PS4 allows real names online at launch

The PS4 will allow players to use their real names online at launch, Sony confirmed to Kotaku. This is an option that isn't available to Xbox One players, at least not in that console's launch window. Microsoft said its lack of real-name support stems from the need to prioritize certain features.

In March, Sony showed off the PS4's ID system, which grants each player two identities: a player handle and a real name. Real names are pulled from Facebook and accessible via name search, but as a default, PS4 won't display a player's true name.
