PlayStation has announced that PS4 players can start to change their PlayStation ID (PSN ID) starting now, either on their PlayStation 4 or on the web.

This has been a highly requested feature for PlayStation for years, as many users have been wanting to change their users names. The feature was first announced in October and featured a closed access testing period as PlayStation was checking to see which games can support the new PSN ID.

How to change your PlayStation Network ID:

PlayStation 4:

  • Step 1: From your PS4 go to [Settings].
  • Step 2: Select [Account Management] > [Account Information] > [Profile] > [Online ID].
  • Step 3: Enter an Online ID of your choice or choose from one of the suggestions.
  • Step 4: Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the change.

Web browser:

  • Step 1: Sign in to your PlayStation Network account and select PSN Profile in the menu.
  • Step 2: Select the Edit button that’s next to your Online ID.
  • Step 3: Enter an Online ID of your choice or choose from one of the suggestions.

There’s no restriction on how many times you can change your name. And, if you want to revert back to one of your old ones, you can do so as many times as you want. The only thing there is is that the first name change is free; the next name changes are $9.99 USD ($4.99 for PS Plus members).

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 for each change after the first one.

Before you change, ensure that the games you play supports the name changing feature. If the game does not support it, there could be issues with the game showcasing your stats or account details. The full list of games supported is here;

Here’s the list of Call of Duty games that are supported for it:
