It is always important to be aware that our hardware has the most recent versions of your system software, as many functions may not operate correctly in case there is no update involved.
If you are a user of PlayStation 4, from PlayStation 5 or both, you have probably noticed that the consoles already received new updates of your system software. In the case of PlayStation 4, is the 8.01 and in the case of PlayStation 5 It is the first that the platform receives and it is the version 20.02-02.25.00.
And in case you haven’t noticed yet, we suggest you connect your console or consoles to the Internet as soon as you can.
We are aware that the version 8.00 from PlayStation 4 brought several problems that caused the fury of the fans (stability failures, friend lists and group system were just some of the reports at that time), but we want to think that it was due to the changes of some functions so that they matched with the which were eventually implemented on the PlayStation 5.
What we are going to is that the recommendation is always have an updated console.
Unlike version 8.00, this time Sony does not say specifically what the update consists of 8.01 of the firmware of PlayStation 4 and it is only limited to point out that this is an improvement to the performance of the system.
That Sony statement is what appears in a message when updating the console and in order not to remain in doubt we try to consult the PlayStation support site, but we find the same text.
And as for the version 20.02-02.25.00 from PlayStation 5Sony also does not say what it consists of and again points out that it is a general improvement.
You will need to be aware of any of these system software updates that present problems that are reported by the community.
