Sony has officially announced that PSN name changing will be coming later this year. Finally. Since day one players have been asking for this feature, and now almost a decade later we’re there. Well done everybody.
The announcement comes from a short post over on the PlayStation Blog, where it’s stated that the first name-changes will happen later this year with a select number of users. Once the testing phase has passed, the feature will be rolled out to everybody in early 2019. So if you’ve been stuck with a silly name for the past decade, a couple more months won’t do you any harm.
What will do you harm is changing it every week. The ability to change your username will be free for the first instance, but after that it will cost £7.99/$9.99/9.99€ for every new change of username. It’ll be a little cheaper for PS Plus members.
It’s taken a long time to get here, but better late than never, right? Now, what will my new username be…
