I wish I could change mine too sometimes. But I can see why it's not an option. People would abuse the option. It would create even more trolls that would harrass other users without fear or anyone knowing who they are.
how about the wbility to change your username. i know the japanese can do that, so why cant we americans do so too?
Really now? That is strange. I would think the PSN Policies would be the same all across the board.
This would definitely use up lots of data and work for Sony. However, it wouldn't hurt to change your username once in awhile! Sometimes, the same old user names get a bit old, yeah?
I've had this name since around 1973, years before the internet. It's never grown old for me.
I always tell friends who buy a PS3 with the intention to play games online to choose their PSN ID wisely. To not pick a name that is offensive or one that they will regret having made. Pick a name that sounds good, one that you might others to remember (or forget), one that reflects your personality or not. But always within the Terms of Service and (hopefully) good taste.
