Here's the kicker, because with Sony there usually is one: the name change won't actually work for every game.

November 2018 is the planned date for the preview program with a full roll out in "early 2019".

As of now, the feature will only be available to PlayStation users that have registered as testers for previous PS4 system software betas.

If you ever wanted to change your PSN Online ID on your PS4 but were frustrated at the lack of ability to do so, there is some good news on the horizon.

As per the EU PlayStation Blog, a "full preview program" is kicking off soon for the PS4 that will allow a PSN ID change.

All PSN users will be able to change their name once for free, though each subsequent change will cost money.

"The first change is free, and changes after that will cost $9.99".

Additionally, when you change your name, "you will have the option to display your previous ID with your new ID, so your friends can recognize you".

During the preview program, users will be able to change their online ID multiple times. However, not all games and applications for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PS Vita are guaranteed to support the change, and users may occasionally encounter issues or errors in certain games. During the preview program you can revert back if the errors are so busted that you can't use programs correctly. In addition, when this feature officially launches, a list of compatible games published before April 1, 2018, will be provided on PlayStation.com for reference before you make a change.
