Higher resolution

The PS5’s latest update introduces 1440p output



Good news for PlayStation owners. The latest PS5 update introduces 1440p output, so long as your TV or PC monitor supports it. Of course.

The resolution was first made available for PS5 beta participants, but now anyone with the console can benefit from 1440p. Results will vary depending on the game you’re playing.

If the game natively supports 1440p rendering, you will get that. However, if the native resolution is higher, you may enjoy improved anti-aliasing via supersampling.

The update also introduces a few other features. For instance, you can now search YouTube with Voice Command. That’s right. All you have to do is say “Hey PlayStation, find X on YouTube.” No typing required.

If 1440p and speaking to YouTube weren’t enough, the update also introduces a feature that should make organizing your library easier, Gamelists. As the name implies, this allows you to create lists of games.

Each Gamelist can have 100 games, and you can have 15 lists in total. You can also name the list whatever you desire and add the same game to more than one of them.

The PS App has received a new feature that allows you to launch Remote Play sessions directly from the app itself. Personally, that’s not as exciting to me as 1440p or even Gamelists, but I’m sure it’ll benefit someone out there.
