A new firmware update for the PS5 is available to download and install now, but don’t expect any major changes. The latest software – which weighs in at around 1.08GB – promises “improved system performance”, so expect various bug fixes and security tweaks behind-the-scenes, rather than any forward-facing features.
For those of you keeping check, the update is labelled 22.02-06.00.01, and you can refer to your console’s Settings to ensure it’s been successfully installed. The last major PS5 firmware update introduced Game Lists and 1440p support, as well as a variety of user interface optimisations. It’s rumoured that Discord will be integrated as part of the platform’s next major update.
