Allow PSN ID Change

[ Edited ]

Personally I feel like Sony should allow id change or a fee of $10 or $20. Which is why Sony should integrate a new name-changing system into PSN. Now I know you may also be thinking: Hey, this guy's stupid. Heck, bordering on retarded. It's all his fault that he chose that extremely misleading name as his PSN ID.Well, yeah, which is why I desperately want to change my name to something else. I really have no idea whatsoever as to why I chose my name. Post-buy excitement? Anyway, when I was making my PSN for what I thought was the best video game system ever, i know my name might not be so stupid but i still would like this feature implied to the ps4.

 

 

I know many people out there would want cross game voice chat, background downloads for patches, and a better in-game XMB rather than this, and I understand, as those would be terrific additions to the already solid online foundation that is PSN. However, here is a person requesting a feature that can actually help people redeem themselves after a stupid mistake like this. Admit guys, we all make some really, really stupid mistakes every so often, and here's mine. I just simply want Sony to add this incredibly simple yet much needed feature. I would pay, at the very most, 15 dollars just to get me name changed to something a bit more decent and sane. You would not believe the amount of humiliation and anxiety this will alleviate.

 

 

I already know this is already a much requested feature, but it's one of the lesser ones. I know it's simply not as interesting as the others, and if it wasn't for my name, I would also call it a completely useless feature that will be a waste of time for Sony to implement, when they could simply be adding the previously mentioned features that actually makes their online service that much closer to Microsoft's. However, looking at a different perspective, this "useless"and "purely aesthetic" feature can actually save lives, like mine.

The One and ONLY! thing I liked about xbox was you could change your gamertag, not saying I want people changing gamertags all the time so we cant tell who people are but Iv had this Tag since the start and regret it but everyone knows how it is to loose a profile -.- I dont want to start over even if its a **bleep** profile its my profile lol.  

Is or will there be any way to change them?

This is why you never make a game-centric name or some name you know will wear thin. 

 

Any name that sounds super cool or **bleep** when you are 12 is almost certainly not going to be cool in 3 years.

 

Pro tip- think about your username before making one

Just make a new account if you hate it. They are just trophies a web page can walk you through anyway, if you think they are so important.

 

I like more than anything that people are in your dilemma, look at their name and realize they are hipster's.

 

At least you aren't

YOLO_SKUX_SWAG

or

QUADECOOPERSCOPE

 

Along with other idiot CoD names
