Creating a Roblox Account on PS5
Once Roblox finishes installing on your PS5, you’ll be prompted to either create a new Roblox account or link an existing account.
Creating a new account is simple – just enter your preferred username, password, and date of birth. Roblox usernames are unique across the platform, so try a few variations if your first-choice name is taken.
If you already have a Roblox account, browse go to the account page and login directly using your credentials. This will securely link your account to your PlayStation Network ID, merging your friends, avatar items, game progress, and more.
Either way, be sure to enable two-factor authentication for your Roblox account to add an extra layer of security.
