Re: *PS4 ALLOW ID CHANGE*

[ Edited ]

They should absolutely allow for name changes for a fee. The "other console" does so.

In factm the reason I wanted this done was due to harrassment from users who were members of this forum, and because I was part of the first wave of Home Community Voluteers, and people kept messaging me to find out how they could become one. 

 

My time as a volunteer was over and I wanted to move on. 

I called SOny customer care and explained the situation. Even after giving them months of service without compensation, they couldn't even offer me a name change to resolve the issues I was experiencing. Even supervisors were incapable of assisting. 

As a result, I needed to create a new account. And that resulted in the following... 

  • My activation code for DC Universe Online no longer work, making the $60 game useless (It was not free at the time).
  • I lost hundreds of dollars of PS Home items resulting in me never returning to Home and never buying again.
  • The old account needed to remain in my system so I can have access to DLC through that download list.
  • The old account had hundreds of dollars in PSN and PSP games. Some would have been compatible with the PS Vita I purchased recently, but I cannot re-dowbload them on my Vita because the Vita only allows for one PSN account.
  • I also lost all of my trophies of course. WHich resulted in me replaying my old games and not buying as many new ones.

Now, no one can predict the future, and I'm very aware of that now. I don't know if I'll ever have to change my PSN ID and for whatever reason may be necessary, as a result, I buy much less from the PS Store. 

 

I'm sure I'm not alone in this. It's a lose / lose situation for both Sony's PlayStation division and consumers.

 

I'm not quite sure why a featire so simple to implement and can be profitted from has not been added in a full console life cycle.

I agree, if you want a name change you should be aloud to change your name for a fee, just like Xbox Live.

I'm sure someone here will bash you saying this had been spoken about 9 million times on the forums....

But I don't think so. I like xbox's concept of it. Where it allows you to change it. Because many Sony players started their psn's when they were like 13 and they are more mature now.

I created mine at age 14. Hence the number 14 in my name.
I chose hw guy standing for heavy weapons guy from team fortress one. People think its homework guy. So I would appreciate a change.

Hope? Yes, I do hope they allow users to change their PSN Ids sooner or later like many other services do. However, I will be keeping mine if name changing ever comes.

You won't be able to change your PSN ID but you will be able to change your display/screen name to something dynamic. Yoshida admitted that allowing people to change their PSN ID is a very difficult task
