PSN ID change feature entering beta, publicly available in 2019

If you've been waiting for the opportunity to change your Playstation Network ID, you can rejoice. Sony announced today on the PlayStation blog that they will soon begin testing the long-awaited ID change feature. Initially, it is only going to be available to Sony's 'Playstation Preview Program', but the feature is planned to be rolled out for everyone in the new year.

Your first ID change will be free of charge, allowing you to erase any embarrassing usernames you may still have. Subsequent changes will cost £7.99/$9.99, or £3.99/$4.99 if you have PlayStation Plus. Additionally, you will have the option to display your old ID so that friends can become accustomed to the change. This cannot be changed after setting it, so your old ID be forever stained onto your profile if choose to do so. If there is any issue after changing your ID, it can be reverted free of charge.

Finally! Now I get to sit here for hours on end trying to think of a different username! The time has finally come!

Hey mods! Can we change our usernames on here next? :P

Long overdue, I've been wanting to change mine for years! Nice to see they're finally allowing this... can we have PSOne Classics on PS4 now please?

Freaking great!
Now I can finally change my middleschool gamertag Beertje1304 (which loosely translates to 'little bear 1304') to something decent...
God I had no imagination for names as a kid.

hasn't japan been able to change their psn name for years now?
i think i did it in the past.
and if so, why has it taken the eu/us side to be so slow and need petitions?

Microzozz allows you to change xbox tag 10 years ago, and psn's just started yet
Well when the system wasnt built to do that... You have to redo a lot or have to try to fit it in and MAKE it work. Ive hated xbox since I could remember. Even though the name change thing was something I wanted for so long, I didnt want to touch that VCR shaped thing.... But now that sony is adding it in, I am super excited!

    i always do hours of research before i buy anything because half the crap you see gets bad reviews especially when it's on sale, stuff is usually on sale because it was a bad deal at full price and nobody was buying it

    No comment on whatever particular unit Kennie bought, don't really care

    Just, in general, sound bars are a scam.
    Gift
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    An actual decent to good sound bar is going to be as expensive as a lower end home theater in a box system with less functionality and a poorer sound stage
    Gift
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Which is to say you're spending so much money to still have 100% of the sound come from the bottom of the TV.

    aye long as you're happy with your purchase that's the important part

    You really can't judge based on video reviews as it's not the pure sound coming from it
    Gift
  • KennieDaMeanie @ KennieDaMeanie:
    So any product reviewer can just say spend $200 more on this cause it sounds better be your own judge

    Plus stores have that 30 day return thing if you're not happy with it return it it shouldn't need to be a huge deal lol

    Does everything I need it to however it's got some peculiarities that either I'm just being big dumb and not understanding right, or are a complete dealbreaker

    I'd love to own a good klipsch or Yamaha receiver but I don't really need to spend $200+ on a receiver living in a single bedroom apartment

    As long as it booms out the crackhead I live around it's good enough

  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Funny that, I actually just replaced a Yamaha receiver, replaced it with a manufacturer refurbished Denon unit
    Gift
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Only reason for replacing is that the Yamaha unit was like 8 years old and didn't support 4k video
    Gift
  • KennieDaMeanie @ KennieDaMeanie:
    Denon makes good shit
    Gift
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    And now that I think of it, only a single device that's plugged into it is even capable of outputting a 4k signal anyway lmfao
