When you thought updating PlayStation 5's Firmware just to play a video game is enough hassle, Sony kicked things up a notch with confirmation on the DualSense Wireless Controller official page that their upcoming PS5 Controller's device software will also be updatable. 🙃

:idea: PS5 DualSense Controller Jailbreak ETA WEN?! 😜

Located at the bottom of the DualSense Wireless Controller page, here's what it states to quote:

Always update your PS5 system software and the wireless controller device software to the latest version.

Of course, the upside to this PlayStation 5 News is the rare chance that Sony will actually add features with new functionality to the DS5 Controller between a few dozen security and stability updates. 😏

Feel free to drop by our PS5 Forums and share your thoughts on the DualSense Wireless Controller device software updates!

@Chaos Kid , if sony locked the console with that kind of way, how to get used game to play online? Before jailbreak used game / sharing physical disc are way cheaper, can we still share account. In cases of dead ps5. 🙄 The history can always be traced when online by sony right before banned.

@arifx2 of course sony can view the history of consoles they can tell if its been modified and if you have ever hacked anything. All these things sony is doing wouldn't surprise me if they locked hdd to system firmware just to put a bigger stop to copying of games

The xbox one had updateable firmware for the controller i suspect sony is doing this like games that require higher firmware updates to run wanna update gotta update controller firmware too.. which means they probably require higher controller firmware to patch out exploits from being used with that controller

If the control didn't just spoil naturally, now it can also stop working after a simple update.

I hope this does not hinder the use of controller scripts, such as those used by Cronus Zen, Cronus Max etc.

Its unlikely but would be nice if they add windows 10 support, maybe a some official software instead of waiting for something like ds4windows.
