PSN - Account Name Case Sensitive?

2069 Views 4 Posts Locked Online, PSN and Hosting
has sombody actually tested the case sensitivity of user accounts on the psn network. i would but i dont have a ps3... yet. I would expect the passwords to be case sensitive but to allow case sensitivity on user account names would mean i could sign up with the same name more than once by varying uppercase and lower case letters. it would also make searches for friends harder. ask to settle a debate between myself and a ps3 owner. thankx in advance.
Short answer: No

Long answer: No, it's not case sensitive.

eg. If your PSN ID was JOHN, then that means...

JOHN = John = john = JohN = jOHn = JOhN, etc, etc. = All the same, mate!
thanx heaps dude, i'm gonna go rub it in - nah but i am going to point him here. thanx.
You're welcome. It's always a pleasure to help out people.
