PlayStation announced that the first major system software update for PlayStation 5 will be released tomorrow, bringing improvements to other social features as well as the ability to store PS5 video games on USB extended storage. This update includes, among other things, cross-generational shared play, improved game-based menus, and a variety of other customization options. It doesn’t seem to completely revolutionize the PS5 experience, but it should be better than before.
All social feature updates are worth having and reading, but arguably the most important for those with a PS5 is the USB extended storage change. With this update, players will be able to transfer PS5 video games from the console itself to USB extended storage and undo them if needed. And one of the big drawbacks of the new update is that PS5 video games can be stored on USB extended storage, but it’s almost certain that you can’t actually play from there.
The first major system software update for PS5 will arrive tomorrow.
