Sony has released a PS5 firmware update 20.02-02.50.00 today improving the overall stability of the system and fixing the issue with PS4 discs.
One of the issues that users face on the PS5 was related to how the backward compatibility used to work with retail PS4 discs that also offered a free upgrade for the PS5. In this case, when a user inserts a retail PS4 disc with an upgrade, the console would automatically start installing the PlayStation 4 version instead of the PlayStation 5.
It appears that Sony has finally listened to the demand of fans and fixed this issue through a software update that was released today. The changelog for the new PS5 firmware update 20.02-02.50.00 is available to view below.
Aside from fixing these issues, there doesn’t appear to be any other major change included in the latest firmware update for the PlayStation 5. The generic changelog mentioning that this update improves performance is there but that is the case with most minor updates.
If you have found any other changes or are starting to notice any issues with the console since the installation of this new update, let us know about it in the comments below.
