You can finally increase the storage size of your PS5 thanks to a major new software update, plus there’s a new headset on the way!

If you’re a PS5 owner, the next few months are about to get pretty hectic. The good news is that PlayStation has just dropped a software update that should make your system run all the smoother.

The update’s biggest development: You can now FINALLY expand the storage of your PS5. That’s music to the ears of PS5 gamers around the globe constantly juggling their game library. Especially with news that Call of Duty Vanguard may take up a whopping 270GB of space.

To upgrade, you’re going to need to purchase a M.2 SSD that also has a heatsink included. It’s admittedly a pretty tricky process if you’re not overly tech savvy, but there is a PlayStation page that should help simplify matters.

Meanwhile the PS5 software update also now allow for 3D audio support for built-in TV speakers, provides an easier way to track trophies and adds a whole bunch of improvements to the PS Remote Play App and PS App.

In other PS5 news, a brand new Midnight Black PULSE 3D Wireless Headset has also been announced. Building on the galaxy-themed colours introduced for DualSense controllers in June, the new headset shows off two subtly different shades of black with light grey detailing. According to Sony it’s the help “reflect the vision of space through the night sky” which is a description we’re still trying to understand. Either way it’s a real looker if you’re a fan of the darker aesthetic they seem to be pushing lately. Is a black PS5 inbound soon?

The Midnight Black PULSE 3D Wireless Headset will be available at select retailers from Friday, 29 October for RRP $159.95.
