online ID change

7 replies 201 views Edited Dec 4, 2013
i realize that they dont allow editing of the online id, so i can totally make a new one, but how will that effect the games on my ps3? my trophies? everything on the ps3 from that account would become unaccessible, correct? i'm the sony guy in the house...surrounded by xbox users...who can absolutely change their online ID. i'm getting a little old for my name to be bizzybud420...anybody who has any feedback about this, please help me out.

No, that account would not be unaccessible - you could access it anytime you like.  Accounts do not get deleted.

 

You cannot transfer purchases, trophies or wallet funds between accounts, though.  Sorry.

Yes, you can.

You're welcome.  Enjoy.

 

As a further clarification - it's just like if you bought a used PS3 game - you just pop it in and it'll work.  If there are codes for online gaming or DLC that were already used, well there you're out of luck.  Otherwise you're at liberty to do what you want!
