Hm.... Ok.

I guess I would use my name then. I already do it for Youtube.

Im not really attached to my gamer PSN name, so Im willing to let it go if given the chance.

You can customise who sees your name so it's not bad if you only allow it for your friends.

Sony should mind its own business and not ask ppl for their name.

People are buying an appliance, not applying for citizenship.

Furthermore fuck facebook.

Does it require you to use your name? No? All right... ZombieKiller, go back to your hole.

As long as you can hide that info from the public

I remember when Blizzard tried to force people to use their real names on Battle.net. Didn't end well for Blizz. I don't see many people using real names on the net.

It's serious business. Real Names and Colors are the future and you just don't understand.

Good thing I already have a fake facebook page set up for shit like this.

#25 Posted by the_bi99man (11026 posts) -

why would I want to use my real name?

This exactly. The only place on the internet where my real name exists is on a facebook page that I rarely use. I actually have another facebook account, with all fake information, that I use for any other sites that insist upon signing in with facebook.

The option will be there. I am not enthusiastic about it, though.

Are we able to change our PSN names yet? lol

#28 Posted by -RPGamer- (34283 posts) -

Really like this change. I only play with actual friends (sadly I feel like in this day and age I have to add that these are friends I see in real life). So seeing their actual names rather than a lame tag is a nice feature.

No, but there will be rectal temperature gauges for identity verification.

On topic, the use of real names has benefits and drawbacks. The main benefit is that if you actually know who other people are, it'll hopefully incentivize gamers to act more maturely and respectfully. The main drawback is if other gamers actually know who you are, well...yeah, you can figure it out.

A feature I will have no use for.

#33 Posted by cainetao11 (15841 posts) -

Absolutely no caring.

#34 Posted by Heil68 (42650 posts) -

#35 Posted by magicalclick (22230 posts) -

My name is Morgan Fox.

#36 Edited by Gaming-Planet (13704 posts) -

So, it will be like steam?

I see his screen name under his real name. I'd only put my first name.

#37 Posted by Sagem28 (10498 posts) -

And I want to do that....why ?

#38 Posted by NameIess_One (559 posts) -

Cool... but why would I want that?

It's fine for FB, where I interact almost exclusively with the people I know in real life, but anywhere else... no thanks! :)
