After years of debate, Sony is now allowing PlayStation users to change their PSN IDs
For the past few years, PlayStation users have pleaded with Sony to allow them to change their PSN IDs. Until now, users were stuck with whatever ID they registered with—except in special circumstances. A few months ago, Sony put that feature in a beta program and, yesterday, finally launched it.
This ensures that users can now change their PSN IDs, although that doesn't come without a few caveats. For one, users only get one free PSN ID change. So, if your user ID is something obnoxious like "GR8MASTRB8TR", now would be a good time to change it to something a tad more sensible, free of charge.
After the free change, subsequent changes will cost US$9.99 for users who aren't on PS Plus. Those on PS Plus don't get free changes either, as they still have to fork out US$4.99 per change.
The good thing is, users can choose to revert to any of their previous IDs without any charges. Changing to an ID effectively means you've bought it permanently, and are free to revert to it anytime you want.
The ID change is supported by all games launched on or after April 1st 2018, which includes excellent titles like God of War, Red Dead Redemption 2, and Spiderman. The feature is now live in North America, Europe, and Asia.
