A PS5 system update has landed, improving the system according to just a brief blurb.
The update, listed as version 20.02-02.26.00, only comes in around 850mb, so it’s not a major update, but is likely to address some of the initial issues recently introduced by the console. These include the PS5 download queue bug, which Sony recently offered a workaround that does not include restoring your PS5 to its factory settings, as well as the coil whine sound some users are reporting from their console.
While it’s unclear what issues this update is targeting at the moment, it should help with at least some of the more obvious early issues that Sony’s consoles are facing. In fact, this is not the first PS5 update Sony launched on November 12 following the console’s release in the US. Another patch, PS5 Days An Update, which recently came through promised system improvements.
It is not that these issues have halted the pace of Sony’s console launches. One report claimed that 2.1 and 2.5 million consoles have already been sold, while Jim Ryan claimed that “absolutely everything has been sold”. Demand for both next-gen consoles is currently on the sky, with Xbox also stating that they have launched their biggest UK with the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.
