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

PlayStation ID Name Change feature officially live today on PS4 here’s how to change your PSN IDBy Keshav Bhat

PlayStation is rolling out the ability for players to change their PlayStation Network ID later today, launching a feature that has been long-requested and was tested through a limited beta last October.

If you're anxious that your online reputation might fade away with your old username, you can choose to have your old ID displayed along with your new one, so that friends might recognise you. Go to "Settings", and then move on the menu "Account Management" - "Account Information" - "Profile" to the section "Online ID" Open it - you will be prompted to enter a new username and confirm it.

If you find that your online ID is now "Tempxxx", this change was caused by a report from another player and an investigation by moderation staff, with a finding that your online ID has breached the PSN Terms of Service.

For people who do want to change their PSN ID, they can do so through either their PlayStation 4 or a web browser. Your first PSN name change is free; every subsequent change will cost you actual money ($9.99 U.S. per change for regular users, or $4.99 for PS Plus subscribers).

You can change your online ID for free, but it will cost money should you decide to change it again. There is no limit on how many times you can change your PSN ID and you may revert it back to any previous PSN ID you had at any time for free.

The team said they caught the snake by tracking a "boyfriend" male snake that had been fitted with a radio transmitter. Pet owners either release them on goal when they get too big, or by accident when hurricanes sweep through the state.

Child accounts can not change their online ID. So if you play any of the titles on that list, it might be smart to hold off on changing your ID until the issues have been resolved. We've all had them, right? As long as you're willing to pay, though, you can change your ID as many times as you'd like. The games on this list may reset your game progress, including any record of in-game currency you may have purchased with real money.

As soon as PlayStation players load into Fortnite: Battle Royale, they will see their new ID above their name in the lobby. For example, games like Everybody's Golf, LittleBigPlanet 3, MLB The Show 14, MLB The Show 15, MLB The Show 16, and Worms Battlegrounds all have Critical Issues with the feature. Still, Sony had to start somewhere if it was going to make the feature available in the first place. Let us know in the comments. Sony has reported "critical issues" in big games like Bloodborne and Grand Theft Auto V while testing. However, it will not be supported directly on older devices such as the PS3 or PS Vita.

That's nice (mainly because your original ID still exists due to this insane PSN structure), but the whole "losing progress or content" thing definitely isn't.

Q: What kind of issues could I potentially run into?

Reverting back should resolve most issues.
