Another question about U3, if someone can answer: besides losing your MP profile, do you also lose access to your purchased DLC’s and skins? 

 

As DLC bought from the PS Store and not from the in-game store? You shouldn’t lose them.

Haha, you won't leave my dear you are already trapped like most of us here. Trophies are psychologically designed to be addictive and to release short dopamine shots in your brain so the more u have the bigger the urge to continue obtaining them and the harder it is to leave your pitiful 'achievements' behind. Unless you do something like switching your e-mail then changing password to cXb3_02w40Ctss020s writing it down on paper and then burning down in a trashcan so you'll never be able to get back on your account again (I did it with my 50 platinum account) problem is weeks, months or maybe even years later at some point in life you'll get down, feel miserable and maybe by any chance you'll turn on your gaming console again... once again you'll feel the excitement of having achieved something, the feel of being needed and you may get back to it :/

The best solution would be if Sony would let us block trophies at the very start of a game or just delete the lists we want, but they realize it's addictive and keeps millions of people playing every day (slowly letting their precious time and lives pass by hehe) so they most likely won't do it. Anyway I think overall trophies feel like a chore rather than a fun activity so I don't think you should bother getting them, at the end of the day no one significant in your life will ever care and at the day you'll die your last words will just be something like 'fuk I wish I never trophy hunted' or 'I wasted my only one life, great' haha

Just play and have fun! Cheers 1f427.png

Thats why I plan on using my old account for now on just to play games for GAMES not trophies. I didn't give a fuck about platinum trophies. If I obtained one I would be super excited and move on. You can tell from the start of this account it was a chore where I wanted to 100% every game. Wasted my young years doing so. I regret every minute. I wasted so much money on stupid games for platinum trophies. It's really pathetic. Being on my old account will be a blessing just bc I'll be playing games I DO want to play, though I'am glad I have PS3 AC Brotherhood platted on my old account. Not an easy platinum to achieve lol.

I’m talking about all the DLC packs that came for the MP, like Shade Survival, the Fort, all the maps, and the skins that you could buy for your characters, like Winter Elena, Reporter Elena, Nepal Chloe...

The DLC packs are still here on your account.

... Well, it’s rude not to answer, when someone asks you something, just like making unnecessary comments...

Ok, thanks for your opinion. I still think I am going to wait, at least while I can still find matches. My U3 profile is more important than my stupid PSN ID.

I would say "about damn time" except for all of what I'm hearing about the risk of losing your stuff. Totally contempt with my PSNID though.

It's not unnecessary. You asked if you would lose stuff from your account, he said you shouldn't, but you insisted in asking.

Sony warned that you can lose access to DLC’s and other paid online content, or didn’t they?

If the MP profile gets reset and the game acts like a new account has been created, it’s also possible that it doesn’t recognize the stuff that you paid for.

I’m also not interested in knowing what the likelihood (“you shouldn’t”) is of me losing the content. I’m interested in someone that bought stuff there, to say for sure that everything is still there.

No, it recognizes the stuff that you paid for as stuff that you haven't played before, simple as that.

 

That warning made by Sony is generic PR crap.

I'd say you're super glad to be getting rid of your Justin Bieber Swag Doctor name for good 1f601.png !

 

I am indeed. It never crossed my mind that people would look at the JB part as Justin Bieber instead of my initials.

 

Mistakes were made but I'm glad I finally got the chance to fix it.

You're on the wrong side of history, if "JB" doesn't stand for Johnny Bravo. B)

Went ahead and made the switch and can happily report no ill effects so far. I'm sure once everything is set here I'll be good to go.

Went ahead and done this name change and for the most part it works. There is one game that lost it's functionality for me and that is Black Ops 2. I can play when I'm signed out but if I want to sign in on to psn again the whole thing just crashes. Lost my online rank too as well as some weapon skins.

I was excited to change my name but after seeing the lists of games with problems I will not be doing so, possibly losing progress in Killzone, The last of us, Everybody's golf, Bloodborne and more does not sound like a good deal for changing my name. They're just the games I'm playing/want to finish, let alone everything else I want to play, oh well

I was messing with you about the Justin part 🤣, it was the first thing that came to mind when I saw your original name :P.

You are one of the many people that thought of that when it came to the JB part. That's why I had no problem believing you lol.

I changed my Name and one of the Games with heavy Problems that Sony mentioned was Everybodys Golf. After I changed my Name everything was fine. Progress, Items, Qualifikation Count for the actual International Tournament, Statistics offline and online, no Problems in this game for me. I had no DLCs for this Game. The new Name showed up in the Online Mode with no Problems. A new secret VS Character showed up (100 Birdies). That means this Progress was okay too.

How does your old Account have 0 Trophies? I changed my Name and my old Account Show all Trophies, the new one too.

 

I think it will take time, but I also noticed your old account has no trophies. I'm talking about Sega-Ryudo.

Because we don't want numbers in our names, like Kids do it.

Could someone test "Castlevania Harmony of Despair" on PS3, please? That game was probably built with ID change in-mind, it was possible in-game with the JPN version.

Changed mine yesterday, no problems with PS4 & Vita, though when I went to log into my PS3, I noticed underneath folders (PS2 and PS1 classics etc), there was a new one titled "corrupt data" at 2.6gb roughly. Not sure what exactly got corrupted though as everything seemed okay including saves, though that may be due to having backed everything up with PS+? Might be something to look out for just in case!
