Looks like some interesting things are on the horizon for PS4 users, as new information about a PSN name change option and the video tools included in the upcoming PS4 update has been leaked.
I don't think I'll ever change my PSN name, too many good memories attached to it
I think I would agree, but it would be a good option for some people who made interesting name choices and are now re-thinking their name now as they get a bit older.
i'll never change mine either. same as my username here. had it for way too long. edit: interesting name choices, that might be an understatement for some XD
I would like to change mine. Not a big deal if I can't, though. I really want to be able to change to a main account, though. Being a sub-account is annoying, but I have too much stuff tied to my account to just make a new one at this point.
Well, I like that I can use real names with people I actually know, which is nice since we call each other by name anyhow and not by "xXKillerSniperEliteXx&qu ot; Or at least so my name is actually legible, dropping all the 1337 5p33k.
I don't mind mine, but I've been wanting to change it for years. I think I'd have it match my Twitch name, DrSparklePants.
About time the PSN community gets a feature the XBL community has had for the better part of a decade. I had an account years ago Lethal Sodomy lol, "You were killed by lethal sodomy" haha, it was great
Surprise, surprise, alexkoepp trolling, as usual, as thats all he does. He's always either trolling or sweating MS. Poor kid, he takes this stuff way to seriously
Would've liked this feature before i made a new account.
My name is Miktheking75 back in the day when I played cod I was king. When those losers that took the game so seriously and lost they always got angry and called me Mikethequeen, or they just screamed my name out. Those my memories, time for me to have a screen name change.
agreed, So many Tea Bag done under this name. I have to keep it.
I feel you....I can't and would not change ProPaperPusher...it's a classic.
I support name-changing as long as it isn't as casual as changing our avatars. Otherwise if this gets implemented friends will be constantly changing their names based on their current mood of the day, and trying to remember who is who will be a major PITA.
I would think it would be a one time only option
Either that or do what Xbox does and just charge you $10, that alone would stop people from doing it TOO often. (I had a buddy on XBL that changed his name with the damn seasons -_-)
"friends will be constantly changing their names based on their current mood of the day," Understandable, but remember we can also set our PSN ID to be viewed as our real names from friends. Regardless, I have been waiting a long time to change my PSN ID.
know people have been asking for this feature so im sure there are going to be people out there that want it.
I would like for a country/region change, to keep using my same account everywhere.
Who is Sony Vegas Devs. I live in Las Vegas and I am not aware of any Sony Studios here and I dont want to give dualshockers the hit to even remotley find out.
Sony Vegas Pro is a software editing suite, however it is more of a consumer product than a professional tool (I'm a filmmaker and know many professional editors including myself, none of whom use the software).
More insiders...get rid of one...three more pop up
This one has been around for a while. Actually a while longer than many others.
For some reason I just don't like the idea...u quote them and believe them and use them in arguments and then it turns out not to be tru and u look stupid...It's just to many of them that's all...no disrespect to anyone @ abriael I can understand that...
I don't "Believe" anyone. I don't even "believe" official press releases at times. Tho, some people are more credible than others, so they're pretty good sources for rumors.
Tidux is legit. Here's an old thread where he provided a ton of information on the PS4 OS before it was known. http://www.neogaf.com/forum...
any info on whether it's going to be a paid service or whether they'll allow you to do it for free?
So how do insiders affect your life :/.
Eh, I like rumors. Particularly the ones that seem feasible enough to be true. It gets people talking which can lead to good discussion.
"Cut off one head, and three more will take its place" P.s. Hail Hydra
Every industry has them. They are a vital part of the news making process. In sports, politics, business, especially tabloid journalism, it's the insider that usually leaks the BREAKING NEWS. They just don't always call them insiders. They call them "a source connected with...". But, it's the same idea. That being said, I understand the trepidation that you have about them and their overall track record for being correct. I just say take it as a rumor until it's confirmed and don't get too excited.
Interesting. The ability to change your PSN name would be great.
Changing name is great, but what to choose? Everything is already been taken. And numbers after a name looks so lame
Please, I'd love to change my PSN from bountyhunter_ 123 to PrinceOfAllSaiyans or Saiyan_Prince. With a Vegeta avatar.
Ha, do you have any DBZ games on PS3? You may be able to get a gamer pic from one of those. :)
Oh man, the ability to change names. one can dream...
Fingers crossed that it's free if true!
I doubt it. However it will be crazy if it was free.
Nice... I don't want to change my PSN ID......just make a small edit to it
I want to change mine, and I want to change it now :) I hope this is true!!!!!!
I would love to change my psn...this time not putting my real name in it lol.
I agree my psn id is my real name as well. I hate it cause I feel I need more privacy these days.
name change was needed YEARS ago. I have changed my PSN ID about 5 times. All the stuff I bought with each name is forever gone.
forever gone? what? just download all the games from each acc and play them on your main.
I'll change my name 'cos I put my year of (2 digits) birth in it, and part of my real name, only shortened, now I don't really want it seen....hope it's true!
Its crazy you cant change your name, even crazier that Microsoft charges for it. On Steam & Origin i can change my name at any time for free, i have no idea why it's such a problem.
Improved video editing functionality sounds great, especially with the share features being so popular.
Made mine a long time ago in which I had a slight ego, putting a fair few Xs in my name. So would definitely welcome this addition . :D
Sony better fixes the headset support. Some things need to be fixed asap: 5.1/7.1 sound via usb optical sound input and usb mic/usb soundcard support at the same time optical sound and mic support via dualshock 4 jack I could go on and on. The headset support is garbage compared to the ps3.
Garbage compared to PS3? In what way?
wow my headset seems to be working just fine for me And I bought the best ones they had on the market. Must be a individual thing.
yipppy, been freaking waiting to change my name. id pay for that
Sony pls make this happen
OMG!!!! i can't wait to change my name. The name i have now is so embarrassing and has haunted me for years since i made it at the launch of the ps3 please. God let this be true
So what is it?
i can't say it too embarrassing
"Name change option in the work". Fingers crossed this is true. I wouldn't even mind paying for this option, just like on shitbox.
I really hope this is true.
I'd love for Nintendo to do this too. Made a spelling mistake when I created Nintendo Network ID and all games you buy digitally are tied to it and the NNID is tied to your console.
Ugh. I made a new PSN when i switched from PS3 to PS4 just because how sick i was of my name.Now, i bought all my games digital on PS4 and have PS+ for my new account. This is so annoying :/
Well why didn't you just wait it out and see what happened? I've seen the same thing from a lot of people. Did you all really make such bad names? lol what was the immediate rush?
I'm hoping Sony don't do it like M$ and charge us for the Name Change
I have never changed my XBL gamer tag and will not change my PSN one either, but at least there is an option on XBO to do this. From the looks of this rumor then PSN will have that ability too soon! MS charges $8 USD for a name change. Let's see what Sony does.
It should be that name change can be done only once. Otherwise people would just keep changing and changing. Or then add a long time limit to it. Or charge for it after the first time
If Sony Vegas actually worked on the editing tools, then holy hell..
Sony Vegas <3.
I really hope you'll be able to change your PSN name
Have no need to change my PSN Id, but being able to change your name would be cool feat to have. Though if you can change your name will Sony charge you for doing it or make it where you can only change your name once a year.
This would be amazing I wanna change mine so bad my name has attachments to my ex wife lol
