What do you need to do? What kind of lookup do you need?

I want to search for a user. What xbox.com has with the gamertag search. Enter a PSN name to find them.

Heisem I followed your link...it works great if you know the players exact tag, however I am looking for a player I played with the other night to add to friends. They do not show up on my "players met" and I only know their partial name. Is there a search feature that will take partial names and give a list of relevant player tags?

 

Thanks in advance.

You can search for users in the forums (just change "Board" to "Users" in the box at the top right), but I'm pretty sure it only works if they've used the forums before.  This search gives partial match results.

No.  You can see what friends are online but they won't see you and you can't interact with each other.

You guys are all wrong... 

Only those who have Registered their Account on the actual Official Website will Apear as Members in the List of Users...

I know this for a Fact, cause I myself have tried this...

Trying to add my friends to my Friends List on the Forums only resulted in 2 of my Friends being found, the rest were said to not exist, when in fact, they are on my friends list...

The only for sure way to know who this User is, is either try sending them a Message, & if their Name exists, it will apear as a Member of PSN, or you will not find any Matches... Or you can hope they Signed-Up for the Forums... 

Trust me, Note Pad is usually the best, & most reliable way to keep track of people you want to be Friends with, no other way is better...
You gotta grab their names right as soon as you meet them, cause you never know what might happen if you don't...

For Example: As you stated, they weren't in he People you met Online... Is a Good Reason to get their name as soon as you meet them...  

Agreed? 

Again, it is possible, but not likely 100% Accurate for a Website Look Up...
