How to change your PlayStation username 

Sony’s PlayStation 4 is arguably the most popular console available at the moment, selling over 82 million units since its launch back in 2013 alongside the PS4 Pro. While many of the available for the platform are single-player, those that want to play with friends online require a PlayStation Network login.

Likely now you can finally ditch the scourge that is “L33TMoocher420,” or whatever else you thought was funny in high school, to something cooler.

Sadly, changing your PlayStation username is not as simple as typing in a new name and getting back to your favorite game. Thanks to some software issues, it gets a bit more complicated depending on the you still play.

You’ll need either your PlayStation 4 console or access to a web browser in order to change your PlayStation Network ID, also known as a PSN ID — or more generally, your PlayStation handle.

1. From your PlayStation 4, go to Settings -> Account Management -> Account Information -> Profile -> Online ID.

2. You’ll be able to make the change there.

Alternatively, on the web, sign in to your PlayStation Network account, select your profile in the menu bar, and hit the Edit button.

Sony notes that, while a majority of popular PlayStation support changing your username, not every title will play nice with your revised handle.

According to Sony, released after April 1, 2018 are capable of handling your new identity. “However, since they have not all been specifically tested with the feature, we cannot guarantee that they will support it,” Sony said in its announcement of the update.

Since not every game is supported, that could spell the end of your time spent playing your favorite title. Luckily, Sony has a list of tested  to peruse. If your game of choice is one of the titles with critical issues, Sony recommends you not change your username if you want to continue enjoying it.

Keep in mind, that Sony is giving every user one PlayStation username change on the house. But should you want to make yet another tweak to your PSN ID, it’ll cost you $9.99. If you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber, that drops to $4.99.
