PSN ID / Name Change Confirmed LIVE April 11, 2019

255 posts in this topic

Should also mention that there are reports of the potential to lose save data as well as access to some of your DLCs. At least that was in the beta anyways. Not sure if that's ironed out or not

We need people to do an AMA who have done this and what they have noticed.

November 4th is tomorrow!? Man, did this year fly by..

 

Not sure if you're oblivious or joking. But just in case anyone in the US is confused, It's April 11th, not November 4th.

Some games were tested by playstation with the ID change and showed no issues. But a few games that were tested with the ID change showed content loss, progress loss and in-game currency loss. And lots of games were not even tested. So that’s something to keep in mind.

Sarcasm. But I really don't like that day/month/year format.

Launching tomorrow 11/04 you can change your PSN ID :D

 

https://blog.eu.playstation.com/2019/04/10/psn-online-id-change-feature-launches-for-all-ps4-players-tomorrow/#sf210774800

 

"1. Where and how can I change my online ID?

You can either change your online ID on your PS4 or web browser.

PlayStation 4:

  • Step 1: From your PS4 go to [Settings].
  • Step 2: Select [Account Management] > [Account Information] > [Profile] > [Online ID].
  • Step 3: Enter an Online ID of your choice or choose from one of the suggestions.
  • Step 4: Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the change.

Web browser:

  • Step 1: Sign in to your account on the PlayStation Network and select PSN Profile in the menu.
  • Step 2: Select the Edit button that’s next to your Online ID.
  • Step 3: Enter an Online ID of your choice or choose from one of the suggestions.
  • Step 4: Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the change." 

 

PS3 and PS Vita will not support the ability to change the PSN ID but will show your updated PSN ID (obviously) when its confirmed to be changed. 

 

Please note there are some games that have issues when you change your PSN ID can be found in this link

https://www.playstation.com/en-gb/get-help/help-library/my-account/access-and-details/change-online-id-games/

Finally, the 8 year wait (for me) will be over. 

Oh, noticed JD 2017 has critical issues. Is Just Dance 2016 safe?

I didn’t hear any lost access to DLCs or games as far I searched about when ID change feature was in beta. I even say this about Vita and PS3 content.

 

The only issues I read so far were that someone was no more on Rise of the Tomb Raider’s score attacks leaderboard, but it didn’t affect the medals towards score attack trophies. Another one got his Uncharted 3’s Multiplayer profile reset from scratch. Someone has been removed from The Last of Us’ leaderboard but I suppose that the progression to the online campaign wasn’t affected.

 

I’ll wait a few days to see potential reports on a bigger scale, as I wonder how PSNP will handle the changes.

You’ll keep all the trophies on your current PSN profile, even games released before 2018.

 

As far as I can tell, no save files have been affected when the feature was in beta.

There are way too many games I have played in those lists for me to even consider doing this.

 

I actually just re-downloaded Everybodys Golf last night because I want to go back and finish it off and that's on the critical list.

I'm not sure if I'll do this as it depends on what options are available to me. I would like to cleanup my name a little bit if possible, but I'll wait until we know it's 100% compatible with the site before I try.

Quite more logical than the month/day/year format though... 1f609.png

 

Maybe to you. If someone asks when you were born, do you say (using mine) the 4th day of April, 1988? Or April 4th, 1988? Either way, it's more to say and write in an expanded state.
