PS5 Firmware Update

Sony has today deployed a new PlayStation 5 firmware update, bringing the console up to version 21.01- (yes, really). Weighing in at 902.3MB, it should only take you a few minutes to install. What does the patch actually do, you ask? Well, here's the single note associated with the update:

  • This system software update improves system performance.

Yep, it's another one of those. However, the second update which follows immediately afterwards is more interesting. The PS5 DualSense controller can be updated with new firmware, and according to Reddit, this patch fixes the glitch associated with the battery charging indicator. It should now fill correctly once the USB-C cable has been plugged in. If any more hidden features are discovered, we'll be sure to report them back to you.
