If you are one of the lucky users who has received their PS4 as a Christmas gift and don’t have a PlayStation Network account, you will have to wait a while to get it made and activated as the account activation and verfication system is currently experiencing issues, confirmed by the PlayStation Support account.
In a tweet sent by the @AskPlayStation Twitter account, it was confirmed that users who still haven’t received their account activation email need to wait a while as the emails are delayed.

This hasn’t happened for the first time as the end of the year holidays are usually busy season and if there are lot of new console purchases, it can bring the system down. So if you are one of the new user that still hasn’t received your account activation email, you need to wait since it will arrive a little later.
You will need to use your PSN account to buy and play digital games or utilize PlayStation Plus, which is necessary for online multiplayer on PS4. So if you don’t have a PSN account, you won’t be able to utilize most of the features on PS4.
Hopefully Sony can resolve this issue quickly so that users get their account activation email soon, and can start playing their new PlayStation 4 consoles.
