Update To PS5 Brings 1440p Support
Sony revealed that a new update for its PlayStation 5 gaming console is now bringing support for 1440p output joining 1080p and 2160p resolutions.
The 1440p HDMI video capability is especially popular with gamers who own gaming monitors, although some new TV models are beginning to support the format as well.
In addition, the company said a new global PS5 system software update also brings Gamelists with other social features, like Share Screen, the ability to view players’ profiles and the ability to receive notifications to join a friend’s game more quickly from a party chat.
Further benefits include, a new audio comparison option that enables listening to the difference between stereo output and 3D audio in headsets, access to in-progress activities from game hubs and (for U.S. and U.K. users) flexible support for YouTube Search through voice commands (preview) from anywhere on the PS5 including during game play.
The new features coming to the PS5 platform were originally announced in a July 28th beta-release blog post by Hideaki Nishino, Sony Platform Experience senior VP, and confirmed with the firmware update announcements Wednesday.
Included with the PS5 announcement, the latest blog mentioned that the company is gradually rolling out new features for PS App globally later this month, on iOS and Android.
Among them, PS App users will be able to launch a PS Remote Play session directly from PS App on iOS and Android devices. The PS App will need to be linked to a PS5 in Rest Mode. Then, selecting the “Play Using PS Remote Play” icon, a PS App game hub will automatically launch the game. The PS App and the PS Remote Play app both need to be installed on a mobile device or tablet.
