    Hello,

    My son and I are trying to play Minecraft Bedrock Edition together. We have 2 PS4 with completely different PSN account names. I created 2 Microsoft Accounts. My Microsoft Account is fine and I am able to log into Minecraft on my PS4 successfully. However,
    on my son's PS4 I keep getting the above error. Not sure how his Microsoft Account could be linked to another PSN Account? Is there a way to unlink his Microsoft Account? I have tried changing his password on my laptop by successfully logging into Microsoft.com
    with his Microsoft Account. Change was successful, went through the process and I get the same error as above again.

    Any help would be most appreciated.

    Thanks

    :)

    Hi Cozmic,

    Thanks for coming to the Xbox forums. You will need to get with PlayStation on how to unlink the account. If that doesn't work, you could create a new Microsoft account for the sole purpose of Minecraft on PlayStation. The

    Minecraft for PlayStation FAQ
    has a lot of information in regards to your issue also.

    Thanks,

    Brad

    How to link my Microsoft Outlook e-mail to my Microsoft Xbox Live gamer tag? Microsoft support is telling me I can't do that. Is it possible? Why is Microsoft so bad?

    Actually the support gave you a correct answer since you cannot associate to an account an already existing Microsoft email (@hotmail.com, @outlook.com,
    or @live.com), which is as a consequence already associated to another account.

    Currently, you can't move your services from one Microsoft account to another, so they cannot move content you have in one account to the other.

    Please remember that your "Xbox Live account" is a full Microsoft account and your
    "Microsoft Outlook email" is another Microsoft account. Until the above point is made possible, you cannot link them.

    Hi Jza99,

    if the email you would like to use is already linked to a microsoft account then you cannot add an alias that is already associated with another Microsoft account . Aliases cannot be used to share information between two Microsoft accounts. Existing @hotmail.com,
    @live.com, Outlook.com, and @msn.com addresses can't be added as aliases. The account the email is linked to must be closed which could take 30 -60 days to become fully closed before you can use the email as an alias.
