PSN ID Linking FAQ

It appears as though that the official PlayStation forums ( has started linking PSN ID's to your forum user/login ID.
Lets hope they add trophy support as well as a "gamercard"

i can confirm this, the official US PSN website is now asking you to link you account with the PSN. expect the APIs to roll in at some point, its becoming awesome to be a PS3 gamer

It seems like every few days I'm finding something out about my PS3 that I didn't know I could do. I love it.

What are APIs?

Just linked my PSN ID up with my PSU forum ID - very cool feature that is really well done.

I'm impressed!

..Now I just can't wait for trophy linking support :)

P.S. Have fun @ E3 sev1512! Lucky you-know-what... :P

I hope they make it manditory and that you need to have a PS3 or something... i hate trolls in the forums over there.

PlayStation3603966d ago (Edited 3966d ago )

"Application Programming Interface" I believe.

To be exact what this has to do with the PS3. You will be able upload in-game footage directly from the PS3 to YouTube.

Edit: VVV That too :) It's gonna be awesome.

PlayStation360, not to mention a more enhanced portable ID which allows you to see your trophies from any site that supports it, just like Microsoft's gamercard implementation

Linking up PSN IDs to
but when I tried to add more then 1 ID it crashes the entire system and spits out error messages.

Ha... PS3 is like the Patriots in ways. Seems like they keep stealing the other teams playbook. If you can't beat 'em... join 'em. ha

this is awesome, i can see my freinds list now on the site. continue evolving it sony, great step, i can now see the next phase, viewing your trophies online and allowing you to send messages between friends via the PC, awesome, not to mention Home

CViper3966d ago (Edited 3966d ago )

even if you don't have a ps3?


Eh, thats useless. I was hoping some of the trolling on that site would go away if you needed to own a ps3 to participate in the ps3 forums.

Sev3966d ago

Yes, read the FAQ in the link. It tells you all about it, and how to get a PSN ID even without a PS3.
