    Default PSN Online ID Change

    It’s coming in 2019 for everybody! Beta testing will start soon (available to select people who’ve previously done Beta testing on PS4).

    When the final version is released, your first change will be free, and you’ll have to pay every time you change after that (cheaper for PS+ subscribers).

    Full release:
    Preview program to kick off soon, with full rollout for all PS4 users planned for early 2019

    By Sid Shuman
    Director - Social Media, SIEA

    We’re happy to announce that we will soon begin testing the long-awaited feature that will allow users to change their PlayStation Network Online ID from their PlayStation 4 system. The PSN Online ID Change feature beta will be a part of the PlayStation Preview Program, and will become available to select users that have pre-registered as testers for previous PlayStation 4 system software betas.

    During the preview, you will be able to change your online ID as many times as you want. The first change is free, and changes after that will cost €9.99/£7.99. For PlayStation Plus members, it will cost €4.99/£3.99 after the first change. Changes to online ID can be made through the Settings menu or the Profile page of your PS4.

    When you change your online ID, you will have the option to display your previous ID with your new ID, so your friends can recognize you. Once you decide to display your old ID or not, you won’t be able to adjust this after completing the online ID change process.

    This feature is compatible with PS4 games originally published after 1st April 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 PlayStation.com for reference before you make a change.

    The preview program for this feature is planned to conclude at the end of November 2018. The full roll-out of the feature to all PS4 owners is planned for early 2019, so stay tuned for updates down the road!

    I hope people don’t go changing their names willy nilly!

    Generally when AUFers have changed their online IDs, their new names have been terrible lol.

    Your current name is too good. It tells people who you are, and what you’re about lol

    Beta is imminent for this, many stipulations to the name change though, seems like there could be a lot that can go awry such as loss of game access or paid DLC etc.

    Could just be precautionary efforts from Sony to give themselves an out if the shit hits the fan though.

    Can you link what stipulations or reports of possible issues? Would be interested to see what they are?

    Us older (and wiser lol) folks have it easy, but you have to remember that there’d be people who picked their PSN ID in 2007 at the age of 14. They’re 25 now. Poor buggers. Some of the gaming handles I used when I was 14 were so cringeworthy they should’ve been illegal. So I pity those poor fools too.

    I think they’re just covering themselves. Newer games will be fine, but it’s possible that some older games will have issues, they just want to extensively beta test this stuff to be sure.

    This whole problem started because Sony chose a primary key that was horrifically bad, and violates most of the principles they teach you in your first lesson on databases. It still blows my mind. I do think you could do some clever stuff to get around it though that should be fairly bulletproof, so hopefully Sony’s new solution does actually work seamlessly and there aren’t any issues at all.
