Forums - Sony Discussion - Sony to allow PSN ID name change

We’re happy to announce that we will soon begin testing the long-awaited feature that will allow users to change their PlayStation Network Online ID from their PlayStation 4 system. The PSN Online ID Change feature beta will be a part of the PlayStation Preview Program, and will become available to select users that have pre-registered as testers for previous PS4 system software betas.

During the preview program, you will be able to change your online ID as many times as you want. The first change is free, and changes after that will cost $9.99 USD / CAD. For PlayStation Plus members, it will cost $4.99 USD/ CAD after the first change. Changes to online ID can be made through the Settings menu or via the Profile page of your PS4.

The preview program for this feature is scheduled to conclude at the end of November 2018. The full rollout of the feature to all PS4 owners is planned for early 2019, so stay tuned for updates down the road!

Better late than never, right? Even if it will start out as a part of a beta testing, it will ensure the function works properly when it's available to all users.

Having more options is good, but I only see this benefiting the few. I see no need the change mine.

Will definitely be changing mine.

Great news, was never fond of mine so I'll be changing it.
