Sony has released another PS5 firmware update 20.02.02.26 today. This new firmware should be available to download now for all regions.
An actual detailed quickfix(for a download issue). :) But it also adds stability.
That was actually the last update, rather than this one, which they have no details for as of yet. The article seemingly muddies the waters so they have something to type lol
^ Still awesome they fixed the download issue so quickly - didn't mean to put a downer on that!
Really no info on the update. I wish Sony would implement early preview for selected PS owners to test uodates.
Always welcome more stability 👌
I clicked through to the article. They don't have any information on what the update consists of, so don't waste your time. The last update fixed the download queue issue. This one is likely general performance/stability, unless Sony release notes to tell us otherwise.
guys Id advise you to unplug external Hdds/SSDs when updating any firmware,.. I've heard of some people having issues because of that.
Did the update with external plugged in an no problems. Then, I am one of those rare lucky 99% who didn’t have any problems yet. Thanks for the heads up thou. :)
Ive heard dozens of problems and haven experienced any of them yet. *knock on wood*
You definitely will hear way more about people with problems online then people without. Most people are like us though and have had no issues yet, the only problems I have with PS5 aren't technical problems or crashes, it's just missing a lot of features and small things like folders, themes etc. One of the things for me is you cannot sort games that are on sale, there are a lot of black Friday sales going on but you wouldn't know it if you are looking at the PS store from the PS5. I have to use the PS app from my phone to check those out. But yea just like you and a ton of others im enjoying the PS5 so far. I feel for anyone that is having problems of course and hope it gets resolved quickly. With the PS5 being sold out everywhere the last thing I would want to do is return, exchange or send it in for repairs. Good luck everyone and have a great day!
The one I bought from Playstation Direct has given me hardly any problems, just a wanky issue with rage 2 on and external HD that when I rebooted the PS5 it downloaded some sort of update for the game and everything has been perfect since...NOW, the one I got for my Nephew from Amazon, is having issues with the external HD file system needing to be repaired and that infinite download issue. I wonder if the ones from Amazon are "B" or "C" stock, and the ones directly from Sony are "A" stock?
Received my PS5 yesterday. I'm mainly a PC gamer, but HOLY SH*T am I impressed! After just playing Astro's Playroom, the DualSense is truly a game changer. Controller has a life of its own! Haha. Anyways, I cannot wait to see how creative Sony gets with it's haptic feedback and mic integration (ex. blowing into the controller).
Don't tell me more... Stabilty improvements?
Is this a complaint?
They complain when the PS5 have bugs and issues, they complain when the fixes are coming, they complain for every reason they can. They as in the ones who don’t, don’t really care or never will have a PS5.
Why would you complain about that? Duhhh
It is a complaint about details... we never have details about those improvements and I'd like to have info about them.
I heard it's very wobbly when placed horizontally, I hope this update makes it more stable
This last gen joke needs ray tracing or something.
I don't think ps4 or xbox one wobbled.
OG PS4 stood on legs on one end and the others were about 1/4 from the other end maybe so it could wobble. but you had to actually force it to just like the ps5. Most don't notice it because the design made it unnoticeable
lol @ the disagrees, people need to learn to take a joke, they probably think I'm a MS fanboy
The official release notes for this update are: - 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. This article doesn't even reference the correct update notes!
Thanks man, those things are good to hear. And yeah, this article is sloppy as hell. I get the struggle to be first, but they could at least update it with actual information once it's available.
Finally can charge my headset in rest mode. .
My main issue with PS5 atm. PS5 games and System updates don't let you know what they updated. I have to literally look it up myself to figure out what was changed smh. They need to add back that option to see patch notes because they still show on ps4 titles. But not PS5 ones. I had to hit twitter and wait hours before I found out the save transfer for Spidey remaster finally worked
More stability incoming!!
I wonder which console (PS4 or PS5) will be more stable by PS6? The PS5 has a high bar hit thanks to the PS4.
Oh I thought was going mad when charged hadn’t charged on rest mode, changed it to power always instead of 3 hours that seemed to do the job but ah least it’s fixed... where’s the folders 🤗🥴😜✌ 127995;😂
Brick console still broken
One of the best fixed, is that PS5 is not installing the PS4 version of an upgraded PS5 game to the Harddrive. I have both Sackboy and Dirt 5 disc version for PS4 and the PS4 version is not installing anymore :-)
