With the PS5 being such a brand new baby in OS terms, any new update brings a sense of wonder and joy which is just as quickly crushed when reviewing the release notes. A new update was released for the console and wireless controllers today, and, although it’s a good step forward in making the PS5 better, keep your pants on and expectations in check.
Version 20.02-02.30.00 starts with the usual improvement of system performance. From there we move onto a fix that allows us to transfer PS4 data to the PS5 while downloading something, fixes errors in text input, and improves connection stability with wi-fi routers. All of these are things worthy of fixing and better system performance is great. It’s too early to expect much in the way of new features.
I’ll put the full release notes below, and you can check it out on the official page here.
- This system software update improves system performance.
- Resolved an issue where data transfers and downloads were cancelled when trying to download content while a data transfer from a PS4 is in progress.
- Some issues that were causing errors during text input in some PS4 games have been resolved.
- The connection stability has been improved for some Wi-Fi routers.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
