PSN Online ID Change feature launches today

Now Loading- PSN Name Changes

Rejoice Play Station Nation the PSN Name Change Features is HereWATCH

PlayStation 4 owners can now change their Online ID on the PSN network, PlayStation has announced.

Not all games will support the online ID change feature. On the console itself, the option is found under Settings Account Management Account Information Profile Online ID.

Changing your name might confuse some of the people on your friends list so Sony is letting players display their previous name right next to the new one.

The first PSN ID change is free, but players will have to pay $9.99 for each change after that very first one.

It costs money to change your PSN name (after the first one) but you can revert back as many times as you like for free.

All PS4 users with non-child accounts can change their ID, either through the PS4 or a web browser. Originally, Sony said the name change feature would be supported by all PS4 games published after April 1, 2018.

At long last, Sony announced it will let you change your online ID on PSN beginning on Thursday.

Therefore, PSN users that change their ID are being urged not to play Disc Jam, Everybody's Golf, Just Dance 2017, LittleBigPlanet 3, MLB The Show 14, 15 and 16, Onrush, The Golf Club 2 and Worms Battlegrounds. However, this isn't a guarantee, as not every title has been tested with the name change feature.

Sony began trialling its long-awaited name changing feature for PlayStation users last October, revealing that the first adjustment would be free but thereafter would cost users. Some games have possible loss of progression and functionality so check out list below before you change.

The new feature doesn't now work on all games, though it is expected to work without a hitch on all games released post April 1 2018, and popular PS4 games released before this date.

If that sounds like too much to remember, you can check this handy list of tested games and potential issues.

As with anything this monumental, there are risks to changing a PSN ID.

Other games that are also now facing issues are Grand Theft Auto 5, National Basketball Association 2K19, and The Last of Us, but those issues are only related to displaying users' previous PlayStation ID. PS3 And PS Vita games are also incompatible with this feature.

Q: What kind of issues could I potentially run into?

The biggest issues might include the game showing your old name, losing saved data or access to downloadable content. But there are many other popular titles that will have issues.
