PS4 System Software Update 5.01 Download Available Now

The firmware 5.00 on PlayStation 4 debuted weeks ago. However, Sony has just released a new update for its console. So, it’s time for you to take the necessary time and download 5.01 update for PS4. As usual, the company also shared the patch notes that inform us of everything we can enjoy once the file is downloaded.


In this case, there is not much to say, as Sony ensures that the update only includes performance improvements for the system. However, the company does not specify whether update 5.01 includes a solution to problems that occurred with the 5.00 firmware installation.

In case you do not remember, some console users reported error E-801809A8. This inconvenience is linked to damaged blu-ray drives and does not allow the latest firmware to be installed successfully. For this reason, Sony said it is already worked on a solution, which would be available soon.

At the moment, there are no reports on whether update 5.01 solves this problem or any other problems related to firmware 5.00. So we will have to wait to know more about it. What is a fact is that to install the new update you will need 357.3MB of free space on your console.
