Our very favourite thing has once again come around: Sony has just dropped another firmware update for PS5. Coming in at about 1.1GB, what the devil does this new system software patch add to the party?

Well, it's nothing huge, but it is more than the usual system performance update. You can now see Parties you've joined in the past, and restart them, rather than set up a whole new room. There are also updates for the Pulse Elite headset and Pulse Explore earbuds, allowing you to use a new equaliser feature, adjust sidetone, and activate them from a simple notification.

Here are the full patch notes:

  • We've added new features in Parties.
    • In the Parties tab, you can now see the list of parties you've joined in the past. You can easily restart a party just by selecting it from the Recent list.
  • We've updated the device software for the PULSE Elite wireless headset and PULSE Explore wireless earbuds.
    • You can now use the sound equaliser feature.
    • You can now use the sidetone feature, which makes it easier for you to hear your own voice in voice chats.
  • When you have a PULSE Elite wireless headset or PULSE Explore wireless earbuds nearby, a notification will now appear to let you connect to them quickly. You can now easily switch the connection from your PC to your PS5 through this notification.
  • We've improved system software performance and stability.
  • We've improved the messages and usability on some screens.
