Sony’s PlayStation 5 receives a new software update, as revealed by the company itself. This patch will focus on improving the overall performance of the system in order to provide an optimized experience for gamers.
Version 21.01-03.21.00 is now available for download by all owners of the latest generation machine. The size of the new update file is 902 MB and can be deployed automatically or manually.
If the console is in sleep mode, the update will install automatically. Otherwise, it will be necessary to go to configuration > system > system software and access the system software update section.
The last patch the PlayStation 5 received was version 21.01-03.20.00, which was released in early June. According to the details provided on Sony’s support page, it improved the stability of the DualSense wireless controller and fixed a bug in its battery indicator.
In turn, this firmware update fixed a bug that restricted the functionality of some screens when the screen reader was enabled and fixed an issue where games that users had hidden on PS4 were not hidden on PS5.
Recently, the Japanese company announced a beta program to allow some users of the PlayStation 5 to have the opportunity to test in advance the new functions that will come to the console. Those interested can register through the official Sony website.
The legacy of one of the oldest and most emblematic studios among Sony’s first-parties has just closed a historic stage. The PlayStation Studios portal has just reaffirmed that Japan Studios no longer exists and has withdrawn its logo to replace it with that of ASOBI. The development team was a part of the SIE from the division’s early days, with the first PS1 in the mid-1990s.
Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan Studio was founded in 1993, months before the launch of the first PlayStation in Japan. It was one of the first first-party studios to focus on creating proprietary games for Sony.
