PSN Name Change Could Potentially Wipe Save Data

After plenty of fan feedback and criticism, Sony is allowing PSN subscribers to change their gamer tags. Unfortunately, this long requested addition may come with more downsides than previously expected.

When the company initially made the announcement, they warned players that their might bring some game and application compatibility issues, but it appears those testing the beta found a disclaimer that warns users they could lose a lot of information attached to their account. Some of this data includes saved data and DLC purchases.

PSN Name Change Could Cost You

This leak comes from beta testers on the ResetEra Forum. The thread points out that not all games and apps support the PSN ID switch, so those that utilize the feature may lose access to content like virtual currency, game progress, trophy completion, and leaderboard data. The users also note that some games may not function properly even when playing offline and the prior PSN ID could still be visible to other players. Those that run into issues will be able to revert back to their old tag at no additional fee, but that may not resolve all of the issues.

As of now, it is hard to tell how widespread these issues are or if this is just Sony attempting to cover their bases in case something goes wrong. It seems like beta testers are warning interested PSN subscribers to hold off on the new feature until more information is revealed about these problems.

Once the beta ends, every PSN user will get one free name change with subsequent changes costing a $10 fee ($5 for PSN Plus). The preview program is set to finish at the end of November with the full feature making its way to consoles in 2019. Every game published after April 1st, 2018 will be compatible and Sony will release a full list of the compatible games when the feature goes live.
