Secret PS5 Firmware Update Features Spotlights Your Wall of Shame
As previously announced, Sony has phased out the underutilized Accolades feature on PS5 user profiles, and in the latest firmware update, it’s stealthily redesigned the presentation of this area. You’ll now see a clearer breakdown of your Trophies in addition to your three most-played PlayStation games – a wall of shame for many, we suspect.
New Design and Improved Presentation
The latest firmware update for the PlayStation 5 brings a significant change to the user profile layout. Previously, the Accolades feature took up valuable space without offering much value. Sony has now smartly redesigned this area to focus on the two most interesting aspects of a player’s gaming journey: Trophies and top played games.
With the new update, when you navigate to your user profile, you’ll immediately notice a cleaner and more organized presentation. The visual clutter caused by less useful information has been removed, making way for a clearer breakdown of your Trophies and the three most-played PlayStation games.
This redesigned layout allows for a quick glance at a player’s gaming preferences and offers an intuitive way to showcase one’s achievements and time investment in gaming. But as the saying goes, with great power comes great responsibility.
The Wall of Shame
The three most-played PlayStation games section on your user profile has been affectionately dubbed the “wall of shame” by many. It shows the games that have taken up most of your time, potentially exposing your guilty gaming pleasures or revealing a lack of gaming diversity.
While some players may proudly display their favorite titles or showcase their dedication to a specific franchise, others might feel a tinge of embarrassment from having a repetitive or monotonous gaming record. Regardless, it adds an interesting layer to user profiles and sparks conversations among players.
Trophies: A Badge of Honor
One of the highlights of the redesigned user profile layout is the clearer breakdown of Trophies. The Trophy system has been an integral part of PlayStation gaming for years, rewarding players for accomplishing specific in-game tasks and milestones.
By prominently displaying the Trophy count, Sony is emphasizing the importance of achievements and offering a snapshot of a player’s gaming prowess. It provides a quick insight into a player’s tastes, interests, and dedication to their gaming experience.
Future Improvements: PS Stars Rewards
With the recent firmware update, Sony has made significant strides in improving the user profile experience. However, there is still room for enhancement.
Many players have expressed a desire to see the inclusion of PS Stars rewards in the redesigned user profile. PS Stars is a loyalty program that offers various benefits to players, including exclusive discounts, early access to demos, and priority customer support.
Adding PS Stars rewards to the user profile would provide an additional layer of personalization and identity to each player. It would allow players to showcase not only their gaming achievements and preferences but also their dedication and loyalty to the PlayStation ecosystem.
