I only ever hear this complaint from people with poopy PSN ID names.

Put thought into it before creating it.

 

Example:

"TooCool" is probably happy with their PSN ID.

"TooCool12345" is probably not. Smiley Tongue

 

 

Your PSN ID is fine, OP. No numbers, underscores, etc. Just "dreken." What is wrong with it?

are u ppl serious? the ppl that are saying "no we dont need it etc" 

 

NO maybe YOUUUU DONT NEED IT. 

 

what if u was a kid and u had CoolKid12 and now ur 24 and ps8 came out and u cant change ur id!? so ur stuck with CoolKid12 at the age of 24. whack no excuse. its simple give us a name change option for a small fee like xbox does it. if u dont want your name to be change then dont change it. 

 

ppl are saying "sony are unable to find us after we change our id.. what?!! psn have options to track us like EMAIL! and psnid is not a bank account thats a terrible example. BUT  same thing, bank ask u for ur account number u say " i forgot" they say ok another way to track it. whats ur soical secuirty number and ur secert answer or pin number. 

 

then some one said "psn said be careful on how u choose ur name" ooh ok so lets say im 9 years old, imma call my self CoolMan12 for future name cause i cant change it later. lol **bleep** nooooo.

 

 

PS should allow us to change our name with a small fee like xbox live period.

Well you should have put more thought into your name then.

 

If you were allowed to change your screen names this is what I think would happen. Some... shall we say "enterprising" individuals will start creating numerous PSN ID's on their accounts. With those ID's tied up, they will undoubitly SELL THEM. Many more still, because of the fickle nature of people, will change them every week, or every day, or even every hour. Because as well all know, "gamers" when given an inch, will more often than not take a light year.

As it stands there are thousands of usernames that have been claimed and are no longer in use. In my house hold i can think off the top of my head atleast 5 usernames that are now rotting to die, you cannot even delete your account so the old username can be freed up!

The fickle nature of "these" people lead them to create an account, grow tiered of it and create another making less usernames available.

Use your brain, no one is asking to have the ability to change their username every week day or month.. they are asking to be atleast able to change their username ONCE or pay a fee to be able to do it (as i said i just want to change a caplital letter to lowercase). Your arguement is weak. I don't see an underground black market for xbox gamer tags.

If they were to charge you to change your user name, then I would imagine the more ADD afflicted among us would run up HUGE bills changing their names every week, day, or even hour.

 

Furthermore, there already IS a veritable black market in XBox Live user names, you just have to know where to look for them, and not be in denial of it's existence.

 

Sony gives you ample warning that once you create a name, you can not change it. So why not put some thought into coming up with a name you will actually be able to live with long term? I know that deprives many of the ability to say "C'MON SONY!!" and "But... but... but.... but... Microsoft??", but it's not difficult to come up with something unique and expressive of your individuality.

Xbl accounts with 3 letters (the lowest number allowed) sell for hot cakes on hacker websites. I saw one that was like ehw or something that sold for 500$ just cause its rare lol.
