Your Name in Home

18 replies 50 views Edited Apr 22, 2007
When in Home, can you choose a name or does it use your PSN ID? Or is it to early to tell.

In the trailer, I saw names with numbers at the end, which would indicate your PSN ID, but I also saw full names so I would think you can chose between your PSN ID and a display name.

I don't think so. Home is an online service to be used with PSN. It's going to use your PSN ID. Oh, and that was just a trailer.

It would use your PSN account's name, I don't see any reasons why you'd have to make a separate name to use in Home

Home will use your PSN ID but you will have the option to use any desired display name.

The Playstation Network ID feature is incorporated so you can interact further with people you meet in Home. Although you can use a chosen name, it would be weird while you and some friends are hanging in a room, then launch into a game, for example, Resistance. You were sitting on a sofa with "David" and "Sally" but now you are shooting Slayer479 and Darknezz3

It's really hard to confirm whether we will be able to choose a desired display name instead of your PSN ID. How do you account for duplicates. For instance, seeing multiple Jane or John Does. 
 
Remember many Sony employees were in the trailer; some had SCEE before their name not to mention Sony may have used NPC (non player control characters) to give the appearance what Home will be like with lots of ppl.  
 
My bet is that PSN ID is the only display name.

I dont think sony will want to implement a whole other name system. I am 98% sure that it will be PSN ID.
