Those who are lucky enough to own a PS5, Sony has released the new PS5 update 20.02-02.25.00 November 17 system firmware update. If you find the version naming confusing, you’re not alone. It looks like players will need to get used to a longer way of tagging game updates and system updates this gen.
Clocking in at just 866MB, players shouldn’t expect much from this system update.
New PS5 Update 20.02-02.25.00 November 17 Patch Notes:
Per the system itself, it states “What’s New” as:
- This system software update improves system performance
Yep, that’s basically it. Told you to not expect much.
The overall global launch date (in certain countries) for the PS5 is fast approaching this November 19, while those in Southeast Asia can expect the console to be available to them next month.
If you’re excited for the launch but don’t have a way to get one, maybe try this PS5 Simulator “game” where you can experience the joys of setting up your PS5 in your virtual home (complete with cable management, even!).
