Is that a no? Well on some random website I found some conversation about changing your psn username. And the guy who asked the question about changing his psn username seemed to have got the info he was looking for so I geuss he changed his name. So maybe I'm not screwed. I hope...
I'll talk to Sony about it tomorrow. Or maybe I should say later today.
Don't bother, PSN ID's cannot be changed for any reason.
I'm not comfortable with my username and I don't think u understand how I'm now feeling with it. I have seen places on the Internet saying I we should be able to change our username when the PS4 comes out. And I'm not saying a display name that only I could see. I'm talking about my ACTUAL PSN name everyone else can see. Not like some fake name. A real new username. Japanese PSN users can put out a display name but I think the display name can only be seen by the owner of the account. They should update that and make it be their actual new PSN name and it would update 100% for everybody. And an ACTUAL username changing ability should be available everywhere. So when PS4 comes out or before that, we better be able to change our username.
I really don't see the option being made available, Sony has said nothing for many years about this & the fact that the PS4 is coming out in 4 months has nothing to do with it, PSN ID's will transfer over to the PS4, you'll just log in on your PS4 with the same PSN ID & password you have now.
I can see that your PSN ID 'appears' to be your actual name Mr Julian hayes, that was a somewhat 'silly' error on your part if that is indeed what you did, use your own real name that is, so whilst I can 100% understand your wanting to change it, it is not & will not become possible, your only option is to create a new PSN ID, sorry.
I hope everyone that wants to change their name is allowed to. I also hope that the only thing they can change it to is assigned to them by Sony and they are never able to change it again. I hope they automatically reassign names to everyone who has ever requested this feature.
WHY DO YOU FEEL THE NEED TO POST IN CAPS????? IT'S CONSIDERED SHOUTING AND IS RUDE AND UNNECCESSARY. YOU SEEN THINGS ONLINE THAT YOU MAY BE ABLE TO CHANGE? OKAY BELIEVE THAT THEN INSTAED OF WHAT YOU'RE SEEING HERE. NOW YOU CAN GO AWAY HAPPY.
