The extra funds for ID name changing would be good for Sony. One of my sons friends on xbox has changed his name 6 times already... I can't believe he wasted 60 bucks doing all that.


That's actually the best argument AGAINST it.

but seriously. Make it so Sony, it sure as hell isn't hard to do for the betterment of your community.

 

-p.s. I wouldn't honestly want to have to pay for a name change that's silly, many people look at it as a way to lure the big bad "sony entertainment" into the brick house chimney with its fire lit. Yo that's a trap big bad sony, don't do it, Make it free.

How or why would would this be a function of the console PS4 or PS3?  ...common sense tells you this would a function of the Playstation Network and having nothing to do with any console.

I think the ps4 should have the option when you first log in.

I recognize that making it free for legit users is a good idea, but, there are far too many people that would abuse the system if it were.

I hope the PS4 automatically assigns you a new PSN Id that you're never allowed to change.

I personally do not want them to do this because then it will be like XBL where hackers hack peoples account just to get the name, then take it for their own

Technically, that could be done now.

No  because on XBL they get into your account, change the name then make your name on a brand new account..... Then when the real owner calls support they will get their account back but there is no way to get your name back.... just the account.

I get what you meant but anhything is possable and if you keep asking their might just allow it someday. When i pick my user name the first time i didn't like it so i made another account what you see today. Whats funny most people don't get why i use my name and 213 yet. Its funny once their find out why i pick it. Anyway i started using my account with this name after while once i got online play games and some online cool friends. 

 

100% i love to change it but i plan on keeping it now then make new account which is waste of time to do sense i made it to PSN LV 13 now.
