PS4 username, will you change it?

43 Replies 7,248 Views Created 14-04-2013

IF sony allows you to change your user id will you change it and if so what will you change it to?

Me personally i would love to change it , ive narrowed it down to two, either baffledduck or frazzledfrog help me decide which one.

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.

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

 

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 :D

 

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.

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?

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.

sony should let us change our psn ID's. It seriously sucks being stuck with a name you dont like especially if you've put a lot of time onto that account. For example trophies, or online rank in a videogame. Theres nothing special about a psn account, it's just like a username for anything else on the internet.. like facebook.If you have the same name as anyone else on facebook it doesn't tell you that you can't use that name, its what you put on your account that matters IE pictures or trophies. But whatever I've made a new account anyway so lick my balls.

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?

Doesn't really matter, I've been using PlayerUMD since I registered my PSP with the website, and I'm okay with it so couldn't care less.

baffledduck is better

they should allow change but for the better and when i say better i mean what the consumer asks for not what sony want us to feel we should have

i would change mine but i already made a seperate account anyway ready for Ps4

There no longer called PSN accounts, there called SEO accounts. "Sony Entertainment Online" So yes they carry over, will you be able to change your ingame name probably, thought it will most likely cost.
