PlayStation announce when you'll be able to change your PSN ID

"The PSN Online ID Change feature beta will be a part of the PlayStation Preview Program, and will become available to select users that have pre-registered as testers for previous PS4 system software betas", said Sony. The standard price for a name change is going to be $9.99, and PlayStation Plus members will only need to pay $4.99. This can not be changed after setting it, so your old ID be forever stained onto your profile if choose to do so. This is a choice users will have to make; once you decide to display your old ID or not, you won't be able to change this. However, not all games and applications for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PS Vita are guaranteed to support the change, and users may occasionally encounter issues or errors in certain games.

Not all games will actually support the feature, but PlayStation says "a large majority of the most-played PS4 games" will, as well as any game "originally published after April 1, 2018". You can, however, revert once to your original ID for free, and that should fix any glitches. This preview program will end in November 2018. At that time, a full list of compatible games (those published before April 1, 2018) will be released.
