It's PS5 update day! Sony has just pushed out a new system software update for PS5, weighing in at just over 1GB. So, what's the deal? What does this new firmware do, exactly?

System software version 23.01-07.60.00, to give it its full name, does what we all expect (and want). Here are the official patch notes:

  • This system software update improves system performance.

Bart Sony said the line, and everyone cheered. Just a minor update, then, but always worth keeping your console up-to-date. You want your PS5 performing optimally, right? There's no DualSense update this time, so it's just your console that needs updating. It appears to be an optional update, but it should start downloading the next time you turn on your system, so you may as well get it installed.
