August 1, 2010 // 9:03 pm - Update: According to Sony's Jeff Rubenstein via, it appears PSN ID changes may not be coming for PlayStation Plus subscribers after all, to quote: "It's an idea that's been brought up multiple times, and it's something I'd like to see as well. I don't think there are any current plans to enact this, however. I'll bring it up again, though."

According to rumors from a Dutch site, North American and European PlayStation Plus subscribers may soon be able to change their PSN ID names similar to what Japanese PlayStation Network users can already do.

Below is a 'proof video' on How to Change Your PlayStation Network ID courtesy of MATTORULZ via YouTube along with a rough English translation, to quote:

"According to some PS3 hackers who wish to remain anonymous and are in a PS3 development chat channel on EFnet, there are traces of an upcoming PSN feature for Americans and Europeans.

It is about changing your nickname PlayStation Network, and will 'Change display name' to be named.

But what many people probably already know, is the fact that this very very long one feature of the Japanese PlayStation Network, see the video below.

When you add people to your original account name will automatically change to display your chosen name. This feature is expected only for PlayStation Plus members are available."

If PlayStation Plus gave us faster downloads, I'd pay $100/yr. But no other features seem interesting. Not even this.
