PlayStation 4 owners will be able to change their User IDs on console and via a web browser.
Fans have been clamouring for the chance to get a fresh online ID for years now, particularly if you're still using a name that you got bored of years ago. If you do not own a PS4, you can not change your ID through PS3 or Vita. Some games, including all PlayStation 3 and PS Vita games, may not be compatible with the ID changing feature.
As with anything this monumental, there are risks to changing a PSN ID.
Sony announced back in October it would provide the option for you to change your ID name on PS4. If this is your first change, then it'll be free of charge; any subsequent incur a £7.99/$9.99 charge.
I just found out that PS4 is letting you change your PSN name starting from tomorrow. You can revert back to any of your previous IDs by contacting PlayStation Support.
To change your online ID on the PlayStation 4, open the PS4's Settings menu and select "Account Management", then "Account Information", then "Profile", then finally "Online ID".
Loss of UGC or parts of the game may not function properly, both online and offline.
Q. What do you mean by a game supports the online ID change if it was "originally published" on or after April 1, 2018? Some of the more worrying issues that players may encounter include a loss of Trophy progress, leaderboard data, and saved game progress. This point is further clarified by PlayStation who set a date of April 1, 2018, for when a game must have been published after to support the feature.
They also linked to a blog post which explained how the PSN Online ID change feature will work. PS3 and PS Vita games are not supported.
A large majority of the most-played PS4 games that we tested support the feature.
For example: a game released in 2015 has been re-mastered or re-sold as a complete edition in 2018 will not support the ID change feature. The issues relate to game progress, in-game currency, and achievements earned. There's a compatibility list that shows the potential problems you might face, including a few titles (such as Just Dance 2017 and LittleBigPlanet 3) with "critical issues" that break the experience. Doing so should resolve most issues experienced.
