Right now it’s not possible to change your PlayStation Network username, which doesn’t sit well with users. If you made a name years ago that’s embarrassing or you just don’t like, for you can only ditch the account and make a new one because changing PSN usernames is not possible. However, Sony might finally let you do that, though, if we can believe a new report.
PSN users have been repeatedly asking Sony to allow them to change usernames. It’s one of the most highly requested features by the community and it looks like Sony might finally deliver on it.
Kotaku heard from three anonymous multiplayer game developers at three different studios who have been fixing issues and settings on their games to prepare for potential PSN name changes. A fourth source sent them documentation that is supposedly from Sony which shows a PSN profile with an “edit username” prompt next to it. The source mentioned that this image was from a document that explained how to change a PSN username.
If this is true this is great news for users. Sony could very well be working on this, but we don’t know when it will finally allow PSN members to change their username. At least this shows that the company has been thinking about its users.
