Sony has a long list of ‘interesting, exciting and fantastic ideas’

    Online stores may have run out of PlayStation 5 compatible SSDs by now, but the new system firmware upgrade has finally enabled everyone to use one. Enabling internal bay access was included in the console’s largest patch, but the PS5 generation is still young, and Sony has many possible features that it may choose to incorporate in the future.

    According to Hideaki Nishino, senior vice president of platform experience, the company already has a list of ideas. In a new PlayStation Blog article, the lead architect is questioned about the work that goes into PS5 firmware updates and what kind of improvements future patches might include.

    “The PS4 taught us a lot, and we’re still learning about how gamers use the device and how games behave. We know which features are widely accepted and popular, as well as those are rarely used. So, prior to the release of the PS5, we had a long list of things we wanted. In fact, we dreamed of doing it all.”

    Nishino then describes Sony’s “interesting, exciting, and great ideas” for future PS5 firmware updates.

    “The community is also requesting a great deal. In Japanese, I indicate that I am diligently working on these lists and that there will be more to come in the future.”

    The chief architect concludes by thanking the community for their comments and support, applauding the ideas received, and emphasizing “how much the community loves the PlayStation.”
