    So according to a post on Facebook PSN has finally added the ability to change your PSN ID. First change will be free but i don't have any UK or Euro prices for after.

    EDIT: So its live for the US today and for Europe from tomorrow.

    About time, how about emojis things on the virtual keyboard as well, you can do some much more with Xbox.

    Re name change, I wonder if I can get badmotorfinger or maybe duffmotorfinger ?

    Just seen this from Oct last year:

    The first PSN name change will be free of charge, but “changes after that will cost $9.99 USD.” The option to change your PSN name will cost $4.99 for PlayStation Plus members, Sony said. “Changes to online ID can be made through the Settings menu or via the Profile page of your PS4,”

    Assume the Uk prices will be similar, I think Xbox charge £8 ?

    I don't know why anyone would want to change it more than once anyway. I've been looking forward to firing my old one into the sun for about a decade.

    It seems like you can revert back to your old one, for free, if you so wish anyway.

    Doesn't this whole name change bollocks come with a fuckton of caveats to it?

    Namely, online support, save game issues, older game support, dlc content shenanigans etc. Lots of old games tied your primary key (PSN ID) into savegames, dlc sub permissions etc.

    'm pretty sure this is why the first ones free and also a free one time reversal if games you still want to play dont like the change.

    What happens to ME3 multiplayer profiles, e.g. ME3 co-op multiplayer? Is there a list of PS3 games with issues? The Sony site only seems to list PS4 games…

    It's a deterrent for possible ways to abuse

    Not surprised on no legacy platforms support. Especially with the Vita.

    Since they're not releasing old IDs it's a shame they didn't use the opportunity to add extra characters allowed in IDs. Spaces would have made a big difference for instance.

    Glad this is finally possible, I’ve been stuck with Analisis since 2009.

    Why couldn't they just make it a display name but everything is still tied to the PSN you originally signed up with?
