Everything about the most recent PS5 Software Update

Here are all the new features in the recently released PlayStation 5 system software-update!

Published on: 19-04-2021

1. External USB Storage


The showpiece of this update is the ability to now transfer your games to an external USB storage. So great that this is possible now, and at a much faster uploading speed than you are used to. But beware: you cannot play your PlayStation games directly from this external storage. However, you can store a lot many more games on your PS5 now, which is a true blessing!

Also, don’t forget to first download the games onto your PS5. Unfortunately, it is not possible to download directly to the HDD. Your HDD device must also at least comply with SuperSpeed ​​USB 5 Gbps, more is always allowed, but less than that is simply not sufficient.

2. 120Hz Support


In addition to the external storage function, 120Hz support has now been added as well as major improvements in the HDR area. You can automatically switch to non-HDR if a game or app does not support this. A very easy One-Touch Play function has been added, which allows you to set your TV to turn on automatically when you start up your PS5. You can also arrange it so that your PS5 goes into rest mode (or switches off) when you turn your TV off. It’s the little things in life that make all the difference, right?

3. Cross-gen Share Play between PS4 and PS5


Finally, this update comes with cross-gen Share Play, where PS4 and PS5 players can both use Share Play while in a Party. As a PS4 gamer, you can now also watch the PS5 games. The PS5 players can share their screen very easily. Virtual co-op is now also supported and switching between Parties and Friends in the Game Base is a lot easier.
