PS4 Games Causing Issues With PSN ID Name Change


As we’ve reported over the last few hours, PSN ID name change is finally available for all the users on PlayStation 4.

The feature has been long anticipated and has been in beta for a while, before dropping for everyone on PlayStation Network.

Anyway, during testing, Sony has found that the feature could be causing some issues on several games.

Those issues are split into two different tiers: one with marginal problems and the other with critical problems like game saves that get canceled and more.

Let’s look at the full lists.

We suggest that you don’t change your ID at all until you stop playing these games, which luckily enough are not so recent.

Sony has been able to make all the titles released after April 1, 2018, fully compatible with the newest features, so you should manage to have a safe experience on your latest purchases.

As a reminder, the first change is free of charge, and then you’ll be required to pay $9,99 each time you want to change your PSN ID.
