A Quick Question About PSN ID Emails and Purchase History

[ Edited ]
2 replies 168 views Edited Feb 21, 2013

I'm not going to ask if you can change it since the answer is pretty clear at this point after fishing around Google for the answer.

 

My question is if I delete my current account will I be able to reuse my current email to choose a new online online name or is the name itself tied to the email address I'm currently using?

 

If it is possible to change my online name this way, then will my purchase history also be transferred since I would be using the same email? If it weren't for the purchase history then it wouldn't be a big deal but I'd rather not have to repurchase everything just for a name change.

 

I'm sorry if this seems like a waste of time but I honestly couldn't find anything that answered these particular questions.

Sorry no. You can delete your account, or you can change your email on your account. It won't matter. Your download history is linked to your account, not your email. Sorry, there is no way to change your PSN ID name, or transfer your download history to another account.
