PS5 system software updates are sequential, and while they often look the same, they don’t always serve the same purpose. After the big update of April 13th, also presented by Sony as the first “big” update of the PS5 since its release, this time it’s a return to normal for those interested in the firmware news.

PS5 users around the world could download version 21.01-03.10.00 of the system software for their console for a few tens of minutes. Weighing in at just under 900 MB, this update does not claim a detailed presentation from Sony Interactive Entertainment. As with many other firmware updates uploaded in the past, the Japanese manufacturer states the following:
This system software update improves system performance.
And unfortunately for the curious, the PlayStation official page has not yet been updated with possible detailed information on the posts and other changes proposed by this version 21.01-03.10.00. Because this vague description can still hide interesting elements. And these are sometimes posted on the console’s official website or in Sony’s detailed patch notes.
In addition to the various new features from Sony that we reported to you on April 13th, version 21.01.03.00.00 of the PS5 firmware also contained various fixes and other undisclosed features that Sony does not deem useful for communication would have. For example, this update 21.01.03.00.00 made the display compatible in 1080p / 120 Hz or the option to deactivate HDR for games that are not compatible with this technology.
