The online ID cannot be used

2 replies 883 views Edited Aug 4, 2013

Hello.

 

It's a very strange problem, so I decided to write here.

 

So, I tried to create a PSN account - however, an error appeared, that this ID can't be used. Because I want to use very unusual name, that is available on every other site I ever registered except PSN, I created another account just to try if the desired nickname is really used.  So I went to this sit: http://us.playstation.com/community/mytrophies/ and typed there the name I want. Oddly enough, it shows me there is no user with that nick. I thought if it doesn't violate rules. Because it's compound from two words, I tried to verify each word separately. Both words are registered, so it means it doesn't violate them. Then I really don't understand why I can't use wanted nickname, I use it on every other site.

 

Thank you for any answer, I don't know what to do.

Welcome to the PlayStation Community.

 

You'll never know why some PSN ID's canmot be used & some can, even though it may appear to not violate the terms & conditions there may be another reason why Sony / the system doesn't allow it, sorry.
