I can't be bothered with that. Can't you just tell me instead?

30-40 thousand votes? Thats a hell of a lot of dough to be made from name changes. They should totally do it.

I like my username, that isn't my problem. Also, i don't want to petition i can't be bothered with the hassle. I just asked because i think we should be able to change it if we want to.


Then why did you even start this thread?  There was no purpose for it. These are the kind of threads that should immediately be locked.

Did Sony finally figured out how to monetize the changing of gamertags? I would gladly drop 10 bucks to change my tag. I should have of seen this coming moving from Xbox. :/

Some people suggest to have many people file a report on my name so Sony could force me to change it but im not risking the ban and losing the achievements. I also dropped a lot $$$ on certain games so making a new one is not an option for me either. :/ meh

No, you can't change your PSN name.

 

Also note, Sony investigates all reports, even if you get a bunch of people to report you, Sony still investigates, if they don't find that your name breaks the rules, then they won't ban you. In fact, false reporting is a bannable offense, so even if you get your friends to report you, they risk getting banned themselves for false reporting.

 

Also, even in the cases where Sony does a name change due to a name ban, there are often alot of problems associated it, and it wasn't really changing the name on your account.

There are 50 million PS4 users and 40 thousand is not even 1% lol. You need to learn math.

Re: Username

Can't. They told you when you created your name that it can not be changed. There it is plain as day, right at the bottom. 

 

 

PSN ID screen

 

 

If you want to change your name, you'll have to create a new account.
