The pricing for PSN name changes mirrors that on Xbox Live, which has allowed users to change their Gamertags since shortly after the Xbox 360 was released in 2005. You also have the option of displaying your earlier name alongside it, so your friends will know who you are.

The PSN Online ID Change feature beta will initially become available in the PlayStation Preview Program, which includes select users that have participated in system software betas in the past.

You'll soon be able to change your terribly PSN ID. For those that do get access, you'll be able to do your first change for free. Now, you won't be able to change your name quite yet, but rest assured that it's coming. For PS Plus members, changes will cost £3.99 / $4.99.

Sony will be testing a feature to let you do just that as part of the PlayStation Preview Program, the company said in a blogpost Wednesday.

The feature will be here soon, and Sony's breakdown makes it sound like a pretty simple process - one that should sound familiar to Xbox users. In the official press release, it writes: "This feature is compatible with PS4 games originally published after 1st April, 2018, and a large majority of the most-played PS4 games that were released before this date".

The Tottenham striker captained England to their first World Cup semi-final in 28 years in Russian Federation this summer. The victor of the prestigious award organised by France Football magazine will be announced on December 3.

For those games that aren't compatible users will be greeted with an error message.

You'll have the option to revert to your old name if you do have issues, but Shuman's exact words are that this will solve most issues.

If you were to run into multiple issues and wish to undo the change, you will be able to revert the change and go back to your original name.

If you've been waiting for the opportunity to change your Playstation Network ID, you can rejoice.

Preview program to launch at the end of November. There'll be a short wait after that, with the feature set to officially roll out for all users sometime in early 2019.
