One of the more curious community building features of the PlayStation 4 is it allowing players to use their real names instead of made up online handles- and this is a feature that will be available to players right off the bat, Sony has confirmed, reports Kotaku.

For those who value their privacy while playing online, Sony asserts that this is only an option, and by no means mandatory or even recommended to enjoy the PlayStation 4 experience. Perhaps equally importantly, even those who choose to use their real identities on the PlayStation Network can use nicknames and aliases while playing games online. So it seems to be a pretty flexible set of options, tailored to make you comfortable.

The Xbox One will have this feature too, although it won’t be available at launch; Microsoft has confirmed that it plans on making the feature available in an update at a later date.
