PlayStation 4 users can finally change their PSN Online ID starting today in North America and tomorrow in Europe. Here's how the process works. Sony first announced that the ability to change your Online ID was coming last October.
After the free change, subsequent changes will cost US$9.99 for users who aren't on PS Plus.
On your PS4 itself by going to [Settings] then selecting [Account Management] [Account Information] [Profile] [Online ID].
Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the change.
It was back in October past year that we first heard of the possibility of changing PlayStation Network (PSN) IDs.

Unfortunately, changing names has also been reported to cause issues in rarer instances, with Sony warning players that Online IDs might only be visible to the user, saved data, leaderboard data, and progress towards Trophies might be lost and DLC might become inaccessible.
As previously noted, you'll only be able to change your PSN ID either through a PS4 console or a browser; you can't do so on PS3 or Vita. If you do not own a PS4, you can not change your ID through PS3 or Vita. For one, users only get one free PSN ID change. As Sony subtly reminds us the backend is kind of a mess, so the only games guaranteed to support the ID change are ones published "after April 1, 2018".
Sony has a large, multi-tiered list of PS4 games it's tested for issues related to changing your name.
Keep in mind that there's a fee associated with changing your ID. Reverting back to an old name is possible and doesn't cost any money. For example, games like Everybody's Golf, LittleBigPlanet 3, MLB The Show 14, MLB The Show 15, MLB The Show 16, and Worms Battlegrounds all have Critical Issues with the feature.
The full supported games list can be found here.
Sony is giving every user one PlayStation username change on the house. Sony Interactive Entertainment Singapore (SIES) says that games published after 1 April will be fine, as well as a number of other popular PS4 games. Games with critical issues might result in lost progress, or they could even lose in-game currency.
