PSN Online ID changes coming in 2019

Long awaited feature entering beta soon, coming to all next year

Posted on

Sony has announced plans to bring the long-awaited feature to users that will allow them 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.

When you change your online ID, you will have the option to display your previous ID with your new ID. Once you decide to display your old ID or not, you won’t be able to adjust this after completing the online ID change process.

This feature is compatible with PS4 games originally published after April 1, 2018, and a large majority of the most-played PS4 games that were released before this date. However, not all games and applications for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita systems are guaranteed to support the online ID change, and users may occasionally encounter issues or errors in certain games. What these errors entail has not been confirmed. When this feature officially launches, a list of compatible games published before April 1, 2018, will be provided for reference before you make a change.

You can revert back to your original ID for free at any time (you will only be able to revert once during the preview program). Reverting back to an old ID will resolve most issues caused by the ID change.

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.
