changed my online ID and then it was changed to Tempxxxxxx


Your new online ID has been found to be in breach of the PSN Terms of Service. If you find that you are having issues, such as lost progress or hidden trophies, you can revert to your previous online ID, as long as it does not breach PSN Terms of Service. To find the correct contact number for an online ID revert, please type "revert online ID" into the search bar here.  

Changing back to your previous online ID is free and should resolve most issues. However, changing back to your previous online ID may not fix all issues (for example, you may not recover all, or any, loss of content, progress, and functionality). We recommend that if you want to change back to a previous online ID, do so as soon as possible, because it may affect content, game progress, and functionality associated with your new online ID.
