They did to me. First of all I logged into my 3 year old name and couldnt said it would send me an email to set up new passowrd.. that email address no longer works. So I make a new name welcome back package hits and nothing. WTF. Now everything from the old name including purchases gone and cant even access the  welcome back package.

You need to set the old one back up and then change the email address to get the pkg and you old items, because everthing is under that name.

Maybe it's just me but how exactly did Sony do this to you?

You're the one that was using a old email address that you no longer have access to. Pretty sure you can place the blame squarely on yourself.

Agreed 3. I DID NOT have to access my other email adress at all. All I needed was my password. When I had to change my password because of the update I didn't need to go into my old email either, just the actual email address and my old and new psn passwords.

I think the reason so many people are having problems with this is trying to do it through the PC.  I changed my email and password straight through my console and guess what, not a single problem! I don't see why people are trying to do it online when you don't need an email confirmation for them to accept it if you do it through the same system you registered with the PSN!
