Sony has not long made a pretty major system software update for PS5, adding support for Discord voice calls among many other improvements. Since then, it's released a smaller update (with everyone's favourite patch note), and now, the platform holder has just pushed out another one. What's this one all about, then?
The 834MB patch (version 23.01-07.01.01 if you're interested) doesn't show any patch notes on the system itself, but via the PlayStation website, we've found out what this update covers. As it turns out, it's a minor bug fix for an issue affecting the game library:
"An issue in Game Library where content was displayed incorrectly under certain conditions was resolved."
And that's it! Not even the usual "improves system software performance". A teeny tiny update, then, but still worth downloading and installing to be on the safe side. It's available right now.
Have you had any trouble with the game library on PS5? Update your console in the comments section below.
Please add the version number!
834 MB - for a minor update it looks huge though.
Updated the article with more details.
@Soulless666 That's basically every update's size. It's just replacing the entire firmware with a new version, which is not an unusual way to do it.
Tonite there's gona be a jailbreak!
I want a "sink the game sizes" update, so my 2 M2 SSDs aren't always full. 😂
C'mon Sony pull yer finger out!
When will they roll out a firmware update for PSVR2? I'm still having trouble with the sense controllers.
@sanderson72 Themes wouldn't make sense on PS5 since every game has its own background
Stability improvements? Oh wait ... that's Switch.
For the love of all that is holy, let us check for game updates via the Library page!
Images could get corrupted if you browsed through any uncached game art while downloading a game or update in the background. The only way to fix it was to stop all downloads and rebuild the entire database. Hopefully this fixed it.
@Soulless666 Huge? That's not hardly anything at all. The base PS5 SSD can hold 800 of those.
I just realized I didn't get this update at all
@spoonard yes, but when it comes to storing games there it becomes nothing. Anyway, it’s clear already they deploy the entire image, not separate updates, that’s why the size is so big for regular updates.
@sanderson72 Where are my folders!?!?!?
Anyone else's update install in a weird way? Console did not do the usual restart. I actually thought it crashed during install but then it sorted itself out.....
Yeah my ps+ premium I have the other day I was playing horizon forbidden west and I kept getting a pop up saying expires in 15 minutes 10 and so on it didn't. I was like hang on a moment its part of my ps+ teir so it can't expire as long as I'm subbed.
@Milt Themes would actually make sense if Sony ever get round to giving the PS5 some PS4-esque folders as that way the top level could have a common theme and then when you go into a game, the game's theme and ditty can take over. It'd also be nice to get rid of that dreary 'music' that accompanies the PS5's UI.
@__jamiie Dunno - you'd have thought they would have sorted something so obviously missing by now. It'd be nice to stop expanding that massive, ever scrolling list of games. It is a great feature on the PS4 so I'm still somewhat baffled by its absence. Maybe themes and folders will arrive in the same update?
I haven't noticed any Game Library glitches, but then again I rarely go in there.
Why is every patch and update now as big as games used to be? Heck, some are bigger than old operating systems for pc's.
