No. But PS4 does give you the option of allowing your friends to see your real name in addition to your Online ID. You can also choose to import your Facebook photo to be used as your PSN profile picture if you wish.
Does PS4 offer sub-accounts? How do they work?
Yes. They work exactly the way they do on PS3.
Can my child’s PS3 sub-account be changed to a master account on PS4 once they are past the age of 18?
