So I wanted to make my main account on PSN that I have used for years.
It told me the account was taken. I then added that account to my friends list on another PSN account, it told me the name didn't exist...
(spelling, spacing, etc. was all correct)
So with that info, I called Sony. At first they confirmed that the PSN I wanted was an available PSN. They gave me some stuff to try, still couldn't make the account.
Eventually, on the third call to Sony, the guy puts me on hold, comes back a couple minutes later, and tells me that the PSN I wanted, isn't taken, but it is not allowed to be made by anyone....also saying that this is the first time he has ever come across this situation...
Anyone know why this would be? Or is the PSN I want the only name on PSN that no one is allowed to have....?

Um, yeah, I never heard of such a thing.
Perhaps you should try an ID that is less profound. Creating a PSN ID has become a strange new art form or something. You should check out THIS thread. It can give you some insight as to how us regular people pick an ID.
Just trying to help.

It was just a simple ID.
two words, with an underscore inbetween. Follows all the rules.
Heck, the first person I talked to at sony told me it was available. I just don't know why this one account is unavailable to be made.
The reason I want this PSN so bad is because I have used it for years, on PS2 games and the such.

I'm new to PS3, only have had it for a few months. Havent used the account or anything.
It is rather unfortunate though. Even worse so, cause no one I have talked to about this, has ever heard about it.
