Yeah like I said before. I would be more than happy if I could change my name, even if they charged me. I thought this ID up in about 30 seconds in a rush to get online and now I feel trapped with it.

People in Japan are already doing this for FREE and anytime they want.  No wonder why we are getting charged $1.99 for a theme, because people will pay for anything.

On  a **bleep** account you can change your name on the xmb but when online it displays the name you first  choose when you made the account

 

 


You talking to me? I know you can't change it.

or maybe if you decide to change your name they can put a little check box beside the confirm button that says "since you are changing your online ID, your friends may not know who you are. Do you wish to display your name out from your online ID on your friends' friends list? ex: WSW113 (Will_Wyco)

Well if they did it correctly, your name would automatically be updated on your friends' buddy list, and send them a message saying something like "Hey your friend Bamfinator, has changed his name to NewnameXX123" I think that would be sweet.

@ grashopper yes-- sorry :smileytongue: i misread  ( i'm tired only had 4 hours sleep yesterday :smileytongue:

 

@peetsuh  if you would of read my post propley .. i said they can change there name on the xmb  but online it displays as your name that you choosen when creating the account  .. so the id change really is only for xmb/messaging.

Don't just sign the thread, kudo the OP so the thread is more visible, especially to admins, etc.

 

I support this.  And I kudo-ed it.

 

Maybe 1 change anytime after 1st creation (i.e.--you hurrily make your ID, get online, decide it sucks, give you 1 free immediate do-over), and then after that you can only do it once every...3 months?  6 months?  12 months?

 

If they want to limit how many people want immediate do-overs, during ID creation it should give you a link to hop out to a leaderboad website so you can get a feel for what kind of names are out there.
