PSN Name Changes Are Available on PS4 Starting Today

Now Loading- PSN Name Changes

If you are a PlayStation 4 user and wish to change your PSN Online ID, you will be able to do just that today in North America.

The feature is being rolled out on both PlayStation 4 consoles and web browsers tomorrow. For those who change their PSN ID and later decide they want to revert back to the previous one, this, too, can be done for free.

However, there's one pretty big catch to this whole ID changing deal.

As with anything this monumental, there are risks to changing a PSN ID. Read on for everything you need to know about changing your PS4 name. All changes after then will cost $9.99/£7.99. 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.

PSN users can change their Online ID as many times as they like and if they run into any issues after that can revert back to their old ID.

He did what any sensible person in the midst of a Twitter war would do: take the feud to Instagram. The Oakland Raiders receiver first took to Twitter on Sunday to offer some words of wisdom.

To aid your friends on PSN, your old ID may be displayed next to your new ID on your profile for 30 days. Games published on or after April 1, 2018 should support this new change, but Sony has not tested all of the games to be sure, according to the blog post. Currently, there are only 10 games on the list with known critical issues.

"All PS4 games originally published on or after April 1, 2018 have been developed to support the online ID change feature", the post stated. That said, Sony does not guarantee all games fully support the feature. With the latter two, users may find that after changing their IDs, their new handles might not be visible in some portions of games or that user accounts could be unlinked from game accounts. "Do keep in mind that the large majority of most actively played PS4 games support the feature".

Below are some of the issues you may encounter.

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. PlayStation admits "we expect major issues to occur only in a small number of games".

You may lose access to content (including paid-for content) that you may have acquired for your games including content like add-ons and virtual currency. Most of these issues appear to resolvable by logging out and back in, Sony says.
