What’s New?

Unfortunately, today’s PS5 update is a bit of a lacklustre one, as the patch notes state that it is simply to improve system performance.

However, it was only just last month that Sony deployed a rather large System Update that not only allowed players to finally install a new SSD expansion but also included updates to the control centre, game library, game version indicators, and plenty more.

Fans are hopeful that similar updates will arrive in the future, but for today’s update, there’s unfortunately nothing exciting to report on. Check out the download size and patch notes below.
