A number of PS5 owners have also reported encountering what appears to be a bug related to the console’s Blu-ray drive. As detailed on Reddit and Resetera, the issue results in PS5 discs spinning at various intervals, often loudly. Some users say it happens on the hour every hour, while others claim to have experienced it every 15-20 minutes.
It’s not yet clear if Wednesday’s system update fixes any of these issues.
