The latest firmware for PlayStation 5 consoles is now out. Apart from the usual system performance improvements, this firmware will also provide support for DualSense Edge.

Sony has just released the newest PlayStation 5 firmware update, version 22.02-06.50.00. Once you fire up your PlayStation 5 console, you will see a notice indicating that the system is ready to download and install the latest firmware update. The update file isn't too large, a little over 1 GB, and it won't take long to resume using your console.

The main features in this firmware update for PlayStation 5 are:

  • The DualSense Edge wireless controller is now supported
  • This system software update improves system performance

It's pretty much like any other update we received on the PlayStation 5 console, except this one will let you use Sony's DualSense Edge, the new fancy, not-so-cheap PlayStation 5 controller set to be launched later this month.

DualSense Edge will be an upgraded version of the already excellent DualSense with new features such as fully customizable joysticks, back-facing buttons, and control profiles, with an initial price of $200.

The January update was not expected to bring significant changes to PlayStation 5 consoles. According to a thread on the Twitter account PlayStation Game Size , the much-anticipated PlayStation 5 firmware version 07.00.00 is expected in February or March 2023, and in this update, we might expect new features such as Discord Voice and customizable themes.
