The Disc Jam PS4 name change issue appears to have been resolved. Earlier last month, a much-requested feature to allow Sony fans to change their PlayStation Network ID was finally put into motion. Unfortunately, a handful of games didn't play well with this feature and Disc Jam was one of these games. That issue has now been resolved, although the list of games with name change issues has yet to be updated.

With Disc Jam, a player will get an account for the game automatically created for them based on their PlayStation Network ID. The new feature to change PSN IDs unfortunately meant that players would lose all of their progress in the game as it would create a brand-new account based on their changed name.

DualShockers reports that developer High Horse Entertainment confirmed that they have resolved the Disc Jam Ps4 name change issue. Furthermore, any users who had already changed their name and lost progress should find that any gains made with by their new account will be merged into their old one automatically.

Although the issue with Disc Jam has been fixed, Sony has yet to update the list of games that are having problems when players change their PlayStation Network ID. Here is the list of games that are still on the list (minus Disc Jam, of course):

  • Just Dance 2017
  • LittleBigPlanet 3
  • MLB 14 The Show
  • MLB The Show 16
  • MLB The Show 15
  • The Golf Club 2
  • Worms Battlegrounds
Hopefully, the developers of these titles will be able to sort out the problem in the same way that High Horse Entertainment has. In the meantime, you can pick up a copy of Disc Jam for yourself on the PC via Steam or on the PlayStation 4 via the PlayStation Store at a price of $14.99 or your regional equivalent.

What do you think of the Disc Jam PS4 name change issues being fixed? Do you think the other developers will be able to resolve these problems, especially for the older games on the list? Let us know in the comments below!
