Of course, for many, the firmware update to wait for is the one that will debut PSN name changes on the platform. Though the beta for name changes began in late October of 2018, Sony has kept quiet about the much coveted feature. Curiously, the company’s silence is also despite the feature’s supposed launch in early 2019. With the early part of the year nearly at an end, surely news of some sort must be on the horizon.
