PlayStation launches PSN ID change option, though not all games are supported

PSN name change

PlayStation 4 owners will be able to change their User IDs on console and via a web browser. And now that Sony is finally letting us change our Online ID's, there's nothing to do but scream for joy. Once there, click on the Edit button next your Online ID, and you'll be able to enter a new ID - or select one from a list of suggestions.

Starting today in America and tomorrow in Europe, PSN users can visit Sony's site to change their names at last. 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.

Afterwards, each subsequent ID change costs $9.99 CAD.

You can revert back to your old user ID as long as the name doesn't violate the Terms of Service. Players can also revert back to their old ID for free but must contact PlayStation support to do so.

Once you're in "Settings", click through the following items: "Account Management" "Account Information" "Profile" "Online ID". Potential risks include losing progress in certain games, some games may not function properly, and you may even lose content (even paid for content) for certain games.

People working part time, but who are looking for full time work, also remained stable last month at 4.5 million. Compared with a year earlier, the numbers showed that Canada added 331,600 jobs for an increase of 1.8 per cent.

The game must have released for the first time on or after April 1, 2018, to support the online ID change feature. PS3 and PS Vita games are not supported. That said, Sony does not guarantee all games fully support the feature.

There are also a number of games that are known to have "critical issues" with the online ID change feature, including LittleBigPlanet 3 and Just Dance 2017. Don't fret, though. As Social Media Director Sid Shuman noted in the blog post, "the large majority of most actively played PS4 games support the feature".

From this screen, you can either enter a PSN username of your choice, or select a custom one from the list of suggestions generated.

You may lose progress within games, including game saved data, leaderboard data, and progress towards Trophies.

Other games that are also now facing issues are Grand Theft Auto 5, National Basketball Association 2K19, and The Last of Us, but those issues are only related to displaying users' previous PlayStation ID.
