Sony Finally Allows Gamers to Change PSN ID Names

Sony Finally Allows Gamers to Change PSN ID Names

All PS4 games developed on or after April 1 past year have been developed to support this feature, but there may still be cases where a game isn't fully compatible, which is why Sony advises everyone to consult the list of tested games.

You can change your ID on either your PS4 or your web browser, but if you're rocking a PS3 or another earlier model, you unfortunately won't be able to do it. The cost for each name change after your first one will be $9.99 United States dollars for normal PS4 users while it will be $4.99 for PlayStation Plus owners. Changing to an ID effectively means you've bought it permanently, and are free to revert to it anytime you want. As for the incompatible games, you can revert back to any of your previous IDs for free to get around issues or errors that may arise. Child accounts, however, can't change their online IDs at all.

In short, the company guarantees that games published after April 1, 2018 will take to any changed PSN IDs without a hitch. Until now. Sony is finally delivering on its delayed promise to let users change their PSN names.

With that, you've completed the change! "However, since they have not all been specifically tested with the feature, we can not guarantee that they will support it", Sony said in its announcement of the update.

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

As soon as PlayStation players load into Fortnite: Battle Royale, they will see their new ID above their name in the lobby.

India rejects Pakistan claims of attack
Qureshi said Pakistan had told the five permanent members of the UN Security Council about the possibility of the attack. India had launched air strikes on Pakistan in February in retaliation for the Pulwama attack that killed 40 CRPF men.

Since not every game is supported, that could spell the end of your time spent playing your favorite title. Following a lengthy beta period, the ability to change your PlayStation Network ID is going to be made available to everyone very soon.

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

However, there are some exceptions to that rule, and Sony have revealed that at least 10 games are experiencing "critical" issues in the wake of the changes, including Sony's own LittleBigPlanet 3, and the "The Show" series of Major League Baseball games.

A large majority of the most-played PS4 games that we tested support the feature.

Loss of UGC or parts of the game may not function properly, both online and offline. I know I certainly have, and finally, the day has come where we have that option.
