Delete a User Account on a PlayStation 3

This tutorial will show you step by step how to delete a user account (profile) on a PlayStation 3.

But first:

PlayStation 3 User Accounts

The PS3 (short for PlayStation 3) is a gaming console built by Sony that allows you to create multiple user accounts.

If you share the PlayStation with other people like a brother or sister, then having multiple user accounts is a good idea.

Data such as settings, themes, saved games, messages, and bookmarks are maintained separately for each user account.

You may want to delete a user account because you want to sell your PlayStation 3, or there's an account that nobody uses anymore, or maybe you want to create a new account.

If you delete a user account, you will lose saved data, messages, trophies, Internet browser bookmarks, history and settings, themes, and other information from that account.

And now:
