PlayStation 5 has its first major system update that adds new features and improves old ones. The main innovation was the ability to transfer games to external storage. You won’t be able to play with it, because an external HDD or SSD is useful only as a disk for the temporary storage of games. Still, throwing the game from the “flash drive” to the console is much faster than reinstalling it.
It is noteworthy that on the Xbox Series, users were given this opportunity at the start. And besides, games of the previous generation, which have not yet received “next-gen” patches, can be launched from external disks.
The rest of the improvements relate to social functions. For example, PlayStation 5 users can now create chats with users on PS4 and vice versa. In addition, Share Play now allows owners of next-generation consoles to transfer control to players from a legacy console.
New features also allow you to:
- Disable in-game chat and adjust its volume.
- Preload game updates.
- Hide games in your library.
- Scale the screen.
