Accessing the PlayStation Mobile portal

This recipe looks at creating a PSM portal account. For this process it is mandatory to download and use the PSM SDK.

Getting ready

You need to have a Sony Entertainment Network (SEN) account to register with the PSM portal. This is the standard account you use to bring your PlayStation device online, so you may already have one. If not, create one at before continuing.

How to do it...

  1. Open a web browser and log in to Locate and click on the Register button.

  2. Sign in using the SEN account.

  3. Agree to the Terms and Conditions. You need to scroll to the bottom of the text before the Agree button is enabled. But, you always read the fine print anyways... don't you?

  4. Finally select the e-mail address and language you want for the PlayStation Mobile portal. You can use the same e-mail you used for your SEN account. Click on Register.

  5. An e-mail will be sent to the e-mail account you used to sign up. Locate the activation link and either click on it, or copy and paste into a browser window:

  6. Your account is now completed, and you can log in to the PSM developer portal now.

How it works...

A PlayStation Mobile account is mandatory to download the PSM tools. Many of the links to the portal require you to be logged in before they will work. It is very important that you create and activate your account and log in to the portal before continuing on with the book! All future recipes assume you are logged in to the portal.
