how to link your psn impact accounts and mihoyo genshin
it is good to first note that according to mihoyo, in an official post published on the game’s official hoyolab page, in order for players to be able to make use of the cross-play feature between consoles, pc, they will need to use a psn account that never logged in to genshin impact before or an email that has never been used to register a mihoyo account.
You can see below a more thoughtful look at both scenarios, as mihoyo writes in his post:
1) If the psn account has not been used to log in to genshin impact, an email address that has been used to register a mihoyo account can be linked to the psn account.
2) If the email address has not been used to register a mihoyo account, a psn account that has been used to log in to genshin impact can be linked to this email address. at the same time, this email address will be used to register a mihoyo account.
That said, you can see how to link your psn and mihoyo accounts in both scenarios below, as presented in mihoyo’s official post:
I have game progress on ios/android/pc and would like to link my email address, which is associated with my mihoyo account, to my psn account. my psn account has never been used to login to genshin impact.
On your playstation, using your account for psn that has never logged into genshin impact before, open the game for the first time. Follow the steps in the pop-up window to link your email address associated with your mihoyo account. this will link both accounts.
case 2: I have game progress on my playstation and would like to link my psn account to an email address that is not associated with a mihoyo account. linking procedure: log in genshin impact on your playstation, then go to settings > account > user center > link account and link your account for psn logged in genshin impact to an email address that is not associated with a mihoyo account. after linking, your game progress will be shared when you log in your account to play on the same server on ios/android/pc/playstation.
As we could see above, if players use the same email to login to psn on consoles and their mihoyo account on computer, the accounts will not be able to link even if you never played genshin impact on pc the reason is that, when you log in to the consoles for the first time, the game automatically creates a mihoyo account for the player and it is not possible to link the same email in 2 different accounts.
The revelation divided a part of the community since in some cases, players will need to create new emails and accounts to play, as well as PC and mobile gamers who only played minutes on console will not be able to enjoy of the function with its main accounts.
