There's nothing like a fresh PS5 firmware update on a cold winter morning. Sony has just released the latest system software update for PS5, bringing it to version 23.02-08.40.00. So, does this one add any handy new features, or is it another that just improves system performance?

It's closer to the latter, but this time it's more than just Sony's favourite patch note. This update makes security fixes, improvements to messages and usability, and improves system software performance. Here's the official patch notes for this 1.185GB update:

  • We've made some security fixes to the system software.
  • We've improved system software performance and stability.
  • We've improved the messages and usability on some screens.

There you have it. Another winning update for PS5 to really pick up the mid-week slump. Are you as excited about this firmware update as we are? Let us know in the comments section below. And, you know what, just to add some spice, making your comment rhyme would be really nice.
