The new major firmware update for the PlayStation 5 is finally ready. After spending nearly 7 weeks in closed beta testing with a limited number of users, this new firmware will be officially launched tomorrow, September 15, 2021. It will then be available for download to all console owners, without any constraint.
As a reminder, the new firmware brings in particular the long-awaited possibility of extending the internal storage of the console with a PCIe gen 4 SSD in “standard” M.2 format – provided however that this SSD meets a certain number of conditions in terms of performance, cooling and size. We had covered these constraints in detail in a file and a video about the beta firmware, which we invite you to (re) consult.
The expansion of storage is not the only new feature of the update, however. It also contains support for the console’s 3D audio features through a TV’s simple speakers (by surround virtualization, like a soundbar), several user interface adjustments, as well as improvements for Remote Play and screen sharing functions. The complete list of new features is available for consultation on the PlayStation Blog.
