    Default Portable ID - Stupid S.N. not working

    Ok, I just went onto the Playstation site to register my PS3. When you register it it asks you for your Serial Number (on the barcode on the back of the PS3 by the HDMI port) and your date of purchase for the PS3.

    For one, how am I meant to remember the date of purchase for the PS3? But my main complaint is the stupid serial number doesn't work . I've copied it exactly from the barcode onto the site 3 times and it keeps saying it's invalid :S.

    Has anyone else had this problem?

    Are you on the EU or American site?? that might be a reason.

    With the date as long as you know the month and year you should be ok, just pick a random date.

    I'll try again on the EU site in a minute and I meant I don't know the month and year... I didn't think I'd need to remember .

    EDIT: Ok, went on the UK site and after a bit of pointless stupid transferring stuff that didn't work I got it to register. Tyvm Nodz for the help . +rep

    No, you don't have to register on the site, but click on the PSN logo on me (next to the XFire and Windows logo). See the thing that comes up? That's called a Portable ID. You have to go on the site to make one, but you don't HAVE to register your PS3 on the site, I just thought I might as well seeing as I was on there, but it really makes no difference if you don't .

    It will only show your PSN ID if you've made a Portable ID unfortunately . And if you have made one, just put your PSN ID in the box (I spent about 20 minutes earlier trying different combinations of the links it gave me to get it to show when I just had to put my PSN ID in in the end xD).

    Theres 2 sites to get the official one that is compatable with here, one is the NA site and the other is the EU site (afaik). You have to sort it out on them, then the NA one you costomize on your PS3 and the EU one on the website. I think thats right but i could be wrong.
