Game developers are apparently readying themselves for the long-awaited PlayStation username change according to a new report. No longer will PSN members suffer for the embarrassing name choices made by a younger self.
According to Kotaku, developers at three different game studios spent the past couple of months fixing bugs, and generally prepping their games to handle the username change once it becomes available, which will be soon according to Sony's plans.
One source shared a photo of an internal Sony document that actually outlines the steps to edit one's username. However, sources say that because of the way PSN IDs link your username and account ID, editing usernames will be difficult. There's no word yet on when the feature will even be made available
With the username change, Sony will finally have a feature that Xbox Live as had for years, which lets them change their Xbox Live usernames, first for free, and then for a small fee. Sony head Shawn Layden announced that username changes in PSN will finally be coming back at PlayStation Experience in 2017 and hinted that it should be done by the time the next PSX rolls around.
Funny enough there will be no PSX this year, but it looks like the name change plans are still on.
