PlayStation 5 is a revolutionary machine, and Sony proved it irrefutably since the launch date of the console. Whether you’re into ray tracing, 3D audio, lack of in-game waiting times, or haptic controllers, the PS5 console has them all. writes that the new system update for PS5 is live now, and it helps the gamers be sure of installing the right version of upgraded PS4 games.

The 20.02-02.50.00 update is ready to download

Those owning a PS5 console have seen a notification saying that the 20.02-02.50.00 update is ready for download. The update is relatively small, but it grants a very useful feature.

The message that appears when the PS5 console turns on wrote that “the following issue was resolved: The PS4 version of the game was sometimes installed from the PS4 game disc even after upgrading the disc version of a PS4 game to the PS5 version.”
