Sony will finally let you change your PSN Online 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. That's because Sony has never offered the option to change that PSN username, despite over a decade of frequent requests from users embarrassed over youthful name choices like "XxX_BluntMaster69_XxX". The feature is first going to appear in the PlayStation Preview Program as part of a beta, which will run until November 2018 ends. You'll also get the ability to display your previous PSN ID alongside your new one (so your friends can recognize you). You'll see a game compatibility list when name changing officially arrives. 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.

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).

To make the change from xxxSniperJoe420xxx to "MyWifeIsMyLife2012" you'll merely need to head to the settings menu or profile section of the PS4.

Not all games will actually support the feature, but PlayStation says "a large majority of the most-played PS4 games" will, as well as any game "originally published after April 1, 2018". This should solve "most" issues. You can, however, revert once to your original ID for free, and that should fix any glitches. However, some PS4, PS3, and PS Vita games will not be compatible, which could cause problems.
