Sony will finally let you change your PSN Online ID

Also, after you do change your name, you could display your old one to help people recognize who you are.

PlayStation have officially confirmed that the ability to change your PSN username is coming, after years of demand. The PSN Online ID Change feature beta will be a part of the PlayStation Preview Program, and will become available to select users that have pre-registered as testers for previous PlayStation 4 system software betas.

You'll soon be able to change your terribly PSN ID. The standard price for a name change is going to be $9.99, and PlayStation Plus members will only need to pay $4.99.

All PSN users will be able to change their name once for free, though each subsequent change will cost money.

Black Ops 4 Has a 50 GB Update If You're Buying Physical
As a silver lining, series first Blackout Battle Royale mode will be playable at roughly 30% completion (around 16-20GB). For those buying the game digitally on either Xbox One or PS4, you'll be looking at a total of 55 GB to download.

Finally, after months of hints and rumors, Sony has officially announced that the option to change your PSN Online ID is now being tested and will roll out to all PlayStation users in "early 2019" (with earlier testing for members of the PlayStation Preview Program). Are you excited to be able to change that (admit it) slightly embarrassing gamer tag?

All PlayStation 4 games published after April 1, 2018 are compatible with PlayStation Network online ID changes, as are a large majority of the most-played PlayStation 4 games released prior to this date.

Preview program to launch at the end of November. At that time, a full list of compatible games (those published before April 1, 2018) will be released. However, some PS4, PS3, and PS Vita games will not be compatible, which could cause problems. If you run into any issues with the change, PlayStation will let you revert back to your old ID free of charge.
