Sony Will Let You Change Your PSN ID In Early 2019

PlayStation announce when you'll be able to change your PSN ID PSN Name Changes Confirmed, Coming to PlayStation Preview Program Soon

The announcement was made in the wee hours on the PlayStation Blog, which said Sony will begin "testing" the long-awaited feature.

Sony Interactive Entertainment will launch a preview program to test PlayStation Network online ID changes at the end of November, ahead of the feature's full release in early 2019, the company announced.

Here's the kicker, because with Sony there usually is one: the name change won't actually work for every game.

If you were to run into multiple issues and wish to undo the change, you will be able to revert the change and go back to your original name. PSN users will also have the option to show their old ID alongside the new one, to make the transition more visible to online friends. However, unlike the previous setting, this option is only available while applying the change and not after.

Your first ID change will be free of charge, allowing you to erase any embarrassing usernames you may still have.

Michael now a Category 1 hurricane
Currently, Leslie is located about 680 miles northeast of Bermuda, with 60 mph sustained winds, and moving east at 12 mph. But forecasters noted there is an increasing risk of unsafe surge, rainfall and wind for those in the cone.


Each player's first name change will be free, while any subsequent changes will cost USD$9.99 - or USD$4.99 for PlayStation Plus members.

Here's another kicker and the key to why PSN ID changes have been such a struggle for PlayStation to implement. Once decided, you won't be able to switch between showing/not showing your old ID. Reverting back to an old ID will resolve most issues caused by the ID change.

Other remarks made by PS execs over the years have led us to believe the change might be hard because certain PSN assets are tied to user names.

There hasn't been a way to change your PSN ID since the PlayStation Network was launched in 2006. Some games released before 1st April 2018 may not play nicely with new names, and in particular this might affect PS3 and PS Vita titles. "The full roll-out of the feature to all PS4 owners is planned for early 2019, so stay tuned for updates down the road!"
