For the longest time, PlayStation users have been forced to stick with the original PSN name that they may have created over 10 years ago. I for one am wishing this could happen since the name I chose its kind of outdated now. Well Sony might be finally allowing us to change our PSN name in the near future thanks to a rumored new survey that has been released.
AllGamesDelta on Twitter showed a message that Sony sent out to users. It said the following: “PlayStation have been exploring the possibility of adding a feature to PSN that let’s users change their ID. Before any of this though, they want to understand if gamers are interested in this feature or not.”
“Please remember the topic and contents of this survey are for your eyes only and not to be shared with anyone else. We can’t be sure whether this feature will be added or not, but we can be sure your opinions will be heard.”
This news should come as a rumor mainly because the wording in the message feels a little off. It’s not written in a typical fashion from a big company. Usually more PR buzzwords are used and it’s written in a more formal manner. This message sounds informal and uses terminology that normal people speak in, which is different to the usual big corporation messages.
That said, many users have been wishing to see their PSN names get changed for over a decade now. Sometimes people change and grow up so we should be able to our names as time goes by. After all, some people may have chosen an immature sounding name as kids, but want this to be changed once they grow up. Anyway, hopefully the real Sony finally let’s users change the PSN name!
