Information on PSN ID Name Changing & Your PSNProfiles Account

922 posts in this topic

Updating your old or new name should now convert to your new name.

Updating an old name should no longer switch it back and present an error "User has changed their PSN name, we do not disclose the new name for privacy reasons."

 

All older issues should be considered fixed, post if you have new ones.

 

Edit: It would be useful if someone who changes their name, updates their old name and details what they see/any issues. Also someone who changes their name and updates their new name.

I got it now, thank you.  I thought I would’ve had to do a lot of messing around on my Playstation settings.

Hi, let me ask you a question: How do I change the forum nickname? Do I need to be a premium member?


Yes, it’s a perk of being Premium

I would like to "Update" my old name to my new one but the site says it can't because it says:

Error
Updating is disabled due to maintenance

I was thinking of changing my PSN name but I'm worried about losing DLC or games I've purchased. Does that really happen?

No, on my purchasing account, I have over 4000$ purchases and they are all there after I even change name multiple times.

The only thing that you might lose is some saved game data on some games, that mostly date back to the ps3 era.

If you have receipt of purchased item, in the end even if name change made you lose it, you could always contact Sony.

Do you mean I could lose saves backed up in the cloud?

What’s your new PSNID? And did you follow all the steps here: https://forum.psnprofiles.com/topic/12212-trophies-are-missing-hidden-or-private-trophies-how-to-fix-it/

Are you talking about a different account on PSN than JHayden1993, like a secondary account? Whenever I search JHayden1993 on the PlayStation app you show up, but when I search JackAHayden1993 nothing shows up.

Do you lose premium membership if you change your PSN name? I'm having trouble finding a answer.

No, you’ll still have Premium, your profile will just have a different name.
