It was only recently that Sony deployed new firmware for its famous PlayStation 5. If you are lucky enough to have one (well done, it’s not easy these days), you can now already download it. It won’t change much…at least not yet.

Updates are quite recurrent on PS5: from time to time, Sony likes to release a major update to significantly improve the experience – we think of the one bringing the VRR, for example, for compatible screens – and often, the builder has minimal updates.

The one in question today changes the firmware to 22.02-06.00.02, just a few days after a previous update. Here is the official changelog:

This system software update improves system performance.

Nothing new on the horizon, you will tell us. Except that by digging well, the update announces future small features.

Trophies and activities (soon) in the spotlight

Datamining is a very common activity in the video game industry: it involves searching the files and code of a game or software to find information. And very often, the practice bears these fruits: a good example that this new update of the PS5 since Push Square has made some finds there.

  • The first is a feature for categorizing Activity Cards: for example, by putting them in a “Solo” folder or in another “Multiplayer”.
  • The second concerns the iconic Trophies: a feature will thus make it possible to display the entire list of a game easily, without going through the console menu, directly above the game. Similarly, it will be possible to pin certain trophies in real time, so as not to lose track (a system reminiscent of “trophy tracking”).

note that these features are not yet available but this little leak, with supporting screenshots, indicates that they should indeed land soon. It remains to be seen when.
