PSN ID changes are presently live in North America, Europe, and Australia for all PS4 clients. We have a walkthrough on the best way to change your PSN name, yet Sony has cautioned that a few games have issues after changing your ID. While the number is to some degree constrained, you should look at it before focusing on a change, as the issues can be serious. Fortunately, some real games, including Fortnite and Destiny 2, work successfully without any issue.
Sony has affirmed the much-mentioned PSN name change highlight will arrive very soon for PS4 clients. Players in North America can change their IDs from today, April 10, while those in Europe can do as such from tomorrow, April 11.
“We’re excited to announce that the online ID change feature on PSN is officially launching to all PlayStation 4 owners later today,” Sony’s social media director, Sid Shuman, stated on the PlayStation Blog. “You’ll also be able to change your online ID via a web browser, and that feature will also be available starting today.”
Shuman proceeds to express that ID changes must be done through an internet browser or your PS4. As a result, PS3 and PS Vita clients are out of luck. As was recently affirmed, the main change is free, yet any ensuing changes to your PSN ID will cost $10/£8, or $5/£4 for PS Plus endorsers.
Sorry to have kept you waiting. Took more time to sort this out than I thought. https://t.co/vXfP2DsapV

It’s been a long time due for PSN name changes. In December 2017, PlayStation chief Shawn Layden said he hoped the name change feature would be available by sometime in 2018. However, that didn’t happen. Layden apologised to fans in a Twitter post today.
