Sony has released a brand new system update for the PlayStation 4. PS4 system update 5.03 is available as a mandatory update for PlayStation 4 owners. Unfortunately, however, unlike the last major update, version 5.03 doesn’t appear to do an awful lot. According to the anemic patch notes, update 5.03 “improves system performance”. It’s bad news for fans hoping that the new system update would let users change their PSN names. This particular feature should be available within the next year. The news comes as Sony is dealt a blow…
