Buying Vita but account info forgotten long ago


Prominent Member
Hi there,

I´m going to buy a Vita on Saturday but it´s been two years since I had a PS3. I can´t remember my email, password or gamertag either that I created about 5 years ago. :confused:

I know I could just start a new account but I had Trophies, purchased games such as Flower and the soundtrack to Heavy Rain, etc.

I suppose I´ll easily get all that info back from Sony if I tell them what I purchased and the billing details, etc?

Yeah, they may help, but the account name would help also.

Sometimes they ask for a balance on the account(wallet), what you last played, and what you last bought.

Don't hold out though, they may not be able to get anything back, with little to no info, and remembering at least your username might help a bit, even the email address..

Did you have any friends, as if so, you may still be on their list, and that would at least get you the name...

I'm surprised you're buying a Vita given what's expected.

Well prob not happeninng for a while now. Was going to buy one at the Airport because of no VAT making it affordable but I got stung by easyjet so couldn't buy it. Gutted.

Why though, what's expected?
