No. The change can only be made through a PS4 system or web browser. If that is the case, you will need to do it through your web browser.
And, possibly more importantly - how much will it cost? Microsoft just offered better, richer online functionality than Sony, functionality worth paying for. Sony is kind of like a drug dealer: the first bump is free, but your next hit is going to cost you. If someone has an active PlayStation Plus subscription, it will be $4.99, but it will be $9.99 if they don't.
Child accounts can not change their online ID. For those who change their PSN ID and later decide they want to revert back to the previous one, this, too, can be done for free. More distressingly, altering your name, according to Sony, could potentially mean losing progress, Trophies, saved data, leaderboard data, and even access to DLC or other paid content you previously purchased.
Sudan protests: Demonstrators wait for army statement
At least 11 people died in the violence, including six members of the armed forces, the information minister has confirmed. Protests against Bashir , who took power in a coup in 1989, have been under way since December.
For those that want to get a PS4 console of their own in India, now might be the ideal time because the nearly ever stagnant prices of the PS4 range of consoles are being discounted.
No, your old online ID is only available to you. This will remain in your Profile for 30 days. Some of the problems, like a game unlinking your PSN account from a publisher ID, or resetting customised settings like audio levels and controller mapping, can be reset. Sony says the name change will be fully supported on games "originally published on or after April 1, 2018", but it can't guarantee that all games will work flawlessly after you change your ID.
Q: Why is it that only games published after April 1, 2018 were developed to support online ID change?
Sadly, changing your PlayStation username is not as simple as typing in a new name and getting back to your favorite game.
It is not possible to change your Online ID via a PS3 or PS Vita. Don't fret, though. As Social Media Director Sid Shuman noted in the blog post, "the large majority of most actively played PS4 games support the feature". Currently, there are only 10 games on the list with known critical issues. Those in the latter, most serious camp include popular games like Bloodborne, Dark Souls II and III, Grand Theft Auto V, and Warframe.
