Full HD resolution is good. But it is getting more difficult. That’s why Sony is now offering 1440p for the PS5. What is behind it? And what does the latest Playstation update bring?
The basics in brief
- Sony brings support for 1440p HDMI video output to Playstation 5 via software update, and this corresponds to 2560 x 1440 pixels.
For comparison: Full HD only provides 1920 x 1080 pixels. 1440p is often referred to as WQHD (Wide Quad High Definition) and can be found on Microsoft’s competing console, for example X-Box Series X has been available for quite some time.
Thanks to the update, lists of games can now also be created in the library to be able to sort games by category, for example. Up to 15 menus with a maximum of 100 possible games. Players can now directly compare the audio on the screen and hear if they prefer 3D audio or stereo audio.
In addition to Sony The update simplifies access to ongoing PS5 activities and now also provides the ability to request screen shares from group members.
New functionality for the Playstation app (Android and iOS), such as the ability to start a remote play session directly from the app. The prerequisite is the installation of the PS application and the PS Remote Play application. It should also be possible to ask a member of the group playing on PS5 to share their screen via the app so that they can then continue their game on the mobile device – even on the go.
