“During the preview program, you will be able to change your online ID as many times as you want. The first change is free, and changes after that will cost $9.99 USD / CAD. For PlayStation Plus members, it will cost $4.99 USD/ CAD after the first change.”
One interesting thing to note is this bit: “This feature is compatible with PS4 games originally published after April 1, 2018, and a large majority of the most-played PS4 games that were released before this date. However, please note not all games and applications for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita systems are guaranteed to support the online ID change, and users may occasionally encounter issues or errors in certain games.”
Not sure how friends list and name changes work on other services like Xbox Live, but I’d be interested to see how this part shakes out.
Anyway, I likely won’t be using this feature, I’m happy with my ‘BlueBl1zzard’ I’ve kept throughout the years, but it’s cool other users who’ve wanted to change their names for so long finally get the chance. Fellow Waypointers, excited or nah?
