    An idea for PS4

    My wife hates her PSN name now. I dislike mine to a lesser extent. We have wanted to change them but don't want to lose our trophies and progress. Something I think would be cool to see is if you decide to make a new name, you can get your trophy information back. Before you say about people stealing trophies from others, you would have an option in which you enter your old PSN name and password during the registration process. This way, if you have a name on PSN you have outgrown (like me) or a name that brings you unwanted attention online (my wife), you can get a new one without fear of starting at level 1 0%.

    Just an idea I woild like to see.

    Yeah, I personally think/hope they will allow us to change our PSN name with the new console, as I am guessing it will not just be a new console that launches, but a new PSN entirely.

    Xbox offers a gamertag change service, I don't see why they shouldn't include a similar service with PS4.

    Couldn't see any harm in this , I will keep mine thats what my mates call me and its probably the only one of many nicknames I have ever liked . On topic I don't see why you can't change it anyway .

    I mainly just want to change mine since it was a childhood nickname and the only thing I could think of at the time. My wife wants her's changed so that it doesn't say "grl" in it. She gets some really annoying messages and friend requests because of it.

    If your PSN account is set to the Japan region, you can change your account ID at any time you wish. The downside is that you can't change the region of an existing PSN account, which means that if you aren't Japanese you will need to create a new PSN account.

    Since the PS4 is Rumoured to not be Japanese made, the new PSN will probably allow anyone to change their account name.
    PSN/Steam ID is Icaraeus / 2 PS3s - 60GB 1st Gen YLOD'd 7 years, | 120GB Slim, 22 Games + Ton of Extras / PS4 500GB + 14 Games/ $1200 SuperPC since Feb14

    Why only for the Japanese region?

    or a name that brings you unwanted attention online (my wife)
    What's she called, "HotJugs24" or something? :p

    Seriously though: Are people so desperate that they feel the need to send sleazy messages to someone that has "girl" in the name?

    I don't feel a need to change my name but this wouldn't hurt anyone, so why not?

    Yuppers. I mean, people go out raping others everyday, so this doesn't really seem all that pathetic in comparison haha.

    In that perspective, it's less pathetic, but still pathetic :p

    I once got a message from someone I played Rock Band with, asking if I was a girl. That one kind of surprised me though, so I asked if s/he was in return :p Neither of us were, fyi.

    I agree with the OP, I think it's something that really needs to happen. I had hated my old account name after about a year of having it, it started out as a joke between me and a friend and it was funny for a while but I wanted to change it really badly. I finally broke down after my fat ps3 got the YLOD and created a new account, now I just wish I could bring my old trophies to my new account... oh well. I don't get nearly as much hate mail now

    If they are worried about the extra work, I suppose they could charge a fee, say 10€ per change. Would stop people changing it at a whim.
    Or once every 6 months for free.
