★★★ Newbie


I would like to unlink one of my PS3 accounts from an origin account, so I can link it to another one, and have all 3 (along with my xbox) profiles linked together so that I can get my medals etc.. on my new account. How can I unlink an account? i know how to re-link it once its unlinked

For some reason the gamertag associated with my account is not mine. Is there any way to have it removed and I add my gamertag or you guys can replace it yourselves?  Gamertag=xEvilx BumBle B

Greetings everyone,


As outlined here:


If your console IDs are connected to different EA Accounts or to an incorrect account, it may be possible to have an EA Advisor transfer certain items for you. However, doing so can result in permanently losing data from your EA Account, console account, or both. You can find more details on the risks of persona transfers here.


If you have multiple EA Accounts with console IDs connected to them and you want the console IDs to be on the same EA Account, an EA Advisor can move the console account for you*. You will need to verify ownership on all accounts involved.

Please note: moving a console ID will cause you to lose your game status and progress, items purchased and/or earned in your games, content that you have associated with one or both accounts, and access to certain online services for games. Your EA Advisor can tell you what you will lose based on your account information.


If you have multiple EA Accounts with games or content on them but your console IDs are connected to just one of them, contact an EA Advisor. They can transfer your games and other content to the EA Account that is connected to your console IDs.

Please note: Doing this may result in the loss of progress, saved data or stats from your games. This includes any content you have saved to the Origin Cloud, any multiplayer progression, and potentially offline save game progression.


*EA Advisors cannot transfer your console ID to an EA Account that already has a console ID of the same type (Xbox LIVE gamertag or PlayStation online ID) attached to it.
