Re: being able to change your PSN ID

May I ask why some of you dont want this? No, the ' people will do it all the time and I wont know who's who ' is not a valid reason. If the competition can do it, I don't see why Playstation cant.

Do you guys think that in the future, we could be able to pay a small fee to change your PSN ID? Thanks Smiley Happy


My stock answer for a number of years now has always been 'no, move on, not possible, stop making Threads asking for this etc etc etc', now in my older years I have mellowed somewhat & would be happy to see Sony introduce say a once a year change of a PSN ID for say $10.00.

 

The 'trouble; with this is people would complain that it should be free or the $10.00 is too much, so what ever Sony may or probably will not do will not please everyone.

The once a year ID change for $10.00 seems reasonable.

Nobody is "against" it. Here's the thing; how many times does this question need to be asked? And is the only justification for asking this question that is now left is "but... but... but... but... but... XBox??". ? I know there is this thinking among gamerdom of "If we ask enough times and if Sony sees multiple topics all about the same thing, they'll have to do something". It won't, and it hasn't.

 

 

This is not the first time this has been asked, and you're not the only one who has asked for it. I know there are some out there who honestly believe "If I post this then Sony will notice, and I'll be the one that makes them do it, and everyone will thank me". It's a fallacy to believe that. And when you say "but.. .but.. I'll pay $5 to change my name", Well when you run up a hundred dollar bill because you can't decide on a name, and change it twenty times in a hour, then you'll complain about how it's an "outrage" that you have to pay, and you want it for free.

 

It's the same story. It doesn't matter if it's been asked one time, or the one MILLIONTH time. There's a search tool at the top of the page, and if anyone bothers to use it you'll see there are over THREE HUNDRED discussion topics about changing your PSN ID. Your computer won't go into meltdown, and your figers won't break if you use the search. It's there to help keep the conversation organized, and prevent redundant topics. Please use it.

Change PSN ID?

Jan 8, 2014
Can we please get this already? When I made my thing it was just to mess around with my real life friends and I used my email as my ID. I play a lot now and it gets annoying being called out 24/7 because a name. Xbox let my change it and PSN Japan lets you do it so why can't we?
