The ability to change a PSN ID has been an often repeated request from PlayStation users, and after a beta preview in late 2018, the feature will be available Wednesday for all users. You'll be able to change your ID from Thursday Australian time, although Sony Australia hasn't specified precisely when. 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.
However, one inexplicable drawback of PSN throughout the past decade is that users have been unable to change their names.
You can change your online ID for free, but it will cost money should you decide to change it again.
Games that have critical issues with ID changes - meaning you could lose user-generated content, progress, trophies and saved in-game currency - include Everybody's Golf, Disc Jam, ONRUSH, and LittleBigPlanet 3.
With that, you've completed the change! If you do not own a PS4, you can not change your ID through PS3 or Vita. Input the PSN ID you'd like to use and follow the on-screen prompts to finish the process.More news: Labour Party chief says UK should oppose Assange extradition

Sony said today that ID changes are supported in a "large majority of the most-played PS4 games", but more specifically, only games that launched on or after April 1, 2018 are likely to show changed IDs because those titles were developed with tools that support ID changes.
On the bright side, your first name change is completely free. We expect major issues to occur only in a small number of games.
