Update: Here are the updated details shared by Sony:
- This system software update improves system performance
- We fixed an issue that sometimes caused installed disc versions of games to be deleted
- Fixed an issue that prevented the PS5 Wireless Controller from charging in rest mode when it was connected to the PS5’s front USB Type-A port via the USB cable that came with some PS5 consoles
Original News: This week brings us a new PS5 firmware update.
Sony has released a new firmware update for PS5 consoles around the world. The new firmware, version 20.02-02.26.00, arrives one week after 20.02-02.25.00.
And, just like last week, this is also an 868MB download. Plus, you won’t be surprised to learn that Sony hasn’t specified exactly what the update is for. The only known patch available is now famous: ” This system software update improves performance “.
Gamers were probably expecting something more. The console has experienced a number of issues since launch, with the infamous download queue bug, consoles crashing in rest mode, and more.
PS5 also has poor documentation when it comes to some error codes, such as the CE-107863-5, which appears if the console disconnects from the internet while installing disc-based games.
Numerous random crashes have also been reported, and it is still unclear whether the cause is console hardware or firmware.
