I've never dug into this issue enough, so a dumb question. Is there a realistic way to put this in place without breaking multiplayer/leaderboards/trophies/etc for older games that are unlikely to get patched?
Older games may have to use the reference to the oldID, it looks like they added a new reference plus probally a display name to allow for changes but I would think that the older games will have to just show the old name for sake of data integrity and not totally breaking stuff up.

Seems old games will still use the old usernames.

Wonder if they will update PS3 and Vita firmwares to handle the change for Friends List, Messages and such? Like there is still the mess with the Messages across all 3 systems as they are not in sync (delete a message on one, doesn't delete it on other systems)

I'm happy it's coming and I will use even though I have a okay name so it's hard to get that excited. I understand how other have names they hate though.

This is good news if it actually ends up happening anytime soon. I would actually use it, but something that would really be cool is if you could transform name+trophies you got on your new account, to the old one you want to change the name of. I realized you could just play the games over again, but for those who are too lazy to do that like myself it would be great lol.

Anyone who watches PS I Love You XOXO knows they have a segment called "Please, Shuhei, let us change our names". They have a panel at PSX. During the panel I would love for Greg to say to Shuhei, "Please, Shuhei, let us change our names!", as per usual, but this time, Shu would respond with "Alright".
