Will PlayStation Plus Let You Change Your PSN ID?

August 2, 2010Written by Corey Schwanz

Do you want to change your PlayStation Network ID? Already a heated subject, there are reasons for, and against, letting PSN users change their identity. Will PlayStation Plus bring this feature, which is actually already available to the Japanese market?

German PlayStation website PS3-Sense believes that this feature will soon be coming to the Western world. According hackers on EFnet, a major IRC networking website, this will be coming to PlayStation Plus members in the near future. Sony has never publicly mentioned any sort of ID changing system before, so, although this sounds like a welcome new ability, we have no other conformation that this will be coming. Which is odd, considering that the Japanese PlayStation audience has had the power to change their ID for quite some time. Don’t believe it? Check out the video.
