Re: Online ID cannot be used?

keep tryin different numbers at the end of your name maybe soon u'll get one


This is what I don't understand.

The OP said he made up an ID that was unlikely to be used and he said he added numbers to it as well. This combination is pretty hard to overlook as not being unique enough. I have seen members here say they used a long string of random letters and even those aren't accepted.

This has happened with more than one registrant, so is it possible that there are ID squatters out there and, if so, how can they register so many odd possible IDs and get away with it? Is there a way for SONY to remove these, if they are not in use?

Cheers,

    Are you still running into this problem?  I'm running into the same thing and really don't know what to do.

Yea this sucks, I just bought another PS3 for myself and can't get an online ID. Perfect timing for someone who thought that this was going to be a fun day playing COD4 online and can't get the new maps for it because I can't get into the store thru the PS3.
