From what I understood from the PS4 recent event we will now be using our real names as our users names.If this isn't how it's going to be can someone clarify ,as for one I don't wish to use my real name online.
Regarding the question in the thread if you don't like your current user name just change it unless of course something like trophys which don't Exsist and mean nothing whatsoever in reality mean something to you.
My real name is Tiny Kox so it wouldn't be very enjoyable for me to use my real name online.

Real names usage can be turned off as announced at the Game Developers Conference.

Would I change my name? Hmmmmmmmm

Then I would keep the name to keep my confidence up :smileytongue:

 

Thinking about it, if I could change it, and I was quick (depending on worldwide release and all that) I would choose what I orignally wanted, EyeballPaul :smileyvery-happy:

 

Not sure how that would work as that is already taken via PSN now, so I assume it would need to be changed by that user for it to become available.

Re: PS4 username, will you change it?

Are PSN accounts going to be carried over? I want to assume not because PS3 games won't be compatible, making the trophies pointless. Any news on this?

Re: PS4 username, will you change it?

I had assumed that the PSN accounts would carry over. Can't really think of a good reason why not. The trophy information is part of you gamer ID in my book, so I'd want that carried over even if the games don't play on the new system. I'm sure the same PSN ID is used for both PS3 and PSP now, which are effectively two separate systems.

Anyhow, the other reason for carrying over existing PSN accounts is the big unknown that is Gaikai and how that my use the data, maybe for BC purposes?

I don't think Sony have made any official noises besides optional full names, social networking integration and screen shots of abnormally high trophy counts for a brand new system.
