Why cant they make it easier to change your online id without making a new account. This seems like a common problem.

Well you're supposed to pick a name that you can live with. Mine has been the same since I started playing  Burnout 3 online in 05. Im guessing that with your name you get a lot of people saying something about you and male genitalia? If not, Im happy to be the first.

The "common problem" is people not actually caring about the name they choose... then regret it later.

I see your point with a name like yours. Your name is something that is funny at first, then becomes less funny everytime you hear it, and eventually becomes annoying. I say that you should cut your losses and make a new account with a new name. With a name like that, somebody could report you and Sony could perma-ban you. I have had a few friends that got perma-banned because they had a "Funny" name like yours.

I still think a good Ps+ feature would be a name changer. Since your sign-in ID is your e-mail adress it is possible to change your name.

 

I suggest they make this a PS+ feature because I'm sure they won't do it for free. Maybe a limit to once a month so people can't change their name over and over.

I agree with Heilke6991 ...it should be a feature for the next update. If we get enough people to bring this up maybe it will work in our favor.

If they ever offer this kind of one-time feature at a price, what it should be at a price in my POV. I think your PSN account shouldn't of had any bans or what not in the past. Not to mention they would probably do it in a way where you change your username, but no one can ever have your username again from abusement. Question is, SCE gets god knows how many new usernames daily, or even weekly. Do they really want a couple million new ones? I'm sure no is the answer. Not to mention all the tech issues that would arise with it.
