Sony has rolled out the 20.02-02.25.00 system update for PlayStation 5, which weighs in at 866MB.
Specifics aren’t known right now, with the official description simply saying that “This system software update improves system performance.” We’ve contacted Sony for comment on what the update should be changing.
Since launch, unconfirmed reports have pointed to potential issues with PS5’s rest mode and external hard drive-related crashes – this update may be an attempt to fix those.
Sadly, having tested it for myself, this update seemingly does not fix the download queue bug that’s hit Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, among other games.
If you want to download the update manually, head to: Settings > System > System Software > System Software Update and Settings > Update System Software.
The update comes shortly ahead of the PS5’s second launch day on November 19, when it will launch in many new territories, including Europe, following its November 12 release in the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea.
We awarded the PS5 an 8/10 review, saying what it ” lacks in subtlety it makes up for in potential thanks to its rapid SSD and remarkable DualSense controller.” Since release, we’ve put together a feature on 4 things we love about PS5, and four things that need improvement.
