Playstation users could soon see a day when friends and coworkers aren't embarrassed to share their PSN's, a day where every player has the chance to escape their bad, decade-old screen names, when that day is though, we still have no idea.

New information suggests that Sony might finally allow PlayStation Network users to change their usernames.

Three people at three different game studios, speaking anonymously because they were not authorised to talk to press, said that in recent months they've been fixing bugs, tweaking settings, and ensuring that their games are compatible with Sony's plans.

As for when this feature might roll out, that's still in the air.

Astronomers Find First Alien Moon: Its Big And Gaseous
So Kipping and Teachey studied the information from NASA's Kepler space telescope , an exoplanet chasing satellite. The planet itself is several times heavier than Jupiter, and its mass, the moon is 1.5% of the mass of the planet.

In addition, a fourth source gave even more evidence of PSN name changes. Favorite characters who have fallen out of fashion, sexual plays on words, drug references, and random numbers litter the PSN names of many now-mature gamers, and this very basic function is going to be a very welcome one when it drops.

And it's likely something that every game with an online component needs to sort out first before Sony can implement these changes, lest things you purchased are suddenly untied from your account.

According to the report, Sony has delivered documentation to at least one game studio that reveals an "edit username" option for PSN profiles.

For context, Microsoft has allowed Xbox Live users to change their usernames for years. By contrast, Microsoft's Xbox Live allows infinite username changes, with the first being free and each subsequent change costing $8 United States dollars.
