The PLAYSTATION® Network handle cannot be changed unless a new account is created. You'll have to use a different User ID (e-mail address to sign in) and then a different online handle must be created that has not been used by any other player. Please note that you'll need to make a new user on the PLAYSTATION®3 and then sign up for the PLAYSTATION® Network under that user.

To keep the same e-mail address with your newly created account, you need to change your current account's e-mail and then sign-up on the PLAYSTATION® Network when creating your new account and use the old e-mail address originally associated with your main account. :]

No. You dont have to pay to create a new account. I have 3 total. I only ever use just the one, but i got the names in my head and had to make them. (:

If you have multiple email addresses and want to create another PSN Name, simply create another User on your system, and while under that User go to the "Sign In" and you can create your new account there.

And if you just dont like your PSN Name anymore, its the same thing. You wont be able to keep your Trophies though. If you delete your PSN Name, and use that email address to create another one, you'll lose your trophies and possibly some of your save game data that is connected to that PSN. Possibly, i dont know for sure.

Can you let your Boss know that we want the ability to change our PSN names please every year.. Because we don';t want to lose our friends, or trophies, etc. For example if a person name was MS_Vip2003, and the year is 2005.. We would like a update in that , wouldn't you agree ??
