It is not surprising that players often get their account revoked, due to the violation of Sony’s policy or if the player used unethical activities that results in the suspension of the PS4 account. There are also times when players get the penalty without doing anything illegal that causes a great deal of frustration for being unable to access the store, access payment methods, unable to turn on auto-renew, download games, or perform any kind of activity.
If you’re also facing the issues and are looking for a fix, we’ve laid it all out for you that’ll help you lift the ban and get your account working as intended. Read on more to know more about the error and what can you do to prevent it.
The cause of the error in PS4.
If you see the Error Code WS-37337-3, this error strictly indicates that your console has been imposed with restrictions that’ll make you unable to access Playstation Network and play games normally. Sony usually informs people about the reason for the ban in their email address, describing full details about the ban and the duration of it. You can also reach out to them if you believe the ban is unjust as it completely renders the console unusable as you cannot access features like PSN, online play, or any digital content or item you bought for that game.
Is there any fix?
Although there’s no permanent fix for the ban, however, you can try out a few things that’ll help you in accessing your account and allow you to use PSN and other features. Here are some of the things that you can do if you’re getting Error Code WS-37337-3.
First and foremost, you can check your email to see how long the ban will last as there’s no possible way to bypass the suspension duration, and doing so will lead to an even bigger penalty. If your console is suspended, you can’t resell it nor anyone can play games on it. Jailbreaking or hacking your console also violates the PSN’s policy and if you’re seeing the error, it means that it’s permanently banned from the PlayStation network.
Create a new account or switch account
If your account is suspended, you can still play games on your PS4 by creating a different account. To do so, follow the steps mentioned below on how you can create an account on your console to play on it.
Press the PS button, go to the quick menu and then select Switch Users.
You can now log in to a different account to play the games on your PS4.
If you haven’t created a new account, you can do so by selecting the “New User” option on the far left side.
