PlayStation will finally let you change that gamertag you regret choosing

We’re excited to announce that the online ID change feature on PSN is officially launching to all PlayStation 4 owners later today.

It’s taken eight years but Sony will finally let you change that PSN ID you chose back in high school and have regretted for the past half a decade or so.

The first change is free but after that it’ll set you back A$13.99 (or A$6.99 for PS+ members).

While I’m glad I can continue to consolidate my ID’s across all platforms I think the bigger take away from this is that if after eight years of constant pressure from their customers can bring change there’s still (potentially) hope for Twitter to add an edit button.

More information and details about what you can and can’t do with the ID change are available on the PlayStation blog.
