Sony’s Shawn Layden Heavily Hints at PSN ID Change Coming Next Year

Share this:

At yesterday’s Sony PlayStation Experience informal meet and greet, Sony Interactive Entertainment President and CEO Shawn Layden kind of confirmed something that a lot of PlayStation gamers have been asking for since last gen, and that’s letting people do a PSN ID change for their existing PSN username!

Talking to KindaFunny’s Greg Miller, Layden was asked “will we be able to change our PlayStation Network names?” While not outright confirming or denying it, Layden gave a very loaded answer.

The elves back at the North Pole have been working on that for quite some time. It’s a large piece of work; and it’s more complex than we… (cuts off due to jeers from crowd). Let me put it this way, I hope we’ll see events occur where you won’t have to ask me that question next PSX.

You can Layden out saying it yourself in the super short video below.

Is it finally coming true? Are Sony’s “elves” finally close to making it a reality? For the sake of everyone with xXx_ in their names, let’s hope so. If ever this happens, don’t be surprised if there’s a corresponding fee involved as well since that should mitigate people constantly changing their usernames and whatnot (just like how Microsoft is doing it on the Xbox platform).
