***Please add the ability to change your PSN ID/Name***

2870 replies 7508 views Edited May 24, 2009

Dear Sony,

We, your valued customers, would greatly appreciate the ability to update our PSN Name/ID without losing our:
    * Friends
    * Purchases
    * Trophies
    * User BANs (so cheaters can't update their names every time they get banned.)

Having to create an entirely new account, in order to update our name, is archaic and not the least bit user friendly. Your valued customers understand that you might have to put restrictions on such actions and this is completely acceptable.

You could possibly:
    * Limit the # of resets (once per month/year)
    * Charge a fee for resetting it


If you support this idea, please post below. The more exposure, the more replies. The more replies, the bigger chance Sony addresses the issue! Maybe if we get enough supporters they will offer, at least, some type of customer support to make this possible.

 

xsk8erkidx has created this youtube video in order to gain additional support for our cause. If you are a youtube user please rate up his video to get extra exposure. 

 

Special thanks to all the members who are actively trying to make the PSN a better place!

Thanks,
Bam

 

Hey guys/gals, I cannot have an ongoing list or a # count anymore as petition threads are a voilation of the rules. Sorry =(

I agree they should have the option, limit it like ones a year like the OP mentioned but it should be possible to do.

I too wish Sony gave us the ability to change our PSN ID/Name.

What errors do you speak of? I've not heard of this.

I could not agree more with being able to change your name and keeping all your goodies.  Sign me up.
