After the main opening event of this year’s PlayStation Experience, Greg Miller of Kinda Funny sat down with Sony Interactive Entertainment America CEO Shawn Layden for a bit of back and forth. Among his first questions was one that’s always in the back of our minds, whether we care to admit it or not: When can we fix our teenage mistakes of PlayStation Network usernames? As you can probably guess, Layden’s immediate response on the oft-asked PSN question is how we got our headline image.
You can watch this part of the interview below:
Most importantly, what we got from this back-and-forth was this quote regarding the name question…
I hope we’ll see events occur that you don’t have to ask me that question next PSX.
Layden makes adding PSN name changing sound like a complex process, calling it a “large piece of work.” While his quote probably shouldn’t be considered a full-throated announcement of a potential PSN name change capability in the near future, it’s the closest we’ve come to getting an idea for when we can chop chose 69’s, 420’s, and inter-capitalized letters from our names.
