PlayStation ID Name Change feature officially live today on PS4 here’s how to change your PSN IDBy Keshav Bhat

In line with Sony's announcement of how the feature will work six months ago, the first PSN ID name change is free.

Change of Online ID is here! In addition to this, Sony has put together a list of games that may be impacted by the PSN name change.

As with all new feature rollouts though, some kinks haven't been worked out.

Choose your Online ID and follow the prompts.

How much does it cost to change my PSN ID? All changes after then will cost $9.99/£7.99. It isn't possible to perform these actions on a PlayStation 3 or PlayStation Vita.

Select [Account Management] [Account Information] [Profile] [Online ID]. The feature will be as simple as visiting your "Account Management" page and entering a new online ID. Bloodborne, Grand Theft Auto V, and National Basketball Association 2K19, among others, have verified problems relating to audio, controller settings reverting to default, your old ID continuing to display, or accounts unlinking. If you're a PlayStation Plus subscriber, then you'll get a discount to £3.99/$4.99.

Only three players have been bought for over £100m to date: Neymar , Kylian Mbappe and Philippe Coutinho. The best thing we can do is qualify for the Champions League and hopefully win the Europa League too.

You can as long as the old ID doesn't violate the Terms of Service. Sony also will not allow anyone to take your old PSN ID names.

You can revert your new ID to your old one for free, if you don't like your new one. This will remain in your Profile for 30 days. Sony encourages users to check the list before changing your PSN ID. Officially, only games released for the first time after April 1st, 2018 have been created to support ID changes, and there's still one unspecified title that has problems.

Q. What do you mean by a game supports the online ID change if it was "originally published" on or after April 1, 2018?

A large majority of the most-played PS4 games that we tested support the feature. PS3 and PS Vita games are not supported. This will make it easier for your friends to notice your ID change.

Explaining why this was the case they said: "Games published after this date were developed using tools that support online ID change at a system level".

If you do decide to change your name, just check the list of supported titles and make sure you don't shoot yourself in the foot.
