PS5 System Update Fixes PS4 Disc Installation Bug

A new PS5 system update has resolved an issue that caused PS4 game discs to attempt to install the last-gen version of a game, even if it had already been upgraded.The 20.02-02.50.00 update includes Sony’s usual vague disclaimer that it “improves system performance”, but adds details of one more specific change:

“The following issue was resolved: The PS4 version of the game was sometimes installed from the PS4 game disc even after upgrading the disc version of a PS4 game to the PS5 version.”The issue affected cross-gen games such as Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, which saw release on a PS4 disc and would then unlock a PS5 upgrade when used in the newer console. The bug would cause the console to repeatedly attempt to install the PS4 version from the disc, every time it was turned on, despite the PS5 version already being present.

It closes another issue with PS4-PS5 upgrades, after fixes for a download queue bug that blocked PS5 version installations, and a new warning system that shows if you’re starting a PS4 game on your new console.

Sony today announced that it shipped 4.5 million PS5s in 2020 – matching the PS4’s launch. It’s estimated that, in the US, 10-15% of PS5s have been resold for profit.
