PSN Online ID Change Feature Entering PlayStation Preview Program Soon

October 11, 2018


Good news for those who created PSN names based on a lover who is now their ex or your PSN name which has a bunch of numbers.  Sony has announced they will soon begin testing the long-awaited feature that will allow gamers to change their PlayStation Network Online ID on their PS4.  This feature will roll out as a beta through what Sony calls a “preview program.”  It will then be made available to select users that have registered as testers for prior system software update betas.


During the preview program gamers will be able to change their online ID as often and as many times a they want.  First change looks to be free then $9.99 for each additional after or $4.99 for PlayStationPlus  members.


One cool feature that I like is, you will be allowed to have your old name to be attached to your new name if you want so you don’t freak out any friends that might accidentally delete you.

Per Sony “This feature is compatible with PS4 games originally published after April 1, 2018, and a large majority of the most-played PS4 games that were released before this date. However, please note not all games and applications for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita systems are guaranteed to support the online ID change, and users may occasionally encounter issues or errors in certain games. If for any reason you experience issues after changing your ID, you can revert back to your original ID for free at any time (you will only be able to revert once during the preview program). Reverting back to an old ID will resolve most issues caused by the ID change. In addition, when this feature officially launches, a list of compatible games published before April 1, 2018, will be provided on for reference before you make a change.  The preview program for this feature is scheduled to conclude at the end of November 2018. The full rollout of the feature to all PS4 owners is planned for early 2019, so stay tuned for updates down the road!”
