The post said: "We're excited to announce that the online ID change feature on PSN is officially launching to all PlayStation 4 owners from tomorrow".

Fans have been clamouring for the chance to get a fresh online ID for years now, particularly if you're still using a name that you got bored of years ago. And now that Sony is finally letting us change our Online ID's, there's nothing to do but scream for joy.

Because not all games and applications for PS4, PS3 and Vita are guaranteed to support ID changes, it's possible you'll occasionally encounter issues or errors with particular games. Sony encourages users to check the list before changing your PSN ID.

They will launch the feature later today - and you will be able to make the adjustments on your PS4 OR on your web browser.so you don't even have to wait until you've finished work/school/college/uni/prison. The first name change will be offered free of charge. All changes after then will cost $9.99/£7.99. Fortunately, the platform holder's made things pretty straightforward, allowing you to swap out your ancient username for a new one on the PlayStation 4 or online. 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.

As far as your friends being able to find you, Sony has provided the option to display your old ID next to your new ID.

Trump Cautious About US-China Trade Deal

If you want to change your ID on your console just go to your PS4's settings, account management, account information, profile, and online ID.

Games published after this date were developed using tools that support online ID change at a system level. Second, in its original announcement, the company revealed that all PS4 games published on or after April 1, 2018 will support the feature. "Do keep in mind that the large majority of most actively played PS4 games support the feature". We've all had them, right?

For example: a game released in 2015 has been re-mastered or re-sold as a complete edition in 2018 will not support the ID change feature.

Some of the issues that can arise include losing "progress within games, including game saved data, leaderboard data, and progress towards Trophies", your previous Online ID remaining visible to you and other players, parts of games not functioning properly "both online and offline". Most of these issues appear to resolvable by logging out and back in, Sony says.
