New PS5 update with M.2 SSD support coming tomorrow

Tomorrow a new system update for PlayStation 5 will be released worldwide.

The firmware update has been available to beta testers for a while, but will be released tomorrow for everyone. The patch will allow gamers to expand their storage space with M.2 SSDs.

Users can expand the storage by removing the console cover and removing the internal slot SSD holder with a screwdriver. SSDs must also meet a number of requirements. For example, a speed of 5.5 GB/s is required and the component may not be wider than 22 mm. The full list of requirements can be found on the PlayStation website. Once installed it is possible to download or move games to the disc.

Furthermore, players can customize their control center after downloading the update. 3D audio can also be heard through speakers, where users can measure the acoustics of the room with the microphone of the DualSense. Also, different versions of games, such as the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 versions, are displayed separately on the Home screen and more clearly indicated with an icon. Furthermore, the library should be more organized by displaying installed games first.
