PSN Name Changes Officially Coming, Entering Preview Soon

  • PlayStation announce when you'll be able to change your PSN ID

On the other hand, you can only choose to display your old ID or not at the time of the name change - the option won't be available later, suggesting that the old record is somewhat scrubbed after the change.

Last week we heard from multiple developers that Sony was about to unveil its PSN name-changing service: something Microsoft rolled out many years ago that Sony fans have clamored for. It will begin as part of the PlayStation Preview Program for those who have signed up for the betas for previous PS4 software updates. For those that do get access, you'll be able to do your first change for free. Every following change will cost $9.99 for regular PlayStation Network members, while PlayStation Plus members will get a discount and pay only $4.99. Changes after that will cost $10 USD/CAD / €9.99 / £7.99.

Unfortunately, not all applications and games for PS4, PS3, and PS Vita are guaranteed to be compatible, and "users may occasionally encounter issues or errors in certain games" after changing their name. Reverting back to an old ID will resolve most issues caused by the ID change.

November 2018 is the planned date for the preview program with a full roll out in "early 2019". If there is any issue after changing your ID, it can be reverted free of charge.

That being said, when the feature officially launches, Sony will provide a full list of compatible games so you can plan ahead and weigh your options.

Another caveat is that the new feature won't be compatible with all games.
