Name Change Inquiry

[ Edited ]
7 replies 223 views Edited May 1, 2013

Hello there, I am posting here to know if there is a way to change the name of one's account and how to go about doing so. I ask this as I wish to do so. This is primarily due to the fact that my PSN ID "Fgtr4Life" (read Fighter for Life) is constantly bastardized as **bleep**got 4 Life, and I am getting quite sick of it. I made this account years ago and never realized it would receive so much crap simply due to the fact that nobody would notice the "R" in the name. If someone could tell me how or put me in touch with someone who could help me change my name, I'd be greatly appreciative.

Haha nice name. You're stuck with it, unless you want to create a fresh profile and start over.

Sorry but once created a PSN ID cannot be changed or altered in any way, you only option is to do as johngie has said & create another, but you'll lose your trophies etc.

Just jumping in add a 3rd confirmation to this. You cannot change your name without creating a new account, yes you lose all your trophies associated with your current account. Bummer I know. Good luck with your decision and if you do decide to make a new account, choose wisely!

When you created your ID you own it for life. Just ignore anyone that makes fun of your ID.

Understandable but just so you know if you do create a second account on your ps3 anything you purchase on that main account will automatically transfer to the second account on the same system. So you could buy things on it until you cancel the subscription to plus and play it on the other account. When you cancel the account just add it to the other account.
