    Yes but tables sitting with the new key doesn't solve anything unless every program is changed to use it. And that could include every game. So it's a stupid problem with a simple fix but that probably requires a lot of effort from a lot of different teams.

    ja the key thing is not so simple. Lost the key to my locked patio doors, and because of tamper proof rebate set ended up having to remove hinge pins, take doors off and fit new lock. was a pain.

    A blog post about the changes established a few key points — mainly how much it will cost players to change their name once a trial period is over. Select players who have participated in system software betas previously will be allowed to change their PSN names as part of the PlayStation Preview Program. The first PSN name change will be free of charge, but “changes after that will cost $9.99 USD.” The option to change your PSN name will cost $4.99 for PlayStation Plus members, Sony said.

    "When you change your online ID, you will have the option to display your previous ID with your new ID, so your friends can recognize you. Once you decide to display your old ID or not, you won’t be able to adjust this after completing the online ID change process."


    Thinking of changing mine as so many mispronounce it. This display previous ID with new ID feature is a good thing but I hope you can choose to switch it on and then later off when needed. I can see alot of "accidental" deletion... Hey who is this guy in my friends list? Ag I'll sommer delete him...

    Should make it more expensive, if you choose a kak name you deserve it.

    I wonder if this will affect game sharing? Probably not . Hopefully not.
