Console owners can finally get rid of their old PSN Online names after users have been calling for the feature for a long time, but the roll out isn't entirely smooth.

As of Thursday (11.04.19), players in the US and Europe can change their ID, but Sony has warned that some older games - those published before April 1, 2018 - may not be compatible with the switch because they were not developed with this in mind.

While 40 or so of these will have "issues" - such old name showing, PSN accounts being unlinked from in-game ones, settings reset - 10 games will have "serious issues".

In a blog post, PlayStation clarified: "We do want to take this opportunity to clarify one point - as a result of the preview program, we've found an instance where a game did not fully support the feature, even though it was originally published after 1st April, 2018, contrary to what we mentioned in our original announcement.

"All PS4 games originally published on or after 1st April, 2018 have been developed to support the online ID change feature, but there may be cases where a game is not fully compatible."
