The much awaited PSN name change feature rolls out for PS4 users today. Sony confirmed this with a post on its site. The first name change for your PSN Online ID is free with subsequent changes costing $10 (around Rs. 700) for non-PS Plus subscribers and $5 (close to Rs. 350) for PS Plus subscribers. In addition to this, Sony has put together a list of games that may be impacted by the PSN name change. Issues include losing save progress, saved game data, leaderboard data, and progress towards trophies. Players may also lose access to content (paid or otherwise) acquired for games such as add-ons and virtual currency.
You can check out the full list of games supported and impacted by PSN name changes here. When you change your online ID, you will have the option to display your previous ID with your new ID, so your friends can recognise you. Once you decide to display your old ID or not, you won't be able to adjust this after completing the online ID change process.
