Sony has confirmed that the PlayStation 5 will be receiving a day one patch, but luckily, it's not a substantial update.
On November 12th and November 19th, the majorly anticipated console will launch around the world, and it's been a long time coming. There was even a moment where it was thought that the next generation of consoles would launch in 2021, owing to the widespread upheaval of various industries caused by the coronavirus. Nevertheless, Microsoft and Sony adapted to a more digital-centric launch of their consoles, with the latter offering regular State of Play showcases which flaunted the power of the PlayStation 5.
It's been difficult to get your hands on either the Xbox Series X or the PlayStation 5, as limited stock and unpunctual announcements for pre-orders left a lot of consumers wanting. To those who have managed to secure a pre-order and those who are homing in on those Black Friday opportunities, you won't be able to get your game on immediately with the PlayStation 5.
Its day one patch is a normal thing to expect for a new console, and it's weighing in at 868MB. However, this is nothing to shrug at, because the contents of the update are pretty crucial. Now, nothing has been specifically said by Sony, but it's likely to address minor hiccups in the operating system and compatibility problems before the PlayStation 5 is really ready to go. And, as far as day one patches go, that's very normal too.
Thankfully, owing to its relatively modest size, this update won't take yonks to download and install. Once it has ironed out the last of the technical wrinkles, you'll be away. Exploring the delightful levels of Astro's Playroom, knocking out the baddies in Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, or scooping up sentient fruits and veg in Bugsnax, the PlayStation 5 launch lineup has something for everyone. Furthermore, the PlayStation 5 Remote Play app is live on the PlayStation 4, which will let you play these games through your current-gen console from another room. Technology has done so much for the human race.
