Our Opinion

As you have deleted your account on PlayStation PS4 (or PS3), it will remove all saved data, game apps, online downloads and screenshots captured by the user. This process will desert the entire PlayStation Console. Any purchased apps and games will no longer be available unless a new PlayStation account is added. Furthermore, any parental control limitations posed will remain saved and unchanged until they are changed via another account.
