PSN account screen names cannot be changed after the account is created, for any reason.  It is a Sony policy.  You can change your Sign-In name that you log in with whenever you like, but the name that people see online is permanent.  And by permanent, I mean that you can't delete PSN accounts either.

I know that the Japanese can change their PSN Username but not their PSN ID. That's why your friend can do it.

Yeah you definitely can't change it.  I wanted to change mine, but it seems the only way is to start a new psn id, which sucks cuz you'll have to start every over again.

Japanese accounts can change their display name.  I really don't think Sony is bringing that feature to us.  With so many updates they've give us so far, they still haven't given us that one.  And people have been requesting it for a long while already.

 

I also don't see them changing their policy to let us change our PSN ID name entirely, without creating a new one.  I have no problem with it, the name I use is great.  Put some thought into it, and I like it.

 

I do fear one day someone will "report it as inappropriate" and under that circumstance, if Sony gets involved because people report a name as inapproprtiate, I would have to change it.

 

That is the only circumstance under which Sony allows a name change, and transfers your stuff to the new account.  Otherwise, no go.

ChangoJuan, you can't. Your friend probably has 3 accounts. But what you say is true, then he must know something we all don't know. He won't spill the frijoles because what he says is false.

Actually, yes Japanese accounts can change their names.
