PSN ID Name Changes Are Finally Coming Today

FINALLY!

Months after confirming that PlayStation Network ID name changes were finally on the way, Sony has confirmed that they’ll be hitting for all players later today. The first name change will be free, with subsequent changes costing about $8.

You’ll be able to change your name directly on your PlayStation 4 or on the web portal, but Sony has also confirmed that unlike in their original statement, there is one game that was published after April 1st, 2018 that did not support the name change, which they’ve been unable to fix.

They’ve provided a list of tested games right HERE. 

THE POTENTIAL CONSEQUENCES OF CHANGING YOUR ID

Below are some of the issues you may encounter. We expect major issues to occur only in a small number of games.

  • Your previous Online ID may remain visible to you and other players in some areas.
  • You may lose progress within games, including game saved data, leaderboard data, and progress towards trophies.
  • Parts of your game and applications may not function properly both online and offline.
  • You may lose access to content (including paid-for content) that you may have acquired for your games including content like add-ons and virtual currency.
