If you have a PlayStation Network ID that you're no longer proud of, then here is some good news.

PlayStation has announced that it will start testing a long-awaited feature that will let users change their PSN online ID on the PlayStation 4 console.

It has made this long-awaited feature available to select users in its PlayStation Preview Program, essentially those who pre-registered as beta testers for the PS4 system software.

When the feature goes live in a few months, the first name change will be free but subsequent ones will cost you US$9.99 (RM40) each time.

For PlayStation Plus members, it's US$4.99 (RM20) after the first change, so maybe you'd want to consider change your ID wisely.

The PSN ID change is expected to be accessible from the Settings menu or from the PS4 Profile Page.

Users also get the option to display the previous ID with their new one so friends can still recognise them.

Whether you decide to go with this feature or not, just know that you can't make any more changes after completing the name change process.

The feature will be compatible with all PS4 games published after April 1 and a number of popular titles released before.

A full list of compatible games will be available on the PlayStation website.

The beta test is expected to conclude at the end of November but this feature will only officially become available early next year.
