The PS5 has a nasty download bug - the only solution is not entirely satisfactory

If you want to download games or apps on your PS5 , a bug can occur that will keep the title in the download queue forever. But there is a remedy.


If you want to put your PS5 into operation on November 19th and download a few games or apps, it could happen that the titles are displayed and supposedly also download, but nothing else happens. Or you get an error message and the download aborts .


If you then visit the download menu, as suggested by the system, you will not find anything there.

How to fix the download bug of the PS5

The PS5 community has already found a solution to the problem - which shouldn't please everyone. Because you have to reset your PS5 to the factory settings. However, this will delete all your data from the console that you should back up beforehand - either on an external hard drive or in the cloud of the PS Plus service. Note that PS5 games cannot be backed up via USB.


To reset the console you proceed as follows:


  • Visit the "Settings" menu under "System"
  • Select "System Software" here
  • Select "Reset Options" and then "Reset your console"
  • Now you have to do the reset


The downloads should then work normally again. It can be assumed that Sony will soon fix this bug with a patch or firmware update .
