to create an account is a valid email address.

If you are already active on the PlayStation Network but would like to change the email address associated with your account, you may do so in just a few simple steps. This tutorial will walk you through how it's done.

Change Login ID on PlayStation Network

Log in to your PlayStation Network account. In the Home menu, find the option for Account Management, and press the X button.


Sign-in with your current PlayStation Network ID (your email address), and then press the X button. Enter your password and press X again to proceed.

Now enter the new email address that you'd like assigned to your PlayStation Network account. Press the X button to continue.

Your login ID (email address) is now updated. Moving forward, you can use your new login information to access your PlayStation Network account.
