New PS5 system software update out today

share to other networks share to twitter share to facebook

A new PlayStation 5 system software update is out today. It's not the biggest update, following the larger one a couple of weeks ago.

We've got everything you need to know about it.

Version 21.01-03.10.00 Patch Notes


For now, the patch notes for the new PS5 system software update are limited.

All that's said when you go to download the update is "this system software update improves system performance."

Sony's system update tracker website is yet to update with the full patch notes, if there are indeed any to come, but we'll let you know when it does so.

However, it's unlikely to be anything major, as Sony would undoubtedly have told us if it included something important.

How to Download

If the update does not download automatically when you turn your PS5 on, you can start it manually.

To do so, follow these steps.

  • Select Settings near your profile icon in the top left of the main PS5 menu screen
  • Select 'System' from the list of options that appears
  • Select 'System Software'
  • Select 'System Software Update and Settings'
  • Select 'Update System Software' (it should say 'update available' if there's one waiting to be downloaded)
