After years of PlayStation owners being unable to change their PSN names, Sony has officially announced that they will soon be testing the PSN Online ID Change feature beta to allow users around the world to finally change their IDs. However, only users who've registered for previous system software betas will be eligible. Some games released before 1st April 2018 may not play nicely with new names, and in particular this might affect PS3 and PS Vita titles. If this is an issue, you can revert back to the original name for free at any time (but just once during the preview program). PSN users will also have the option to show their old ID alongside the new one, to make the transition more visible to online friends. However, unlike the previous setting, this option is only available while applying the change and not after. Any name changes after that will cost you $10 a pop. This will be useful if you encounter problems with an older game or application, or if you simply decide that you liked your old name better than the new one. The pricing for Europe will be €9.99/£7.99 for regular PSN members, and €4.99/£3.99 for PlayStation Plus subscribers.
All games released after April 1, 2018 will be compatible, while developers have been hard at work to get the feature working on games released prior. So 24 year-old TW33NY_BOppErZ can now rest easy that they can change their handle to something more palatable in the new year.

Trump has insisted the global community must stick to the sanctions against North Korea until Kim denuclearises. Denuclearisation of North Korea is "a long process", Pompeo said, adding: "We made significant progress".
If you're already in the PlayStation Preview Program, you'll be able to try out the PSN name change feature "soon", and keep name-swapping away through the end of November when the preview is scheduled to end.
During the preview, you will be able to change your online ID as many times as you want.
