PSN ID change could affect these games

If you have not heard, PlayStation fans can now change their PSN ID. The much request feature finally went live this week via a PlayStation Blog post.

Changing your PSN ID for the first time will cost you nothing; each subsequent change will then cost $10 / £8, while being a PS Plus subscriber gets you discounts to $5 / £4.

Of course, such a significant change comes with a catch. Not all PS4 games will function flawlessly with your newly minted PSN ID, and in some case,s the issues can be highly disruptive.

As a result of the preview program, we’ve found an instance where a game did not fully support the feature.

Ideally, any title published on or after April 1, 2018, should support the change, but not every game has been tested with the PSN ID change feature.

A current list of games that have problems has been provided by Sony, and the list will only grow as more players decide to change their PSN IDs further down the line:

Games With Issues Identified

Making a change to your PSN ID may cause the previous ID to remain visible or be gone entirely, user accounts might unlink, and settings may return to default in these titles. Signing out and signing back in should resolve these non-critical issues.
