Sony has released a new system software update for the PS5, enhancing the overall gaming experience for its users while ensuring that the system stays protected from cyber attacks.
The latest patch, version 23.01-07.01.00, is relatively small, just over 1 GB in size, and boasts of “improved system performance” as per the official patch notes.
Although some users might find the update’s description somewhat vague, it is a common occurrence for system updates to address minor bugs and security issues, which often go unnoticed by the average consumer.
The new system update of PS5
However, this software update is significant in light of the current developments in Sony’s gaming division. There are rumors circulating that the company is actively working on a new PlayStation 5 Pro console, which is expected to release sometime next year. Additionally, reports suggest that Sony will release a revamped version of the standard PS5 with a removable disk drive in September.
While the console’s performance won’t differ from the 2020 release, the timing of this software update is noteworthy given these ongoing developments. In the meantime, PS5 users can download the latest system patch at their convenience, enjoying the improved system performance, bug fixes, and security enhancements that it offers.
Many are still anticipating the integration of Discord
Moreover, as this update may not have the same impact as previous patches that introduced highly requested features like Discord chat support, it ensures that the console remains reliable and secure for gamers.
As always, Sony’s commitment to providing the best gaming experience for its users is evident with the consistent updates and improvements to the PS5 system. To sum this all up, here are all PS5 game releases in 2023, and go mark your calendars down.
