PS5 updates big: M.2 SSD drive support and 3D audio to TV speakers

The PlayStation 5 is getting its second major software update today. The main novelty is the official support for SSD drives , something that allows you to expand the internal storage of the console as long as the device meets certain requirements.

The second great novelty is the arrival of 3D audio to the integrated speakers of televisions . To get the best experience, users will need to measure room acoustics using the DualSense microphone. Below we review all the news.

Once we install the update we can expand the space of our console using M.2 SSD devices . It was already possible to do it with the beta version of the firmware , but now this function reaches the stable version.

We will be able to expand the storage both in the consoles with a disc reader and in the digital editions. Doing so will allow us to download, copy, and launch PS5 and PS4 games directly from the SSD .

Now, not just any M.2 SSD device will do. This must meet a series of requirements that we detail below . Also, it should be noted that not all games will have the same performance if we launch them from the external SSD, since the SSD of the PS5 is optimized to avoid loading times. It is also important to add a heat sink to the SSD.

3D audio reaches the TV speakers

3D Audio

One of the benefits of the PlayStation 5 is 3D audio . This, in short, is used to convert dual channel audio into three-dimensional sound, something designed to improve immersion in games. Until now it only worked when we connected headphones, but with the new update it will also be possible to take advantage of it with the TV speakers .

Once we have activated 3D audio in the menu we will have to measure the acoustics of the room using the DualSense microphone . The objective is that the sound is optimized according to the room and we will have to see how it works.

On the other hand, those users who have the Pulse 3D Wireless headphones will be able to access an equalizer with Sound Controls. Basically, it is an equalizer that allows you to modify the frequencies to suit your preferences.

Other novelties

Although these two are the main novelties, there are other minor ones that we review in this article . Among them, one stands out: the separation of PS4 and PS5 games in the menu .

This has been one of the main headaches with the Sony console and now it has been solved in a very simple way: from now on, if we have installed the PS5 and PS4 edition of the same game, each edition will appear separately on the screen. start .
