    A feature I'd like to see available on PS4

    The ability to change your PSN ID.

    As people get older they change. They may not like the ID they once chose way back at the start of PS3.

    Having the ability to change this would be good. They could make it free, and have the option to change once every 365 days. That way we are not limited to the same ID we had when we were all 6/7 years younger.

    Agreed! I know many people that would love change their PSN ID! If they allowed this I would instantly change mine to satchgear!

    That would be nice, but could get out of control.

    I Hope so as well. Your account is tied to your email as a login anyway. I want to change mine. Maybe I will learn to stop using usernames with my age at the time.

    That is why I suggested maybe once a year?

    Or do you think once a year is all the time?

    It is when you have close to 100 friends! Although it would at least make it less ridiculous than XBL

    You can change your ID by making a facebook account.

    God I HOPE they let me change my PSN ID. I think MS lets you do it once for free and then charges you either $5 or $10 to do it again after that. That would be fine with me. When I got my PS3, since I'm an IT guy I just hooked it up and started playing- not reading anything on it. As a result I got stuck with my login name (and thus PSN name) that I really didn't want, only to later find out that I couldn't change it. By the time I realized all this I had some purchases, etc. that I would have had to give up in my only way to change my PSN- making a new account and using that account.

    So I really hope we can change them on the PSN. The system should be smart enough to still keep my on my friends 'friends list' even if I change my ID. It's simple enough with emails, etc. I do think there probably should be SOME restriction on this though. I wouldn't want people changing their ID's every month or even every week like I think some folk would do. Once a year or every other year is good enough in my opinion; or like MS, let it change once for free and then charge a small fee thereafter. That would keep people from changing their ID as often as they change their clothes!

    No one's seen any statement on the ability to do this? I'd think this would be one of the big questions journalists would be asking since it was one of the highest requested features on the PS3 this generation.

    All you have to decide is what to do with the time give to you....

    I'd rather have some way of getting the system to accept that both my gaming handles are the same person, just used for different purposes. All my trophies are on one account and PSN+ is on the other, which means the account with most need for cloud saves isn't the one getting them. It was made even more annoying once I got a Vita since you can only install PSN+ titles on the account that has PSN+. The me that pays for everything should be some sort of master account, and the game handles should be subordinate parts of that master.
