Sony will change your username if it's rude

Sony will change your username if it's rude”

Sony announced back in October that the change was coming, and now it has gone live. You can change your PlayStation Network ID. You can see the full list of games that support PSN ID changes here.

If, however, a user's original online ID has been changed to 'Temp, ' they'll need to spend a bit more time choosing an entirely new name that's a little less risqué.

Because of the way that PSN was built, there was no way to change your PSN ID without losing everything tied to it: game purchases, saves, trophy data, friends, and much more. While the number is to some degree constrained, you should look at it before focusing on a change, as the issues can be serious.

Shuman proceeds to express that ID changes must be done through an internet browser or your PS4. While your first ID change won't cost you anything, subsequent changes will cost £8 - £4 if you're a PlayStation Plus member. There are some games - including a few of Sony's own titles - that are described as having critical issues. Players in North America can change their IDs from today, April 10, while those in Europe can do as such from tomorrow, April 11. As such, games published on or after April 1, 2018 are not included in the Games List, unless a game has been reported and an issue confirmed, in which case we will add the game to the Games List. However, you can revert to an older handle for free at any time, and Sony also says your old IDs will never be up for grabs.

From your PS4 go to [Settings]. Then Online ID:source Sony 6.

Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the change. To change your ID through a web browser, first log in to your PSN account, then select PSN Profile.

Will you change your online ID?

You might not want to celebrate just yet, however - Sony warns that not all games now support the Online ID Change feature, and that you might lose important such as save data, add-ons and trophies if you do decide to do it. The name change comes with the option to display your old name when someone views your profile.
