New PS5 Update Improves System Performance, Addresses Disc Data Deletion, And More

As is typical with most newly released consoles, Sony has already released numerous system software updates for the PS5 since the console’s launch earlier this month. Yet another update was released last night, and while it was a minor one, it aims to take care of a few nagging issues players have been having lately.

Listed as Version 20.02-02.26.00, the new PS5 system update is first and foremost noted as improving system performance, though that’s been a staple on most of the console’s update notes. Thankfully Sony’s support site for the console is a bit more long-winded, where it’s revealed that the update also addresses two other issues that have been throwing some gamers for a loop since the PS5’s launch. Here are the full update notes:

  • This system software update improves system performance.
  • An issue where installed disc versions of games were sometimes deleted was resolved.
  • An issue that prevented the PS5 wireless controller from being charged while in rest mode when connected to the PS5’s front side USB Type-A port using the USB cable included with some PS5 consoles was resolved.

Both of the latter issues listed above were seemingly not too common of a problem, though it’s good to know that Sony is quickly plugging in any holes in its next-gen console’s software. We can only hope that Sony will go about addressing some of the other missing features players have been requesting.  The system update is now available for download, so users will automatically be prompted to download and install it upon booting up their console.
