    Sony allows users to change PSN ID

    Being able to change you PSN username is something many people, including myself, have be asking Sony for. Now it's happening, but it might not be what everyone dreamed it would be. Some games won't work properly, data might be lost, the severity of the issue depends on the game.

    Here is Sonys list of games that have issues

    So if you have seen stuck with the same embarrassing gamertag for years now you can do something about it, I'd you think it's worth it.

    I have always hopped around usernames and never stuck with one. So, for example, but have a different username and accounts for PS3, PS4, Etc. This might be my chance to pick 1 and stick with it.

    I'm still undecided if I want to change mine. I have 2 PSN accounts, but my main gaming one is Suicidal_Vampire. Now I don't feel ashamed of the name (in fact it still sounds pretty cool), but I feel it's way too edgy that really sounds problematic at times. I need time to think if the Vamp should retire and switch over to become the Forsaken_Sheikah.

    Took them long enough to implement what I assume is a very basic feature.

    The way they built the system, fom what I understand, ties all your data to whatever your username is, instead if f your account. I guess they they thought that I would never what to change my gamertag from xX_ SuperSaiyanBobaFett_Xx (not my accual PSN ID)

    Changing my name wiped my Black Ops and Black Ops 2 stats.

    In situations like this it's best to wait until the feature is more stable. Personally I'll be leaving mine as it is.

    It's because of that why I haven't done it yet. Only select PS4 games are supported by the PSN name change. None of the PS3 and PS Vita games, which are under the same PSN ID, are supported which leads to issues like that. Considering how long ago it was they promised this you'd think they would've found a way to make it work without issues, but I'm not a programmer and console manufacturer so I know nothing.
