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 "gay" 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. 


i think that's endearing. you should keep the name as is. your girlfriend put "love and thought" into it. and...providing you two are still together, you should keep the name. i mean, wouldn't it strike ire and grief into your enemies for their screen to show they've been killed by "lilgummibear"? i think that's awesome.

Yeah I'd like to change my ID too but they don't have an option for it. It's not impossible though. My friend actually got to change his ID by being banned for having an inappropriate name. He had to call customer service and tell them the new ID. The only thing that happened was his friend list was wiped so all you have to do is remember your friends.

It would be dandy, if Sony allowed us at least ONE opportunity to change our PSN ID... Maybe a paid instance?  That's an interesting question: Would someone pay to change their PSN ID?

I would pay to get my username changed. I made my account Febuary 7th I alrealy had a PS3 for 2 years. So Jason Bay was still on the RedSox. so i did my username RedSoxCrazy44. 44 being Jason Bay's number. Now Jason Bay is off the team and I want to change my username but I've spent 70$ on PSN 55 friends and 217 trophies. I dont blame u lilgummibear. maybe Sony should let us change our usernames. But wait ho would our friends know it;s us? My idea is under your new username it can say(ie formarly lilgummibear) IDK all im saying is alot of people would love to change their username

If you do create a new account with a different email address, would you still be able to download stuff that you have bought from the PS store from the old account?
