    Possibly but I think they have only mentioned changing it to your RL name not changing your actual ID.

    I doubt we'll be able to change it, but you could always start fresh with a new ID. I really hate my ID and wanna make a new one because let's face it my current name sucks. PS4 will probably be what causes me to make a new one.

    After having my id for over 5 years I couldn't see myself ever changing it as it wouldn't feel right. Also since my id is just my name it will make more sense when I add my real life name

    Yeah I don't believe you will be able to change your name, But I heard a lot about using your real life name too. Or maybe have both your RL name and username

    If and when I do get a PS4, I'm keeping the same name I'm using now.

    From what I remember hearing, in order to use your real life name You and your friends must intergrate your ps4 to the recommended social networking site(s) ie Facebook In the video demo the girl was on her phone messaging the player on his console That was a first clue for me

    You can use both your PSN id and your real life name as an alias for your PSN account. It's highly doubtful that we can change our PSN id - the PSN database contains nearly 100 million records...that's a thumping big database to change the primary key, which is probably the PSN id or a cipher for it.

    That said, Japanese PSN accounts have both login names and display names - we might get the option for a display name, which could be changed at will, similar to Steam. Again, doubtful, but it'd be a desirable inclusion.

    Real names only comes into play IF YOU CHOOSE TO SHARE IT. So, you and your real life friends can opt to share your real names with each other, no-one else can see your real name. Both parties must choose the share their real names or it won't be visible.

    Facebook will be optional. The PSN is essentially a social network already, there's no need to integrate it with a third-party.

    The girl in the video is using the PS4 app on Android or iOS.
