Update: Latest PS5 firmware update that "improves system performance"

By Sean Carey,
Update: Sony has now provided a more detailed set of patch notes over on its website. The firmware update also fixes an issue where games installed from a disc were sometimes deleted and an issue that stopped the DualSense controller from being charged while in rest mode. Here's the full list of changes:
  • This system software update improves system performance.
  • An issue where installed disc versions of games were sometimes deleted was resolved.
  • An issue that prevented the PS5 wireless controller from being charged while in rest mode when connected to the PS5's front side USB Type-A port using the USB cable included with some PS5 consoles was resolved.
Original Story: The second firmware update for the PlayStation 5 is now available to download for all users. The update is the same size as last weeks, weighing in at 868MB, and of course, Sony hasn't really been specific in what the download actually does.

PS5 firmware update

The lone patch note for new firmware version 20.02-02.26.00 simply reads, "This system software update improves system performance." It's that classic patch note we've seen from Sony time and time again. Not that this is a bad thing of course. PS5 owners are probably welcoming an update that improves the console's system performance as users have been reporting several issues such as the nasty download queue bug, a rest mode issue that crashes consoles, and several other problems.

Although the patch note isn't exactly specific on what firmware version 20.02-02.26.00 includes, you should probably download the update as soon as possible anyway. If you notice any changes or fixes, let us know in the comments below.
