Secret fixes in the last PS5 update?
Good news for gamers, even if direct support for an M.2 SSD is not yet on the agenda, although the update also brought some new “surprises” with it, such as: B. Changes to the 120 FPS, but also in relation to the HDR management of the console. For some users, this latest update seems to have fixed another issue as well.
In fact, those who tend to leave a game disc in their PS5 know that the console gamer tends to boot up fairly regularly, regardless of whether there is one on the console surface or whether we are playing another game loudly too, We still hardly know why.
However, since the last update, it seems that the PS5’s player is no longer (or less) inclined to spin the disc for no reason. Some users state that the disc spins less regularly, makes less noise, but also that the process only takes a few seconds. Push Square magazine also reports that it has seen a significant improvement.
From our side, it actually seems that this accidental start of the disc player is less frequent, but also less lengthy (and therefore less loud). This is excellent news, even if we still struggle to really understand why the console thinks this is necessary in order to spin the Demon’s Souls record while we play a digital version of Sackboy.
