Hey guys, i am just here to suggest to Sony to make a name changing system. I know that there are already tons and tons of posts on this particular subject, but i want to post to . So just looking at my name, you are probably already rofling (and i DONT blame you for that because it sucks). Basically how i picture it working is you could change your name once for free and then the rest of the times you have to pay $20 (or psn code). Of course, so your friends could recognize who you are, for the first 1-3 months it would have a "last name <your name here>" under your name. I know i am not the only one who is dying to have this put into psn because as i mentioned before, tons of other people have already posted saying they want it but Sony doesn't think it is important enough. I personally have thought about quitting before along with a lot of other friends (real life friends and psn friends) because this just doesn't compare to XBL's name changing service and the voice sending messages.
So anyways, if you agree, please post below for more support!
Whilst I agree to an extent that charging us say $5.00 or $10.00 to change a name 'may' be a good idea, there are at least one, if not two warnings before you click yes to accept the name when you originally chose it, so to those that chose a name you now hate, you had your chances to choose something else, & until Sony decideds to make this service available, assuming they do at some point, you are I am afraid stuck with it.
P.S. Yes there are numerous, thousands probably, of posts asking for the same thing, now there's another!
Yes there are a lot of topics on this, and normally making another would be a bad thing but in this situation I think the more topics about it there are the more it can be seen as a desired feature (and yes, I know, Sony doesn't check these forums). And so far the 1 free change + fee for additional changes seems to be the standard model suggested.
if u dont like ur psn handle, u can always just create a new one. i just changed mine about 6 months ago. i was hesitant at first because i was a level 9 with my old psn, but its not too bad getting back up there. i'm already level 8 with my new one.
Haha no thanks, i am not losing all of my lbp stuff.
Except for some of us the levels don't mean quite as much as the quality of what it took to get there. I'm more than happy sticking with my name so long as it doesn't require me redoing menial tasks like killing the 200 pigeons in GTA:IV, killing my hands on the GoW challenges, or pretty much any progress on a fighter. And I'm a Final Fantasy fan through and through but I'll be damned if I'm going to teadously obtain every item in the game and max out every weapon in XIII all over again.
meh, good point. i am aggrivated over all the trophies i earned on my old profile, all my stats on games such as MAG. thats prob the worst of it, losing my MAG character after 500+ hours of gameplay. and a lot of the trophies i have, i no longer own the games i earned them in. but my old name was dumb imo, so it was worth it. of course most of my friends still call me by my old name anyway.
