    “But if you’re a gamer… this firmware update will probably be compulsory for you.”

    Proof that wololo is not a gamer!

    Does anyone know if new PS5s bought now still have the original launch firmware on it? Or has Sony been updating the firmware and shipping that in their new shipments?

    I don’t buy my systems with the dream of someone finding a vulnerability sometime, I like to enjoy the evolution of the system and how it matures with time. Keeping yourself from updating (and losing online features) while crossing fingers that it’ll all be worth it someday feels like an incomplete experience to me that just isn’t worth it unless you’re hardly even using the system. When possible, get 2 consoles so you won’t feel like you’re missing out on an opportunity whenever you update. Pretty much every console prior to my ps5 is currently modded, and none of them came from holding back every time there’s an update (especially during the first couple of years).

    The PS4 also got a new update.
    Does something to USB drives so they cant be used on lower firmware consoles anymore.

    They should have called it “Archive on external storage”
    Would have made more sense

    This update contains a patch that updates the wireless controller software. Hopefully this fixes the horrid 5G problems most users were having. I’ll let you know.
