PlayStation Confirms All PS4 Users Can Change Their PSN ID From Today

PSN Name Change Critical Issues Sony 1

You can check out the full list of games supported and impacted by PSN name changes here. For PlayStation Plus members, the price of the service is $4.99 per ID change instead.

The first change is free, and changes after that will cost £7.99/€9.99.

Somewhat surprisingly, PlayStation say there is no limit on how many times you can change your PSN Online ID - so you can just keep picking something else (as long as it's available), if you don't like what you have.

When changing your online ID, you'll have the option to display your old ID next to your new ID in your Profile for 30 days.

However, one inexplicable drawback of PSN throughout the past decade is that users have been unable to change their names.

Additionally, PS4 owners can revert to their original ID - as long as it doesn't violate Sony's terms of service - for free as many times as they wish.

Sony have revealed today that the PSN Online ID change feature will be launching on Thursday April 11.

If you're using a PS4, you just hit up Settings, go to Account Management, Account Information, Profile, and finally, Online ID.

"You'll also be able to change your online ID via a web browser, and that feature will also be available from tomorrow".

Lastly, Sony's announcement clarifies two important points that players must remember.

The blog says: "All PS4 games originally published on or after April 1, 2018 have been developed to support the online ID change feature".

Because not all games and applications for PS4, PS3 and Vita are guaranteed to support ID changes, it's possible you'll occasionally encounter issues or errors with particular games.
