PS4 General Tips 4 Beginners..

Postby AceofSpadesX131 » Mon Aug 25, 2014 12:10 am

Sup u all, this is Ace.

Just wanted to post some interesting features.

If your someone like me who don't care about Real Name Request, here is how to disable it.

1) From your Playstation 4 Main UI, hover over to settings and click it.
2) Click PSN
3) To advance, you may need to sign in to the PSN network. Skip if already done so.
4) Click on Privacy Settings
5) Click on Real Name and Profile Picture
6) Now you could set whether to display the real name you registered with your PSN. Set None so that no Real Name requests can be sent or received.

If your someone who hates going back and fourth watching a live stream on Live from Playstation and playing your current game, here is a one option that will save you some time.

1) While having your game inserted and played on your console, click on Live from Playstation.
2) Search your live stream video you wish to watch and click it. If your friend is live streaming, simply go to What's New and click on your friend who is currently live streaming (make sure you press triangle to refresh your content). Or click on Live from Playstation and manually search for your friend's live stream (by searching for his user name or title of the live stream).
3) Once searched, double tap the Playstation button on your controller and you will be automatically placed to your current game. Double tap again to return back to the live stream. Use this setting however you wish.

Thank you for reading these tips

Pretty nice general tips, I hadn't know that I could disable Real Name requests so thats really good to know, Jloco will be all over of that.
Hasn't affected since I was able to change my "Real Name" to my PSN ID.

Also that livestreaming tip is also good for if I ever want to spectate some elses stream.

Thanks alot :D

There's another little known method for reliably avoiding Real Name requests.

Step 1: Create a sub account

Step 2: Get locked out of the feature entirely

Sony really have ignored the sub account issue still?

That must be hell.

Upgrading a sub to master account should be something that is given by now.
But it isn't which is ridiculous.

I believe their most recent statement was that they have no plans for it. Bastards.

Huh, had no clue I could disable it just by removing my name.

I shortened the name to just initials, but now that I know I can remove that shit, I will be there tonight removing that crap!

I just put a fake name in on it, so I'm not worried about real name requests. I put my first name in, since my friends say it left and right in the videos I upload, because I have no idea when I'm going to record something. Usually I just set everything up, and if something good happens I flashback it.

Then I just put 'Reaper' in the last name spot.

That livestream tip could come in handy.
