PSN name change: how to change your PlayStation 4 ID

Now Loading- PSN Name Changes

The long-requested feature to change your PSN online ID will be avaiable for PlayStation users starting April 10, allowing PSN users to finally be able to choose a new name via their console or web browser.

Fans have been clamouring for the chance to get a fresh online ID for years now, particularly if you're still using a name that you got bored of years ago. First, the feature will only work on PS4 games, so the name change will not be available on the PS3 and PS Vita.

Select "PSN Profile" in the menu to the left, and then click on the "Edit" button next to your Online ID.

Sony announced back in October it would provide the option for you to change your ID name on PS4. The first name change will be offered free of charge.

It's arguably an overdue change when Xbox owners have long had the option of changing their gamertags, and the technical limitations could leave many people sticking with their names for a long time. PlayStation Plus members only have to pay $4.99/£3.99 for every subsequent change.

If you find that issues occur after changing to a new ID, you can revert back to your old ID at no cost.

To aid your friends on PSN, your old ID may be displayed next to your new ID on your profile for 30 days.

Loss of user-generated content or parts of the game may not function properly, both online and offline.

In short, the company guarantees that games published after April 1, 2018 will take to any changed PSN IDs without a hitch.

A full compatibility list can be found here, as well as a FAQ that explains more specifics around the process. "However, since they have not all been specifically tested with the feature, we can not guarantee that they will support it". But you can enable this feature only at the time of the name change. We recommend that you check this list of tested games before you make the actual change.

Below are some of the issues you may encounter.

Sony says that you also "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".
