It seems a long awaited feature is now available on PlayStation 4 and PSN. Users and Gamers around the world will now have the ability to change their PSN Name and UserTag. However it does come at a slight cost.
News From GameSpot
“Sony has confirmed the much-requested PSN name change feature will arrive very soon for PS4 users. Players in North America can change their IDs from today, April 10, while those in Europe can do so 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 goes on to state that ID changes can only be done through a web browser or your PS4–so PS3 and PS Vita users are out of luck. As was previously confirmed, the first change is free, but any subsequent changes to your PSN ID will cost $10 / £8, or $5 / £4 for PS Plus subscribers.” – GAMESPOT
We generally think that this is a much needed positive step for Sony, PlayStation and the future of PSN. So Nice One Sony!
