Since its release, unconfirmed reports point to potential PS5 hibernation issues and external hard drive crashes – this update may be an attempt to fix them.Unfortunately, after testing it for myself, this update doesn’t seem to fix the download queue that was hit by Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, among other games.
If you want to download the update manually, go to: Settings> System> System software> System software update and settings> System software update.
The update comes shortly before the second day of PS5 release on November 1
We awarded the PS5 an 8/10 review, saying what it “lacks in the subtlety that compensates in potential, thanks to the fast SSD and the remarkable DualSense controller.” Since its launch, we’ve put together a feature for 4 things we like about the PS5 and four things that need improvement.
