Since launch, unconfirmed reports have indicated potential PS5 Rest Mode issues and external hard drive related malfunctions – this update may be an attempt to fix these issues.Unfortunately, after testing it myself, it appears that this update does not fix the download queue bug that plagued Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, among other games.
If you want to download the update manually, head over to: Settings> System> System software> System software and settings update> System software update.
The update comes shortly before the launch of the second PS5 on November 19, as it will be launched in several new regions, including Europe, after being released on November 12 in the United States, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea.
The PS5 gave us an 8/10 review, saying that what it “lacks in precision it makes up for in capabilities thanks to its fast SSD and superb DualSense controller.” Since release, we’ve gathered a feature about 4 things we love about PS5, and four things that need improvement.
