I have a PS3 with a PSN account and a Playstation Plus subscription. Now I have a new PS Vita that will be used by a minor in the household.
I cannot create and use a PSN subaccount on the PS Vita because I want to have the PS Vita to benefit from the PS Plus subscription (and thus get the free IGC and discounts). In other words, I would have to use my current (master) PSN account that's tied to the PS Plus subscription on the PS Vita as well (in my research and understanding, creating a subaccount would mean that I would have to get another PS Plus subscription for the subaccount).
- Is my understanding of how PS Plus works on master and subaccounts correct? (If not, please cite authoritative sources, preferably from Sony)
- Since the master account is to be used on the PS Vita for this situation, how can I ensure that the minor cannot purchase anything on the PS Vita (I would like purchases to be done by me)? Is there something in my PSN account settings that I can configure specifically for the PS Vita?
- Are the parental controls on the PS Vita adequate to prevent purchases by the minor? If yes, how would I go about doing the purchases myself?
