PlayStation Network users can finally upgrade their sub account to a master account, Sony announced.

Users can perform the upgrade today from the WWW (instructions) and later through PlayStation 4.

Sub accounts allow people under the age of 18 to access PlayStation Network, while letting a parent or guardians manage their online experience. They can also limit a variety of service features such as messages, monthly spending limits, and gameplay broadcasts. Being unable to change this has become a bit of a problem, as many users who made sub accounts before the age of 18 are now over 18 and able to fully be responsible to maintain their own account.
