PS5: After the big update in September, Sony released a new patch to polish the machine’s performance. PlayStation 5 has recently been updated to add some important functionalities, including the ability to install another SSD hard drive in the console. As of today, Thursday 7 October, it is possible to download a new firmware update, 21.02-04.02.00, a patch that does not add any new features. According to the official description, it is limited to “improving system performance”, a rather diffuse message that they usually use when they publish a minor update. We will have to wait even longer to discover the following functionalities that are coming.
A long list of improvements on the way
In an official PlayStation blog post, Hideaki Nishino, Senior Vice President of Platform Experience, outlined future ambitions: “We have a huge list of features that we would like to implement. In addition, the gaming community also demands a lot from us. For now I just want to say that we are working very hard on these features and many more will be available in the future. ”
Nishino appreciated the community’s support, as he believes his work is focused on designing features that the players will enjoy. “We’re excited to serve them in the best possible way, because that’s our main driver: to provide fans with a quality experience.” He greatly appreciated the feedback received and underlined his commitment to listen to consumers’ comments. “You can rest assured that we will continue to listen to all your opinions and comments, and that my team and I will continue to work to bring you a multitude of features,” he explained.
PS5 went on sale last November 2020. Since launch, the shortage of semiconductors has prevented a normal flow of consoles in stores. This situation is expected to improve in the second half of 2022, leaving delivery problems for at least another six months.
