PSN ID change launches TOMORROW: PS4 fans getting long awaited feature

Sony finally allows PSN Online ID changes

Last week, reports surfaced that the highly-requested PSN name change feature was still in the works.

Starting today, PlayStation 4 owners can finally change their online PlayStation Network IDs. After the first free hit, and similar to other services, it'll cost 10 bucks for the privilege; but PS Plus members get a discount of five dollars for subsequent alterations. You will then be able to enter an Online ID of your choice or choose from one of the suggestions.

To change your PSN ID, you must either use a PS4 or your computer.

They will launch the feature later today - and you will be able to make the adjustments on your PS4 OR on your web you don't even have to wait until you've finished work/school/college/uni/prison. For more details and information, we encourage you to refer to the list of tested games before making a change to your online ID.

Should you decide your new ID is not what you want, you can change as many times as you'd like, or revert back to your original ID for free.

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

Online ID changes are not available to PlayStation 3 or PlayStation Vita gamers. Sony notes that games published after April 1, 2018, were done so using "tools that support online ID change at a system level", meaning that the functionality to support ID changes has taken nearly five years to implement for the current console generation.

Parts of your game and applications may not function properly both online and offline. It does not work with PS3 or Vita.

The feature is fully compatible with any game released on or after April 1st, 2018.

For example: a game released in 2015 has been re-mastered or re-sold as a complete edition in 2018 will not support the ID change feature.

Below are some of the issues you may encounter.

You may lose progress within games, including game saved data, leaderboard data, and progress towards trophies. These issues are plainly explained on the official PlayStation Blog and exist out of the test/staging area, so it's a very much "at your own risk" sort of deal.
