Sony will finally let you change your PlayStation ID

  • Happy birthday PSVR

You will be able to change your PSN ID as many times as you want. Do you have plans to change your PSN name?

Sony Interactive Entertainment will launch a preview program to test PlayStation Network online ID changes at the end of November, ahead of the feature's full release in early 2019, the company announced.

When you change your name, you will have the option to display your old name alongside your new one to help friends recognize you - but once you change your name and select to enable this (or not), it can not be changed. The new feature comes with a handful of caveats (especially in its preview version), so you'll have to judge for yourself whether finally cutting ties with your embarrassing old persona is worth the potential hassle.

Like Microsoft's Xbox Live Gamertag, Sony will offer the first change for free when the service is launched on the live servers. Sony will provide a list of supported ID change games (again, this is freakish that it doesn't just work universally, and a glimpse into Sony's odd infrastructure).

Are there any potential complications for changing my PSN ID?

PlayStation is making it clear not all PS4, PS3, and PS Vita games are guaranteed to support the feature, so users might see issues or errors in certain games. Changing your PSN name is compatible with games published after April 1, 2018, as well as some of PS4's "most-played" titles to date. There will be a way to fix these problems, but you may not like it. You will not be able to adjust this after completing the online ID change.

You can also display your old ID alongside your new one in order to make sure that your friends know who you still are. So 24 year-old TW33NY_BOppErZ can now rest easy that they can change their handle to something more palatable in the new year. Now, you won't be able to change your name quite yet, but rest assured that it's coming.
