PlayStation Network online ID change feature coming in early 2019

PlayStation have officially confirmed that the ability to change your PSN username is coming, after years of demand.

Details about how the PSN name change will work were also revealed.

The PSN Online ID Change feature beta will initially become available in the PlayStation Preview Program, which includes select users that have participated in system software betas in the past.

All PSN users will be able to change their name once for free, though each subsequent change will cost money. For PlayStation Plus members, it will cost $5 USD/CAD / €4.99 / £3.99 after the first change.

There is a catch in the fact that the name change is compatible with all games published after April 1st, 2018, and "a large majority of the most-played PS4 games that were released before this date".

Your first ID change will be free of charge, allowing you to erase any embarrassing usernames you may still have. This can not be changed after setting it, so your old ID be forever stained onto your profile if choose to do so. However, some PS4, PS3, and PS Vita games will not be compatible, which could cause problems.

Users will be able to change their PlayStation Network Online ID as many times as they want during the preview program. The preview is set to end around November 2018, while full implementation is set for 2019. During the preview program you can revert back if the errors are so busted that you can't use programs correctly.
