    How Tight will the rules on Usernames be?

    I have never owned a ps3 so i dont know much about precedents but does anyone know to what extent the regulations will go on user names?

    For xample if i write the word Fock or Cuntwallis, would my user name most likely be restricted?

    Most likely. All someone has to do is flag it as offensive

    Yup, you might as well just make a normal username.

    Mine was DrtySanchez and I didn't have any problems until right after home launched. Sony contacted me and the guy I talked to found it very humorous but said I had to change it. Now many kids under 14 even know what that is lol.

    I can have

    "child tickler"

    and get away with it... So if it is within a context they accept. Then you should be fine, just do not use

    "Analoutward"

    it just does not work

    I think as long as you use different letter or words you should be fine, like that Cuntwallis, I think you should be able to get away with it.

    Would be good if they gave us an option to change our PSN ID's when the PS4 comes out, would choose a simpler ID.

    PSN in general isn't very restrictive with usernames, but all it takes is for 1 person to report it as offensive for them to look more closely at it and decide you need to change it.

    You know, you can always just take the high road and create a username that's not childish and/or offensive. Saves you from worrying whether or not it will offend someone later on down the road and being forced to change it anyways. Just a thought.

    PCs are very much like Air Conditioners.
    They both become utterly useless once you start to open up Windows....

    Pretty sure you can have whatever you want as long as it's not a blatant curse word or something like that.

    I wouldn't go for crude humor. This generation lasted 7 years. I doubt you will still find your crude humor user name funny 7 years from now. People that bought the ps3 at launch and were 15 are now 22. Im positive their sense of humor changed since they bought the PS3.
