    Hi guys,

    I recently downloaded a game using a PSN account - I haven't liked my psn username for a while and wanted to open a new PSN account with a more preferable name

    My plan was to change the email address in the existing account, cancel PS Plus and then open a new account on my usual email address and PS plus account with a name I prefer.

    If I do this, how can I (or can I?) keep a game I've downloaded on my PS4? I understand if I do this it won't have the license?

    Thank you :)

    Wait for the rumoured update with the option to change your PSN ID.
