PS5 Beep Poll

Just in case you missed it, the next major PS5 firmware update will let you disable the console's infamous 'beep' — the surprisingly loud chirp that occurs whenever you switch your system on. In truth, we've come to embrace the beep, but this news has revealed that some PS5 players aren't too keen on it.

Whether you're just not a fan of the noise, or whether the beep attracts unwanted attention from family members when you're doing some late-night gaming, we can certainly imagine some very select scenarios where the beep isn't ideal. But if we were putting money on it, we'd bet that most people simply don't care about their console's chirping.

Needless to say, it's time for a poll. The firmware is currently in beta — congratulations if you were invited to test it out — and is expected to fully release in the relatively near future. But when it does drop, will you be muting your PS5's beep? Have your say in our poll, and then explain yourself in the comments section below.
