Re: Change PSN id?

Jun 12, 2013

I believe with ps4 we are going to be able to display our real names, this will require us to input that name first. If I was you I would just put your desired PSN ID into that new field and call it a day.

I wish everything was tied to your email so you could make a new account with same email and your purchases and trophies go with it

would be nice to change name so i can keep all the games with playstation plus.  before plus you could just make a new name and it didn't matter.  now it seems this should be an option.  whenever i see the name it annoys me but i want to keep my plus games. would gladly pay for name change like other services.

they copy'd microsoft with the trophies, why not do the same for the name change ? 

they seem to have all the good ideas, just copy them and make them better


Sony never copied MS, we have Trophies they have achievements.

trophies are a copy of microsoft achievement points they work the same way you just get one point versus 20-100 points for achievements the acheivements and trophies are the same for each system to earn them as well.  So technically they did copy microsofts idea but modified it so it didnt look the same.

I too find myself wanting to change my online ID. Making a new account wouldn't be an issue if it wasn't for the fact that I am currently at level 15 on my trophy progress. I can't bring myself to start all over again to try and get those platinum trophies. I've dumped hundreds, if not thousands of hours into my games and can't let that be thrown away. Hell, I'd pay for an online ID change in a heartbeat.

I'd also pay to change my username. I got my PS3 back when I was an E4 in the navy and foolishly incorporated my rate into my username. I've long since advanced past that, but on psn I'll always be a UT3. It's extremely bogus and would set up a new username but, like many others have said, I have no intention of throwing away the countless hours I've spent trophy hunting. Hell, even if I did, some of my games shut down their online modes so I wouldn't even be able to regain some of my online trophies. I love Playstation, have since PS1 and always will, but this is a pretty major bummer. Hopefully PS4 allows username change.
