Dear Sony, Please let me change my PSN ID

[ Edited ]
66 replies 2411 views Edited Aug 4, 2014

My girlfriend bought me my PS3 as a present.  I wasn't very much of an online gamer.  When I chose my PSN, I let my girlfriend pick it.  (She says that sometimes I look like a lilgummibear, I still don't get it).  I didn't anticipate playing online, but now I play online all the time.

 

In short, I am tired of being lilgummibear.  I always get messages from dudes hitting on me, thinking that I am a girl.  I cannot even talk in a lobby without being shouted down for having a "***" ID.  I have endured having this PSN ID long enough, and I want to change it to something more fitting.  But I don't want to lose my DLC, trophies, online progress, and friends.

 

I really think that this is a feature that should be implemented.  I realize that some people would abuse it and change their IDs every week, but there has to be a way to prevent that.

 

I am just tired of being lilgummibear.

It doesn't matter how much you dislike your ID, they won't change it.

Your fault for letting your girlfriend pick that ID...

I can create another account, but then I would lose everything.  I think that I am going to create a new account anyways

Don't bother making a new one.

Basically every gaming company that had forums or MMOs have almost always offered an ID/Forumhandle/Name change service later on, just wait a while, I'm sure they'll have 10$ ID changes at some point.

HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! your ID is lilgummibear thats awesome bro. Good for you keep that you're the lilgummibear! Roll with that bro mad props to you man.  ALthough the OTHER BOX charges like 5 bucks to change it. I think that would be fair enough to do.

As bad as I feel for you, this is hilarious to me.  I've been in the same boat, as have thousands of people (minus the lilgummibear portion) but I just made new id's, etc.   yeah you lose some trophies but in the end, they're meaningless to anyone but you.  You know which ones you got.

 

just trying to make you feel better since you're story was so funny to me.  good luck with it man.

I've pretty much stopped playing on this account to focus on my other IDs since people kept harassing my choice of username. But lilgummibear is so cute.

In the future, don't let a girl choose your online name.
