Changing your PlayStation Network Gamer Tag/Name/Id

14 replies 1525 views Edited Jun 26, 2013

i think Sony should introduce to option to change your Playstation Network Gamer Tag/Name/Id for a small fee just like what microsoft does but also having limits on how many time you can change your name in a certain time period (ex: you can only change your PSN name once a month). who else thinks they should introduce this?

And if they charged you a "small fee", you'd be complaining it should be free. They tell you to make sure you can live with your name, because once you committ yourself, there's no going back. And how many would create names that were what ever was trendy at the moment? Do we really need 10,000 people changing their name to "BeiberHater"?

 

I know you're probably sitting there thinking "I'll ask this question, and I'll get so many responses Sony will be sure to notice and they'll take action because of me!", however this has been asked MANY, MANY, MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANY times before. One more topic really isn't going to tilt the scales in your favor.

Because "but.. but... but... but... Microsoft!?" is not a valid reason. And you say that you wouldn't change it every week, but with the short attention spans that people have they'd probably change it hourly. I have a hard enough time remembering people on my friends list, I don't need it changing every ten minutes.

 

As for "less unused accounts", the people who create those accounts have the right to keep whatever they paid money for, and why would they want people just to take up screen names for the sake of it.

It will fail repeatedly if you put your effort in the wrong place. Go through the proper channels and vote on the PlayStation Blog Share.

so what if people changing their names every hour, revenue for PlayStation... i don't understand why you approach this thread in an aggressive manner. If you have a hard time remembering people on your friend's list. tuff luck, its not my problem. maybe you should add so many people.
