  1. Accidentally changed gamertag


    Literally like 10 minutes ago, I was picking a new gamertag and accidentally claimed a name that Microsoft had suggested to me. Well I had the impression that the name would have all those numbers in it and it seemed like the name I typed was available.
    Is there anyway to reverse this.

    :)

    I siggest you read the e3 announcenent if you try and take an existing name you are given a randomized hastag

    However if you dont want this the onky way around it is to try a not already used name

    You cant take whale if it is already taken hence the hashtag

    It can't be reversed however you could always change your gamertag to something else if you are not happy with it. There is a fee to do so though

    Once changed, you have to pay again to change it
