Will you be changing your PSN name now that Sony has announced the feature?
My gut reaction is to go ahead and do it, if only because the option will be available, and I can change it to match my personal branding or whatever. However, I’m cautious due to the announcement mentioning errors and such with older games, so I’ll probably hold out to see what that means in more detail. Luckily my PSN ID isn’t “xXx_NarutoCloudGoku_420” or whatever so I’m not powering through years of lingering shame like so many others seem to be.
If only someone in Japan hadn't registered it first! They are still using it so I won't be making any changes to my account. (PS. Hey Sony, when will you let me change my country of residence?)
My PSN name will never change. It has been my online handle for over two decades, long before it was ever my PSN ID. That isn’t going to change anytime soon.
I love my PSN name, so I see no reason to ever change it.
I go back and forth. On the one hand, my name does have some meaning behind it, on the other, it hasn't been my active nickname in a number of years now (plus it has numbers in it, which also do mean something, but I don't know if I like).
I may change it to match a more updated username, but I'll have to see how it all plays out once the feature rolls out wide. If it doesn't look all that stable, I'm okay keeping my original one.
Nope. I don't game online much or have many PSN friends to begin with.
It is nice to know the option will be there, but I won't be changing mine either. I already know it and frankly, it is so undesirable that I do not have to worry about someone wanting to steal it. I already had someone try to steal my Gmail address, probably due to it being short and having no numbers. I don't want to have to worry about someone trying to take my PSN account too.
Totally changing it so it matches the rest of my online monikers.
My PSN ID is simply my name spelled backwards so I see no reason to change it. But I'd eventually like the option to change my country. I moved a while back and it sucks when I can't redeem certain codes that come with my locally purchased games.
