PlayStation 5 software update beta details

PlayStation 5 has been one of the most popular consoles since its debut. However, most of the time, it has remained out of stock. Those who, somehow, have managed to buy one, are probably among the most fortunate people on the planet. Well, it’s not an over-exaggeration, by any means, especially when it comes to hardcore gamers.

Meanwhile, coming onto the new leak on the console, then it will soon receive a beta version of the next software update. As you can see in the tweet, above, there are several changes mentioned. Among them, the most important one, perhaps, is surely the VRR (variable refresh rate) in PlayStation 5.

VRR is something that may play a crucial role in enhancing the user experience in terms of giving high frames constantly during gaming. Many players currently have issues about not having continuous 60 fps experience on PlayStation 5. But with a variable refresh rate feature, this might change, as it will ensure that they get smoother frames all the time.
