It’s not possible to change your PlayStation Network username. If you made one years ago that’s embarrassing for you now then the only option you have left is to ditch that account and make a new one because as it stands, changing PSN usernames is not possible. Sony might finally let you do that, though, if a new report is to be believed.
It goes without saying that many PSN users have been repeatedly calling on Sony to allow them to change usernames. It’s one of the most highly requested features by the community and it appears that Sony might finally deliver.
Kotaku hears 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 the scribe documentation claimed to be 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.
Sony might very well be working on this but it’s not known at this point in time when it will finally enable PSN members to change their username. At least this goes to show that the company has been thinking about making this happen for users.
