In the first beta update of the PS5, we got access to the long-awaited M.2 SSD slot, and now finally, the company is ready to release the update to everyone. However, not to worry if you don’t own a PlayStation 5 yet, because the PS4 is in line for an update, as well. This update will allow party owners to disband without kicking players out individually and view trophies from PS5 games, whether on your profile or someone else’s.
This Wednesday, we expect the second major system update for the PlayStation 5. Everyone who has acquired the system will also experience 3D audio via their TV’s built-in stereo speakers. However, sony is yet to announce any support for Dolby Atmos audio beyond Blu-ray disc playback.
PS5’s DualSense controller will also have an update that is on its way, and this update will let players use the built-in microphone to help calibrate the audio settings to work for their TV and the room in which they are.
For those players who own Sony’s Pulse 3D headset, there will be a new equalizer settings panel in the sound controls menu.
Sony will be offering its PS Remote Play which will now be available when you’re outside of the Wi-Fi range for streaming games or simply browsing the console’s menus. However, Sony recommends that it’s better to have at least 5Mbps of speeds to play the game, with a suggestion of 15Mbps in both directions for the best experience from 5G or 4G LTE connections.
Sony also announced that there is another new feature that won’t be available until September 23rd. This feature will allow players to stream Share Screens from a friend’s PS5 in the PS App on iOS or Android.
This feature will also allow players to join each other party chat, and doing so will let them tune indirectly to a broadcast of the game you’re playing like it’s a personal Twitch.
