If you were to run into multiple issues and wish to undo the change, you will be able to revert the change and go back to your original name.
Sony has announced that the long-rumoured ability to change your PlayStation Network name is officially in the works for PlayStation 4 users.
The preview program for the long-awaited feature will go live at the end of November, 2018, followed by a full rollout scheduled for early 2019 if all goes to plan.
When an online ID is changed, the option to display the previous ID alongside the new one will be available to help your friends recognize you. After that, Sony will charge $9.99 for each ID change, though that price drops to $4.99 if you're a PlayStation Plus subscriber. If you've got one of those PSN names that makes you cringe every time you look at it, you'll soon be able to do something about it and leave that name in the past. So 24 year-old TW33NY_BOppErZ can now rest easy that they can change their handle to something more palatable in the new year. Any name changes after that will cost you $10 a pop.
In the meantime, ID change will be available in beta form through the PlayStation Preview Program. Do you have plans to change your PSN name? They'll give you the option to revert back to your old ID (once), but even then PlayStation can only commit to "most" issues caused by the ID change being resolved. Unfortunately, not all titles will support the new online ID, as Sony explains that players may "occasionally encounter issues or errors in certain games". Some PlayStation 4 games released before April 1, 2018 and all published after that date will support the feature.
So, what do we think?
