Astro's Playroom PS5

Look, we all know what this is going to entail. We've all been here before, and every time, it's the same. Alright, fine, maybe not every time, but most times. PlayStation 5's latest firmware update is ready and available to download right now, and you already know what it does. You've probably already got the words lined up in your mind.

PS5's latest firmware update — version 21.02-04.51.00, if you want to get real nerdy about it — has everyone's favourite patch note:

"This system software update improves system performance."

That's your lot. After using 914MB of your data allowance, your PS5's system performance will be immeasurably better, and we mean that in the literal sense. You can't measure what difference this patch makes. Still, it's worth downloading and installing it all the same.

So, yes, that's that. This author learned of this news shortly after defeating Margit, the Fell Omen using nothing but the basic magic attack his Elden Ring character came with. Felt pretty good. Yeah, we squeezed Elden Ring into this story, and you can't do anything about it.

You know what? Here's what we want you to do. If you're planning on commenting on this article, please do so in the style of an Elden Ring or Souls-esque message. "Didn't expect stability..." for example. Go on, it'll be a laugh.
