Sony Releases PS5 Firmware Update 21.02-04.03.00 (October 20)

Sony released a new PS5 firmware update and we tell you all the details about it.

PS5 received another firmware update today.

Last month, Sony provided a major PS5 firmware upgrade that added SSD storage expansion.

This was certainly a welcomed addition, as the console is nearing a year since launch and expanded storage was still not an option.

Since then Sony has not really provided any major features for its current-gen console.

Let’s talk some details about the newest PS5 firmware upgrade.

PlayStation 5 Version 21.02-04.03.00 Patch Notes

For those who expected new features included in this PS5 firmware update, you might end up disappointed with this one.

According to Sony’s patch notes for the PS5 Firmware Version 21.02-04.03.00, there are no new features being added to the console.

In fact, this is a regular system software update to improve system performance.

The update is quite small as well, with a total size of 913 MB.

Sadly, this update did not add any exciting new innovations like the features included in the PlayStation 5 September 2021 firmware update.
