What’s New In Today’s PS5 Update?

Unfortunately, there’s not much to get excited about surrounding today’s update as the console patch notes state that it is simply for further stability improvements.


However, there is a lot to look forward to with future PS5 updates. A new beta began rolling out at the beginning of last month with a bunch of new features, all of which will be arriving in a future system software patch.

The beta, which is now available for select testers on PS5 consoles, includes new UI features, Game Base Enhancements, new party chat options, accessibility features, and more.

Currently, it doesn’t seem like the above features are included in today’s PS5 update. Fans can check out the official patch notes for the March 8 system software update further down this article.
