PS4 Allows Players to Use Real Name Online At Launch
Sony has confirmed that it will allow Playstation 4 users to go by their real name when using the console’s online services. The option will be available from the system’s launch which is in contrast to the Xbox One – the feature will not be available until a later date on Microsoft’s new console.
Gamers are of course under no obligation to reveal their real names and can continue to use a chosen username if they prefer. The thinking behind allowing players to use their real names is to make online gaming more appealing and accessible to wider audiences and create greater integration with social networks.
Decide for yourself how you want to be known online when the PS4 releases, on November 15 in the US and November 29 in the UK.
