Re: can you change your psn name?

Take a look at my name and have a guess :smileysad:

 

 

Spoiler
That means no unfortunately :smileysad:.You can if you have a Japanese account though. Your new so you won't be losing many trophies etc.  Just make I new user account on your PS3 and make another PSN account.

you can change it to appear different on the XMB only. so it's not a permanent change as far as i'm aware

No unfortunately you can't. My PSN was after my xbox gamertag. But now I am stuck with it :smileysad:

Doubt you can change it. My PSN ID is pretty bad (used to own a Nissan Micra, until i wrote it off!) but hey at least i can play online even though i have a rubbish PSN ID! Playing online is one of the most important things to me.
