The PlayStation 5 has received its first post-launch update, which promises improvement for the console's performance. The system update weighs approximately 900MB (866MB to be exact). Sony hasn't released the details on how the update will improve the performance on the PS5.

On the surface, the PS5 launch seemed celebratory, with users stepping into the next generation of gaming. However, the console's launch itself wasn't as smooth as many have come to believe. PS5 users have been experiencing a number of bugs on their new console, including a crash when enabling the Rest Mode, and some external storage errors. Fans have been asking Sony to address these issues as soon as possible, and it seems that the recent update should have some answers.

Most PS5 updates are installed automatically by the console, but if you notice that the new update hasn't been installed on your system, you can follow these steps. Head to Settings on your PS5, then select System, then System Software, then System Software Update and Settings, and then select Update System Software. You will need a stable internet connection to download and install the update.

Besides bugs and stability issues, the PS5 has been a successful console among fans. Not only is the console powerful enough to run next-gen games at stunning details and increased framerate, but also the all-new DualSense controller packs a ton of features.

The PlayStation 5 launched with a good chunk of games, including PlayStation exclusive games like Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Astro's Playroom, Demon's Souls, Spider-Man: Remastered, Sackboy: A Big Adventure, and more.

Recently, Valve also added support for the PS5 DualSense controller on Steam. However, the controller only works partially on Steam, lacking haptic feedback and adaptive trigger features.
