Ps4 Real Name wont update

4 replies 348 views Edited Feb 8, 2014

i turned my ps4 on and off, put it in stand by on and off, and changed my name on and off to display my middle name and remove it to try and see if it were to update. but it still shows "Spyro Dragon" instead of my real life name in the game updates and stuff, but when you look at my profile it shows my full name. how can i make it show my actual name in the news feed update to ?1614421_684190161603216_322291166_o.jpg

I think you have to use the settings to let friends see your real name for that.. Not exactly sure because I'm 100% against the use of real name/Facebook/sharing that the PS4 uses... I do t want my real name used, I don't have Facebook, and I think sharing is just a waste of resources.

I would NEVER use my real name on PS4 PSN stuff to me I find that a little weird and I don't want weirdos asking my name if I don't know them :-) that's my opinion lol

It will fix itself eventually, I had the same issue when I changed my real name to a pseudonym. It just takes a bit for the remote server to update.
