It looks like PlayStation 5 owners were in for a surprise with a new console update that improves a notable feature. Ever since the PS5 launched in late 2020, PlayStation fans have continued to make it known that Sony has had to do some extra work with the platform’s user interface. And while Sony has taken these criticisms to heart and made minor adjustments over time, not all of the PS5’s annoyances have gone away. Fortunately, regarding the “Explore” section of PS5, it appears that it has now been modified to resemble what was previously seen on PS4.
Over the past week, Sony seems to have slowly started rolling out changes to the Explore tab of the PS5 dashboard. Previously, some PS5 owners were upset with the way the Explore section was presented, mainly because it only served to promote various games on PlayStation. This new edition of the Explore tab now more prominently features its own trophy level and contains a dedicated section for friend activity. While Sony is still touting several new games that are available on PS5 in this section, the settings make it a lot less cumbersome than it once was.
It’s worth noting that this PS5 Explore Page update isn’t actually a console update itself, which means there’s no patch you’ll need to download to receive this change yourself. Also, this change is one that seems to have not rolled out to all PS5 owners around the world. Instead, it looks like these mods are only showing up on PS5 consoles in the United States for now. However, assuming this dashboard overhaul is received positively from fans, it seems likely that all PS5 consoles will get this update in the future.
Have you already received this new update to the Explore section of your own PS5? And what else would you like to see Sony improve on the console in the future? Let me know in the comments or send me a message on Twitter at @MooreMan12.
