Sony recently dropped one of the biggest software updates for the PS5 since its launch. Some of the main changes included 3D audio support for the TV speakers, SSD storage expandability, improvements to the PS app, and some UX improvements. However, according to Hideaki Nishino, senior vice president of Platform Experience, they have a lot more in store.
Nishino spoke to the manager PS Blog on all the changes made with the update and what you can expect to see in the future. âWe launched a lot of features with the September update, but the one I personally like is trophy tracking. Of course, I want to get more trophies and show them off. The trophy tracker makes it easy for me to pin the trophies I’m looking for, âhe said. â3D audio has been a key part of our vision for the PS5: to deliver a truly immersive experience not only through visuals but also audio. ”
He then explained how the team had learned a lot from the PS4. It helped them understand what kinds of features were popular and what didn’t. This gave them a whole host of features that they had already planned before the console launched.
“Did I digest the whole list?” I don’t think so yet. But, there are some interesting, exciting and fantastic ideas on the list. At the same time, we launched the PS5. So we get a bunch of community feedback via social media or system telemetry, as well as the media, my family, my friends. We have tons of comment lists.
âOur updates do not only concern [major] firmware updates, he continued. âIf you look closely at the PS5 system, over the network we change the UX behavior quite often. Sometimes we do personalization for a certain group of people to see how these features are used. So, it’s dynamic now.
While Nishino did not specify what these upcoming features would be, he did mention that they have been requested by the community and that the team is working diligently on their deployment.
For owners of previous generation consoles, the latest PS4 system update seems to have fixed the clock battery issue. This will ensure that the console will no longer make all games unplayable once the battery is depleted.
