Sony officially deployed a brand new System Software Update for the PS5 on Thursday, May 12, which once again simply improves the system performance of the console.
It isn’t just the PlayStation 5 that received a brand new update this week either. Fans were left rather puzzled after both the PlayStation 3 and PS Vita received new updates a few days ago, with some rather questionable changes in the patch.
The update, which brought the PS3 to version 4.89, made a chance to the account management section of the console. As of the latest system software update, players were no longer able to create brand new accounts directly from their PS3 or PS Vita. Instead, they would be forced to use a computer or mobile device.
Thankfully, the latest PS5 update on May 12 doesn’t make any major changes and is instead another standard patch.
Sony Deploys New PS5 System Software Update
The latest PS5 update was deployed at around 10AM BST and is a little over 1GB in size, so depending on your internet speed, it shouldn’t take you long to update your console.
Unfortunately, there isn’t much to shout about, as the update merely improves system performance. Although, I don’t think any of us have ever seen any drastic improvements after these patches.
