It's not possible. Once you make a name it's there to stay. Only way to get another is with another E-Mail.

I think he's saying you'd need to make a new account.

Which could totally screw you with certain PSN games like the digital version of Warhawk.

Is there anyway I can make a PSN name without owning a PS3?

You can't change your PSN ID unless creating a new account.
But you can rename your Online Name at account management. The Online Name is a name that listed in the friend list of XMB as user name. Defualt Online name is your PSN ID.

If software supports Online Name, it displays Online Name as player name instead of PSN ID.
But there are few games that support Online Name

Actually thats the only PSN game so far that is tied to a PSN account. Every other game works fine if you make a new account.

yes you can, go here PS Store and create an account. it's the same as you would using a PS3

it's not a question but a lesson learned in time."

You followed my post, right? There was a lie in my comment...
It seems that you can change your Online Name only on Japanese PSN account.
I didn't know that when I posted it...I'm so sorry.

And now I found why there are few games that support Onlin Name.
All these games were SCE Japan's title.

Sorry again...
