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

PSN Name Change Critical Issues Sony 1

After a rather long beta Sony have announced the much requested PSN ID change will launch tomorrow and you won't even need to go on to your PS4, you can do it via your web browser.

However, there's one pretty big catch to this whole ID changing deal. Ever since assigning myself the name GreyGamer93 on my PlayStation 3 Online account back in 2006, my body would cringe whenever anybody asked for my user ID. On the other hand, those who wish to make the change online can log-in to their PSN Account and click the edit button next to the PSN ID.

Sony compiled a list of 10 titles that are known to have "critical issues" relating to the name-change feature, including LittleBigPlanet 3, Disc Jam, and Just Dance 2017. The first change is free for everyone, which is great and all, but it turns out that a lot of games might not support your name change. Subsequent changes will cost $9.99 USD / CAD, but if you are a PlayStation Plus subscriber the fee is reduced by half to $4.99.

Just two days before she resigned, Nielsen traveled to the US southern border with Trump. "This wasn't altogether unexpected". But Nielsen's removal and McAleenan's temporary appointment are not a slam dunk on either side of the political spectrum.

Q: Can I revert back to my old ID?

Sony also recommended that PS4 fans check the list of tested games before they make their PSN Online ID change. So while games published for the first time after April 1, 2018, should all work, not every single one has been tested. If you have any doubts whether your game saves, online profile and whatever else will work with the game you play all the time, be sure to consult that list. Sony says a small minority of games it has not tested may not support a user changing their online ID. That said, Sony does not guarantee all games fully support the feature.

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. 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. How do I know that I won't run into these? Players may also lose access to content (paid or otherwise) acquired for games such as add-ons and virtual currency. Doing so should resolve most issues experienced.
