There was no prior announcement, so you’re probably guessing it’s another incremental update. That said, I actually got the right patch notes this time around. This patch fixes a bug where games hidden on the PS4 will continue to appear on the PS5. Also, the process of copying games from a USB drive to internal storage is more stable.
