I created my PSN account many years ago, approximately 2008 when I was 12. And now that we have to stay at home for COVID-19, I wanted to log into it.
Unfortunately, I couldn't remember my password (or my old password doesn't work anymore as it doesn't respect current password norms). So I went for "forgotten password" but when I receive the mail from Sony, I can only recover my account by giving my date of birth or my favorite plate.
Moreover, when I was 12, it wasn't allowed to have a PSN account, so I had to enter a "fake" date of birth. And, you've guess it, I can't remember what was my favourite plate when I was this young : I tried several like Pizza or Pastas without success. Another "problem" is that you can only have a reset e-mail link each 45 minutes. So you can only enter 5 dates of birth by 45 minutes with makes it very hard to try all possible combination.
I tried calling Sony France today (I'm French). They told me they can't recover my account unless I have :
- The serial number of the first PlayStation which I've created my PSN. I've sold this PS3...
- A recipe of a purchase on the PS Store. But at 12, I only bought games in real stores.
- A credit card that could have been linked to my PSN account, but, you know... 12 years ago, I have no idea what credit card my dad could have used, and if he used one.
Do I have a way to recover my PSN account? Or is it lost forever?
