PlayStation Online ID name change feature coming soon

PlayStation announce when you'll be able to change your PSN ID

Sony announced today on the PlayStation blog that they will soon begin testing the long-awaited ID change feature.

The PlayStation Network online ID change feature beta will be part of the PlayStation Preview Program and become available to select users who have pre-registered as testers for previous PlayStation 4 system software betas.

The first change will be free. For PlayStation Plus members, it will cost $5 USD/CAD / €4.99 / £3.99 after the first change. Changes after that will cost $10 USD/CAD / €9.99 / £7.99. You'll also get the ability to display your previous PSN ID alongside your new one (so your friends can recognize you). You will be able to revert to your original PSN ID for free once at any time to resolve these issues.

To make the change from xxxSniperJoe420xxx to "MyWifeIsMyLife2012" you'll merely need to head to the settings menu or profile section of the PS4.

Another caveat is that the new feature won't be compatible with all games.

Unfortunately, not all applications and games for PS4, PS3, and PS Vita are guaranteed to be compatible, and "users may occasionally encounter issues or errors in certain games" after changing their name.

Not all games will actually support the feature, but PlayStation says "a large majority of the most-played PS4 games" will, as well as any game "originally published after April 1, 2018". The preview is set to end around November 2018, while full implementation is set for 2019.

That being said, when the feature officially launches, Sony will provide a full list of compatible games so you can plan ahead and weigh your options.
