Here Are The Games That Might Have Issues With Your PSN ID Change

Though PlayStation fans are now able to change their original PlayStation Network (PSN) ID, this has created a few issues with games. In fact, there might be a big risk when it comes to changing your ID, as some games are unable to properly support the change.

For anyone who chose their handle back when PSN first came out, the opportunity to change it at last is a great relief. The first rename will be free, then subsequent ones will attract a small charge. However, the change has not been seamless or problem free.

While most games released after April 1 are said to support the changing of IDs, there appear to be a couple of exceptions. Some older titles are also having issues, with some more major than others. So, before you hit that name change button, check out this list of PlayStation 4 games to see if you are likely to encounter any problems.
