PS4 Users Can Display Real Names at Launch

Despite lots of features not being available from the moment you power on your Playstation 4, Sony has confirmed that yet another interesting feature will be available at launch – real user names.

This confirmation comes via Kotaku, who confirmed the news. Microsoft is planning on allowing users to use their real names as well, although the same feature on Xbox One won’t be available for some time.

Using your real name on the Playstation Network or Xbox Live is completely optional, and despite you using your real name, you can still play games under your Playstation Network ID. This means you can display your real name to your friends, but still remain anonymous when you game online under your alias.
