DualSense Update

The PlayStation 5 launched last month to huge success, with most retailers sold out of the new console.

Games such as Miles Morales, Demon's Souls, Godfall, and Black Ops Cold War helped give Sony a big head start right out of the gate.

New Update

A new system update for the PS5 is live.

The update is the 20.02-02.30 update and also includes an update for the DualSense Controller.

It is a 868MB update, but Sony didn't really reveal what the update was for.

The update just specifies that "This system software update improves system performance."

However, more detailed patch notes have been released online.

Patch Notes

• This system 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.

DualSense Update

There is also a new update for the PS5's DualSense controller.

The update prompt just reads, "A new version of the wireless controller device software is available. Your console won't need to restart for this update."

Sony hasn't released any information regarding what is being updated on the controller, but with so many new features it is understandable that they will be tweaking it often.
