Sony improves PS5 system performance for the third straight time in latest update


By Ray Ampoloquio December 1, 2021

PS5 owners looking for a more substantial firmware update for December will feel disappointed. 

As per the latest patch notes, the 21.02-04.50.00 update, which Sony released just today, read the same way as versions 21.02-04.03.00 and 21.02-04.02.00.

This is the third straight time that Sony has applied a patch targeting the PS5's system performance. 

What's interesting here is that Sony hasn't exactly specified how these patches are improving the console's performance and why. 

Given that the latest major PS5 update was released in September, it's only natural for fans to expect more before the year ends. 

Hopefully, Sony decides to surprise fans this December with a more substantial PS5 firmware update.
