PS5 battery failure issue exposed — what you need to know

It appears that the PS5 has a similar, but not identical, problem as the PS4

The issue is tied to the built in CMOS battery, which maintains the system clock when the PS5 is disconnected. If this battery runs out of power, then the console won’t be able to maintain its internal time. This is only an issue if the console is also unable to ping Sony’s servers. For those that have a constant internet connection, then it shouldn’t be a problem. But if Sony were to shut down PS5 servers ten-to-twenty years from now, then games might find that their systems are nothing more than large paperweights.
