Sony has commenced the distribution of a firmware update, version 23.01-07.40.00, for PlayStation 5 (PS5) owners, which promises to enhance the performance and usability of the console. While the details regarding this update remain scarce, Sony has primarily focused on optimizing system stability and improving user-friendliness. It is worth noting that incremental updates such as this one usually do not introduce significant new features, thereby leaving users eagerly anticipating the release of version 8.0.
Considering Sony’s historical update patterns, it can be reasonably assumed that the company is already diligently working on version 8.0, scheduled for release in the fall season. It is highly likely that the beta version of this update will be available to users in the near future. Traditionally, Sony has released two major updates for the PS5 annually. For instance, last year, the beta version of version 6.0 was unveiled in July, followed by the final version in September. It is reasonable to expect a similar timeline for updates this year as well.
