As a user of PlayStation and a gamer of Epic games, have you ever encountered errors like “your PSN account has already been associated with another epic games account”? If you have, how do you solve your problem? Do you adopt one of the following methods?
Solution 1. Change Epic Games Account Details
If you receive the above message when you try to connect your console to your Epic Games account, the chance may be that the console has already been connected to an Epic Games account yet you aren’t aware of that. If so, you should log in to your console PSN account to verify your account details.
Step 1. Click https://www.epicgames.com/id/login to login with your console account.
Step 2. Select the icon for your console type.
Step 3. Log in with your console account credentials.
Step 4. Then, in the Epic Games account, you can change or verify your account information.
Solution 2. Upgrade to A Full Epic Games Account
When you are informed with “your PSN has already been associated with another epic games account”, it may also be that your console account is connected to a nameless account. That is to say, when you connect your console account to Epic Games, your console account has no email, password, display username, first and last name.
The situation probably is that when you first use your console to play Epic Games, you select not to register for an Epic Games account. So, Epic automatically creates an account for you using your console login credentials to access the account. Therefore, you can play and save your game process and purchases and you can continue with where you are last time you exit the game as well as use the things you purchased.
