PSN has a long way to go. Frankly, I believe they should invest in the infrastructure and start charging as well. Live has free Silver access; PSN should provide a low-cost Gold service as well.
I didn't know you could create a new anything. I inquired about changing my name, and they said it wasn't possible.
I have no complaints about PSN at all. Games drop every now and again like with any online game, but I never have connection issues, extremely rarely do I see lag issues. The value that's being delivered for $0 cost is great.
