Sony has released a new PlayStation 5 system software update today, which brings a handful of improvements to the company’s latest generation gaming console.
The 1.51 GB update, version 23.01-07.20.00, includes the usual unspecified system software performance and stability enhancements, as well as improvements to message usability on some screens. Additionally, the DualSense Edge controller has received a software update to improve its stability.

Since the beginning of 2023, Sony has released a few PlayStation 5 system software updates addressing minor issues, such as the 23.01-07.01.01.00 update, which fixed a Game Library issue and introduced support for new peripherals like the DualSense Edge controller. The last major update, launched in September 2022, added 1440p HDMI Video Output support, Game Base improvements, custom game lists, and more.
While Sony has been fairly active with software updates, the company is also rumored to be working on hardware advancements. Reports suggest that Sony is developing two new PS5 models, one with a detachable disc drive and a full-fledged PS5 Pro, along with a Remote Play-focused handheld device called the Q Lite. Some of this new hardware, such as the new PS5 model compatible with the external disc drive and the Q Lite handheld, is expected to launch this year. We should be hearing more about these developments very soon.
