PSN name change CONFIRMED

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

Finally, after months of hints and rumors, Sony has officially announced that the option to change your PSN Online ID is now being tested and will roll out to all PlayStation users in "early 2019" (with earlier testing for members of the PlayStation Preview Program). The first change is free, and changes after that will cost €9.99/£7.99.

The format holder confirmed the news in a post on the PlayStation Blog, revealing that a beta for PSN ID Change (as it's officially known as) will be released in November, before rolling out to all PS4 owners in early 2019. Unfortunately, not all titles will support the new online ID, as Sony explains that players may "occasionally encounter issues or errors in certain games".

All games released after April 1, 2018 will be compatible, while developers have been hard at work to get the feature working on games released prior.

The first time PSN users change their Online ID it will be free but after that PSN users will charged.

KitGuru Says: I've been wanting to change my name for quite some time after my online moniker was inexplicably denied.

When games change their ID, they can choose an option to have their old name appear next to their new one. Do you have plans to change your PSN name? There will be a way to fix these problems, but you may not like it.

During the preview, you will be able to change your online ID as many times as you want.

If you ever wanted to change your PSN Online ID on your PS4 but were frustrated at the lack of ability to do so, there is some good news on the horizon. If you've been selected to test previous system software betas, there's a chance you'll get to change your name before the end of the year, but everyone else will have to wait until sometime in 2019. This should solve "most" issues.
