Almost five months to the day of the PlayStation 5 Sony has announced the first big update for the console. New storage management, personalization options, and social features, (that last one is also coming to the PS4).
“Store PS5 Games on Compatible External USB Drives. With this feature, you can now transfer your PS5 games to USB extended storage from your console’s internal storage. It’s a great way to extend the storage capabilities of your PS5 console, and you can seamlessly copy your PS5 games back to the console’s internal storage when you’re ready to play. It is faster to reinstall PS5 games from USB extended storage than to re-download or copy them from a disc.”
The PlayStation App is also getting some new features in the near future, “...the ability to join a multiplayer session on PS5 from the app, manage your PS5 console storage, compare trophy collections with friends, and sort and filter products shown in the PlayStation Store.”
