Reread their post Brit. They'd probably just mess up the new one too.

     I don’t see how hard it is to bring back the ability to change your PSN ID. They had the function to do it before why they changed it who knows. I don’t think it’s a question of security then again I might be wrong but seeing that the Japanese Playstation gamers can do it I don’t see why the US Playstation blocks the ability from the US Gamers. If it’s a question of money then why not make it a payment to charge to let gamers change their ID?

So, let me get this straight.  We buy the obscenely expensive console.  Name it something we thought was good when we were young.  Make purchases on the account such as games and add-on.  Redeem special edition codes on the account. So if we decide that we want a different Online ID.  PlayStation says, "We won't, even though we could and for no apparent reason. If you want a new Online ID, you'll have to give up ALL your purchases and limited redeemed codes for your special edition games."   Is THAT what's happing here?

Welcome to the PS Community.  Not being able to change your PSN ID does kind of suck - chose something like PrettyPrincePony and you are pretty much fucked ...

What really sucks is mine is super close to my actual full name, i thought it was just for the psn community not for online gaming tag......that seems like a pretty legitament reason to change it right?

Just chiming in here to ask a (probably obvious) question based on what you're saying.....If I set up a second account with new email address and account name, there's NO WAY for this new account to be linked to my current account and still have all my prior purchases such as map packs, online games, etc., right ?  That's been my assumption but I'd like to confirm it.  Thanks.
