- Go to settings.
- Choose "Account Management"
- Go to "Account Information"
- Go to the "profile" option and then go to the "online ID"
- Accept the terms of PSN and then choose continue (You may read the terms if you want complete information)
- Choose continue.
- Enter your new online ID i.e. new name.

The first name change is free. The next name change that you want to do will cost you $4.99 if you're a PlayStation Plus subscriber, or $9.99 if you're a regular user.

Just like your PSN id, you will have to change your entire Xbox gamer tag itself. Here's how you do it.

- Then go to "my profile" and press "A"
- Go to the "customize profile" option.
- Press "A" to change your name.
- Then type down your desired username/gamer tag and confirm it by clicking on yes to change the name.
