Asia's Tech News Daily

The latest PS5 software update continues to just improve the system’s performance following two previous updates that did exactly the same.

The 21.02-04.50.00 update – which has begun rolling out from today – just has one patch note which reads: “This system software update improves system performance.” This is also exactly what the two previous updates – version: 21.02-04.03.00 & version: 21.02-04.02.00 – patch notes read too. 

This will be the third time PlayStation has made minor changes to its next-gen console, with the last major update being the version 21.02-04.00.00 patch from September 2021. This previous patch made a number of adjustments including several modifications to the console’s SSD expansion, as well as changes to 3D audio, and the PS5’s home screen.

The latest update could potentially be disappointing for those who were hoping for bigger changes being made to the PS5, especially considering after the 21.02-04.00.00 update in September, PlayStation’s SVP of platform experience Hideaki Nishino shared (via the PlayStation Blog) that “there’s a lot the community is asking for” and that the team was “diligently working on these lists and there will be more coming out in the future”. 

In other PlayStation news, it was recently revealed that Sony could be working on bringing real-time image upscaling to PS5, and potentially PSVR PS5 – thanks to a new patent that was filed by the entertainment company. According to the patent, PlayStation is apparently developing a “computer-implemented method for completing an image” which sounds like it could be similar to Nvidia’s Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) technology.  

Wondering if it’s still worth picking up Sony’s next-gen console? Find out with our PS5 review – one year on.
