Re: Ps4 using real names and lacking customization again like all PS consoles b4 it...

Jul 15, 2013
I don't really like people changing their names on the fly.

Why?

In my experience, these people are very unsure of themselves and seek other's approval or feel they have to be "in" on things or else they aren't "cool". All-in-all, its childish and shows a lack of maturity.

Now, I do think there should be an option to change your ID...however, there has to be a valid reason for it and it has to be approved. Maybe something like once a year you can change your name (if you have a valid reason and the name gets approved)

Hey op, go get xbox live and you can pay 10$ and change your name alllll day.

I however agree with most of the people on here.

I have had the same username for multiple platforms and websites for the past ten years or so.

Your psn name builds up a reputation. Do you really want to throw that away to rebuild your reputation with a different name? Your name is just a tag for people to remember you by. Don 't act like you have to change it every time a new game/movie comes out.

I can be able to change my name every 30 days on another forum, but I don't go and do it that often though. Sometimes it's for laughs and sometimes I feel like it. But for the most part, I keep the name I usually go with that has the history/reputation that goes along with it.

As for here, don't feel the need to go and change it. It's something that has a history to it and it's something I don't want to change.

I personally hate my PSN ID. I actually made this account to use instead of my current one if the Playstation 4 doesn't allow for name changes because it is actually a big deal for me. I made my old PSN ID roughly six years ago and I genuinely dislike it. People have trouble pronouncing it and it has since become a pet peeve of mine to have numbers anywhere in your name. (Don't ask why, it just has) I'm okay with using my real first name in place of my ID if that's an option, but would vastly prefer an option to change it. Even if I have to pay for it.

When you grow up, youll realize more than your opinion counts and having options is a good thing. no one mentioned a 20+ year old anime etc, but thanks for not adding to the thread. like most children.

I love how asking about having more options and customization on ps4 turned into people saying how they hate people who want options to change their name and not be stuck with one or have to only use their real name turned into dbz and yugio and hating me based on examples of what some people might want the ability to do. Thanks to the few that answered what info they had and not just posting their ignorance.

 

if you had a friend who wanted to change their name after a year or 2 based on something new, Im sure they would tell you and youd have a way to tell who they were anyway. Unless all your "friends" like  changing names like popcorn and hate them and unfriend them.


The way I see it having that effects me none as I can ignore it, so they can add it all they want as long as it is optional. The biggest issue I see is with the Avatars and gamer pics. Need to find a way to enforce the rules. I'd like for the option to have people change it, it seems logical.
