Weighing in at just over 1GB, the latest system software version 23.01-07.40.00 brings forth only two notable changes:
- We've improved system software performance and stability.
- We've improved the messages and usability on some screens.
While players may not notice anything significant to their consoles after downloading the update, they will undoubtedly appreciate any improvements in system software performance that have been implemented. The last significant update for the PS5 was released in March, introducing the long-awaited Discord voice chat feature, which was only available to Xbox players.
Furthermore, the March update brought along several valuable accessibility and ease-of-use features. These included simplifying the process of data migration between PS5 consoles by using a Wi-Fi or LAN connection, as well as enabling players to update their DualSense Wireless controller device software with a wireless connection.
Speaking of PlayStation, there have been claims suggesting that Sony is preparing to hold another PlayStation Showcase later this year. Although Sony has not confirmed any such plans at this point, it wouldn't be surprising given the somewhat underwhelming reception of last month's showcase.
