PS5: It's in the big system update - all information


Sony today announced the first major system update for the PS5. Owners will get some new features for their console tomorrow. The highlights include other options for managing your storage space. This means that internal game data can be moved to a compatible USB drive. This allows you to expand the console's memory.

If you want to play a track on the USB drive, all you have to do is move it to the internal memory. So you don't have to download games again or copy them from the disc and you can get started faster. An update with which you can also use PS5 games directly via external storage is still in development. Further innovations in the system software concern the console's Share Play. In the future, all PS5 owners will also be able to transfer their games to a friend's PS4 console. They then even have the opportunity to try out the game themselves. Co-op titles can also be played together in this way. A transfer from PS4 to PS5 is also possible.

In addition, Sony has introduced some small changes that will be available on your console from tomorrow. For example, the Game Base has been optimized so that you now have faster access to the important content. If developers approve a game for preload, these titles are now also downloaded in sleep mode with the "Automatic updates" setting. The game library can now also be personalized better.

In the coming weeks, players will be able to join a multiplayer session via the app, manage the console memory or compare trophies with friends. There is no exact date for the update yet.

PS5 Restock Update for PlayStation Direct, Best Buy, Target, Walmart and More

a close up of a sign: <a href="">Sony</a> © Charly Triballeau/AFP/Getty Images Sony's Playstation 5 logo is seen at an electronics store in Tokyo on November 10, 2020, ahead of the gaming console's release scheduled for November 12, 2020.

The PlayStation 5 remains sold out at most major U.S. retailers but good news could be on the way, with restocks potentially set to drop at some point this week.

Newegg released more bundles on Monday, but the restock was quickly snapped up and Sony's next-gen console is no longer available. However, TechRadar reported that PS Direct is expected to release a restock as early as Tuesday, with other retailers potentially following suit later this week.

Here's a breakdown of the latest PS5 stock information from Target, Walmart, GameStop, Antonline, PS Direct, Amazon and more.

Amazon PS5 Restock

The PlayStation 5 remains out of stock at Amazon. A message on the retailer's website indicates that it does not know when or if Sony's next-gen consoles will be back in stock.

Antonline PS5 Restock

The PlayStation 5 is still out of stock at Antonline, which sold out of bundles earlier this month.

The retailer has previously committed to release next-gen consoles and has so far more or less regularly lived up to the pledge. The retailer tends to announce its restocks on Twitter, so gamers should monitor Antonline's social media channels.

Best Buy PS5 Restock

Best Buy is out of PS5 and hasn't released any consoles since March 26.

The retailer released more consoles each Friday for six of the past seven weeks, but the trend has stopped over the last two weeks.

Gamers wanting updates on stock drops should follow Twitter gaming accounts such as @Wario64 and @GYXdeals.
