Sony has started to roll out the 868.3MB PS5 firmware 20.02-02.50.00. The update makes some improvements to the PS5 console. This includes fixing an issue that, since launch, could cause the PS5 to prioritize the PS4 version of a game under certain circumstances, even if it was previously upgraded to the PS5 version.

Another component of the PS5 firmware update 20.02-02.50.00 is an improvement in system performance. It is usually a collective term for general improvements and bug fixes. Further details have not yet been given on this point.

Below you can see the changelog for the latest system update:


Version 20.02-02.50.00

  • This system software update improves system performance.
  • In rare cases, the PS4 version of a game would install from the disc after you upgraded to and installed the PS5 version. Now, when you insert the PS4 game disc, the PS4 version won’t install unexpectedly.
  • You can now select and edit video clips using Share Factory Studio from your media gallery.

This time there are apparently no new features. But these should also follow in due course, including support for VRR, 8K resolution and memory expansion.


A delivery or sales number was announced for the first time today for the PS5. More than 4.5 million units of PS5 consoles have been sold so far.
