I got word of the news via Twitter and this was very long awaited for us Playstation gamers. Say RIP to those old names and feel free to share your new ones or your thoughts below.

Word of caution.

When I first heard about this they said it could cause problems with some games. Especially older ones but newer ones as well.

@dernman: Yup. They have lists for unaffected games, games with minor issues and games with major issues. I went over the list and luckily it doesn't affect any games I play outside of GTA V (which hardly has a issue from what I read on Rockstar Games).

I have seen some people having problems on Reddit as well.

If any of the games you play released after April 2018 then you're in the clear

It comes with risks, and a lot of them. So I'll keep mine goofy until there's no more risks.

I feel the same way and I want to change it. It's so blah because I was in a rush.

If you're a casual gamer like me then there's not much to worry about. If you're a dedicated gamer then yeah probably not worth the risk until Sony/PlayStation fix all issues.

It is so much simpler if you're a Xbox person

@somayareece: I don't even think casuals would wanna take the risk to lose all their progress on one of their favorite games over a name change.

@batmanplusjay: That is just an exaggeration. There aren't games where people are just losing progress. There have only been reports of other issues.
