17 Replies 9,268 Views Created 29-09-2013
Have Sony said anything about PS3 gamers upgrading to PS4 being given the choice to change their gamertag to a new username?

It's not a Gamertag. Go wash your mouth out :)

They haven't said anything, though. Sucks.

You must mean PSN ID. Gamertag is for Xbox. No news at all that we can change the PSN ID to keep all your profile stats.

the amount of money they could make, people would be throwing their money at sony!

 

even with this online name, some people will like to play behind a alias and being able to change that would be great.

 

either way ill be using my online id / real name but would love it if we could have the option to change

Gamer Tag or ID  be it steam, psn, xbl, wii u and others it's all  the same thing :No-no:

 

It's a tag/id you play your games on

 

some people are more up tight than me!

 

 

Sony have said no plans to enable change

Below is a Signature



Sony are stabbing their loyal family customers in the back - We have 3 PS3s and 3 PSPs all on the same IP address and all registered with Sony. Why can't we use them at the same time anymore?

I am dyslexic, and a bad typist too. Please bear with me if my spelling's a bit off. I do try. Thanks.

X 2! Anyway i wished if at least they are going to eventually charge like M$(although i see no reason to do so) that they would allow a one time free change as i'd grab that with both hands.

They didnt say its not coming they said its a highly technical problem that their engineers have looked at but the system has not been built in a way that was intended for this. But they are always looking at a solution. Maybe one day as its a total cash cow. On 360's life span I reckon I changed mine around 15 times at a cost of £6-7 and I know people who have done a lot more than that.
