How to Change Your PS3 ID Name


One of the features of Sony's PlayStation 3 (PS3) game console is its ability to store multiple gamer profiles on a single system. These profiles allow gamers to "customize" the PS3 with their preferences.

  • Turn your PS3 on and log on to the profile with the name you want to change.

  • Scroll to the "Users" section in the main menu (on the far left) and find your profile.

  • Press the triangle button on your controller to bring up a user menu.

  • Select the "Information" option in the user menu.

  • Select your profile name at the information screen. A text entry screen will appear that allows you to change the profile name.
