Sony is finally letting you change your PSN ID from today

Sony is finally letting you change your PSN ID from today

Your first change is free, but any subsequent changes will cost RM40 each. For PlayStation Plus members, it will cost £3.99/€4.99 for each change after the first one.

If your ID is something you created without thinking (or is just plain lame), you can change it by either logging into your PSN account settings on a web browser or in the Account Management section of the Settings menu on your PlayStation 4.

You can change your PSN ID on either the PlayStation 4 or by using the Sony website.

With that, you've completed the change! At any time, you can return to your old nickname by contacting PlayStation support.

No, reverting back is free. This is possible because old names won't be made available to anyone else but remain associated with the same account behind the scenes. You could test out a new name for a bit, and see how it goes - and if it's not quite a fit for you, be back to your old ID in no time at all. It will be done if someone reports you online or by Sony itself if you violate any of the rules mentioned here.

All PS4 users with non-child accounts can change their ID, either through the PS4 or a web browser. Luckily, Sony has a list of tested games to peruse. PS3 and PS Vita games are not supported. According to Sony Corporation, every game published after April 1, 2018, should support this feature but there's no confirmation. Find the Online ID option, and click Edit.

What does a black hole look like? We're about to find out
This twisting motion causes them to release photons, which is the main source of emission from matter close to the black hole . The scientists are now processing the data collected by the telescopes and hope to release a photo in the very near future.

Notably, new names will only show up in PlayStation games published in April 2018 or afterwards, due to a system-level change enabling the new feature.

Let me know in the comments if you have any questions.

Not all PS4 games support the name change feature.

Below are some of the issues you may encounter. At least 10 games including Little Big Planet 3 have been identified to cause critical issues, while Bloodborne, Warframe, Grand Theft Auto V and even The Last of Us are among the games affected by minor problems. This will only be visible to other players registered as your friends. For example, players may face trophy progress being halted, losing save data, access to digital currency in purchased games, DLC content becoming unavailable, and some games becoming unavailable both online and offline.

You'll also need to check out your games to make sure they still function properly after making the adjustment.
