PSN Name Changes Confirmed, Coming to PlayStation Preview Program Soon

PSN Name Changes Confirmed, Coming to PlayStation Preview Program Soon

You will not be able to adjust this after completing the online ID change.

Here's another kicker and the key to why PSN ID changes have been such a struggle for PlayStation to implement.

During the preview program, users will be able to change their online ID multiple times. The first change is free, while any change after that will cost $9.99 Dollars / $9.99 CAD / €9.99 / £7.99 for regular users and $4.99 USD / $4.99 CAD / €4.99 / £3.99 for PlayStation Plus members.

The PSN Online ID Change feature beta will initially become available in the PlayStation Preview Program, which includes select users that have participated in system software betas in the past. Are you excited to be able to change that (admit it) slightly embarrassing gamer tag?

While all PlayStation 4 games published after April 1, 2018 will be compatible with this new feature, anything published before that date is not guaranteed.

Suicide Squad , like Guardians , was a superhero team-up movie with an ensemble cast of less-than-heroic characters. Gunn isn't the first Marvel Studios alum to work with DC and Warner Bros .

Additionally, when you change your name, "you will have the option to display your previous ID with your new ID, so your friends can recognize you".

Here's the kicker, because with Sony there usually is one: the name change won't actually work for every game. However, some PS4, PS3, and PS Vita games will not be compatible, which could cause problems.

The preview program for this feature is planned to conclude at the end of November 2018.

They also added that they will be adding a list up on the website for convenience that allows players to see which compatible games will make this change more fluid without disruption! You can, however, revert once to your original ID for free, and that should fix any glitches.
