Sony released a major PS5 firmware update just last week, adding Discord voice chat integration among many other changes. Despite that, it's already time for another one. Yes, there's a new PS5 system software update, and it's just over 1GB in size. What the flip does this one do, then?

As you might expect, this is a much simpler update. Everyone's favourite patch note makes its grand return:

  • This system software update improves system performance.

We're unsure what this update is targeting precisely, but it must be making some sort of fix to an issue included in last week's big one. It's always worth keeping your PS5 as up-to-date as possible to ensure you're getting the best experience, so while this isn't a mandatory update, you may as well just get it over and done with.
