PlayStation Network will finally let you change your old screen name

Playstation Logo

On Wednesday, PlayStation's Sid Shuman announced via a blog post that the PSN Online ID Change feature beta will be coming to the PlayStation Preview Program, and that select users that have registered for PS4 system software betas in the past will be able to test it as well. Subsequent name changes will cost money, with it being $4.99 for PlayStation Plus members and $9.99 for everyone else. You will be able to change your online ID through the settings menu or your profile.

The pricing for PSN name changes mirrors that on Xbox Live, which has allowed users to change their Gamertags since shortly after the Xbox 360 was released in 2005.

Trump to discuss missing journalist with Saudis
The door Mr Khashoggi walked through appeared to be the main entrance of the consulate in Istanbul's 4th Levent neighbourhood. As a columnist for the Washington Post , Khashoggi has criticized Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for his policies.


The first time PSN users change their Online ID it will be free but after that PSN users will charged.

You'll have the option to revert to your old name if you do have issues, but Shuman's exact words are that this will solve most issues.

Black Ops 4's day-one patch is a whopping 50 GB
You still won't be able to play the game until midnight, mind, but at least you'll be able to bang out the download beforehand. This patch is already available for the digital version so only retail copies will be affected by this change.


It will also be compatible with a "large majority" of "the most played PS4 games that were released before this date".

If you're already in the PlayStation Preview Program, you'll be able to try out the PSN name change feature "soon", and keep name-swapping away through the end of November when the preview is scheduled to end. It doesn't sound like you'll get your money back if you paid for the name change, though.

India may continue with Iranian oil imports post sanctions
The EIA reported crude supplies rose by 8 million barrels for the week ended September 28 - the largest weekly climb year to date. The Indian orders have reportedly been placed by Indian Oil Corp (IOC) and Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals Ltd (MRPL).


You'll have the option to show your previous ID alongside your current one in case your friends need to find you, although you'll want to be careful. Be warned, however, once the choice has been made to display the old ID or not, "you won't be able to adjust this after completing the online ID change process". During the preview program you can revert back if the errors are so busted that you can't use programs correctly. "The full roll-out of the feature to all PS4 owners is planned for early 2019, so stay tuned for updates down the road!"
