if you’ve got the update, activating the new 3D Audio setting is done by going to Settings > Sound > Audio Output, and then turning on the option ‘Enable 3D audio for TV Speakers’.
Sony’s first major software update for the PS5 is adding support for 3D Audio through your TV’s speakers. The update has already been released in beta form to select PS5 users in the UK, US, Canada, Japan, Germany and France.
You can optimise the audio output to match your room, too. The PS5 uses the microphone built into the DualSense controller to measure your room’s acoustics and apply the 3D audio setting that’s best suited to your living space.
There’s plenty else new in the update besides audio. The other significant new feature is support for expanded storage using the M.2 SSD slot. According to Sony, you’ll need an M.2 SSD that’s PCIe Gen4 with read speeds of 5,500MB/s or faster.
Though it can’t guarantee that every storage device with this spec will be compatible, and you might not experience the exact same performance as playing direct from the console itself, the hope is that more concrete information will be available by the time this software update rolls out to the broader PS5-playing public. In the meantime, the Digital Foundry has already done an excellent feature on the available SSDs that meet Sony’s spec – the bad news is that they start at around £200 for 1TB of storage. Ouch.
