Why Can't We Change Our PSN Names.

23 replies 377 views Edited Aug 4, 2008
I was just wondering why can't we change our psn names. We might have a better name to think of and we have no way of changing it. It just seems **bleep** to me. (No Offense To **bleep**s)

Welcome to the forums! To be honest, I don't know why we can't change them for sure, except that when someone breaks the rules, their name is the only thing you have to report.


Any spelling errors in this post are in no way a reflection of SCEA and their affilliates.

We can't change it because then there's no "true" identity to a user. What if I have a friend, and he changes his PLAYSTATION Network ID everyday. How do I know who he is? Just make a new ID if you don't like your current one so much. I'm glad PSN ID's aren't changeable.

then they should put a limit of 5 changes.

besides putting it in their pockets what does paying accomplish?  you can always make a new name. just delete the user account and re-register your sign in id on another user account.

one reason so people can't change their names and bypass the block users list. Also since every account is free you can just create a new one.

I know it's kind of stupid. I'm happy with mine but I know people who aren't happy with theirs anymore. Garnett Lee mentioned it on the 1up Yours Podcast last Friday.
