PS5 System Software Update – Here Are The Changes in 20.02-02.50.00

February's PS5 software update is here.

It’s that time again. Sony has released another PS5 system software update, with the goal of fixing a few issues. This time around we’re at update 20.02-02.50.00 – this is what it fixes.

PS5 system software update 20.02-02.50.00 – What exactly does it fix?

Well, PS5 system software update 20.02-02.50.00 isn’t a huge one, at least in terms of changes. Sony describes the main problem this time out as “The PS4 version of a game was sometimes installed from the PS4 game disc even after upgrading the disc version of a PS4 game to the PS5 version.” Thankfully, that’s what they’re resolving. The update will also, as usual, help to improve “system performance” and will allow players to select and edit video clips using Share Factory Studio from their media galleries.

How big is the PS5 system software update?

This update is a decent sized one, clocking in at just over 850MB. This seems to be a fairly consistent size, however, as the first post-launch system update back in November clocked in at around 800MB.

When is the software update live?

Now! Upon booting up their PS5’s, players should be automatically notified that the update has begun downloading, providing the console is connected to the internet. Should the update fail, Sony has a set of handy instructions on how to fix it through their website.

What’s next for the PS5 in terms of updates?

It’s been recently reported that March’s PS5 software update will address a long-standing issue. On the Samsung website, one of the brand’s community managers stated that players who own Samsung TV’s and have suffered from an issue that has caused unusual output from games on 4K resolution while using HDR and 120Hz features won’t need to worry much longer. He shared that the issue should be resolved in March’s PS5 software update.
