Sony's latest PS5 system software update is just a stability patch.

PS5 System Software Update 21.02-04.02: The corner of the PS5 console is shown against a white background.

Sony has just rolled out PS5 system software update 21.02-04.02.00 This software update only weighs in at a measly 913.5 MB, which suggests this latest patch for the console is focused on stability for the system. The contents of the update, listed as PS5 update 21.02-, have also been detailed by Sony.

This update is described on the PlayStation website as “improving system performance”.  That covers it, not a huge update but it should help your system run smoother.

This is the latest update to arrive for Sony’s new-gen system, with the September system update releasing just a few weeks ago and adding a number of new features, including a revamped Trophies menu, more options for the Game Base, and the unlocking of the M.2 SSD expansion slot, allowing you to upgrade your PS5 SSD.

We are still waiting on additional features like 1440p support and VRR functionality, which are expected to arrive sometime later this year, or early in 2022. While many may hope that today’s update will bring some of these features, its size suggests otherwise.
