PS5 Firmware Update

Sony has today deployed a surprise PlayStation 5 firmware update, bringing the OS up to version 21.01-30.10.00. It's a bit of a mouthful and weighs in at 902.3MB, so the patch won't keep you away from your games for too long. However, what does this latest update do? It's nowhere near as important as the previous firmware update, we're afraid to report.

The single patch note reads:

  • This system software update improves system performance.

There may be some hidden changes and features under the hood that Sony hasn't detailed as part of this update, so if that's the case, we'll be sure to cover them here on the site. What minor improvements would you like to see? List them in the comments below.
