The latest operating system update for the PS5 is rolling out today and it brings with it a number of notable features for users. Below we’ll summarize all of the features including some the keys like 1440p support and Game Lists.
First up is the often-requested 1440p support. As originally detailed on PlayStation’s beta blog, 1440p support allows users to play on a new setting which is typically a “sweet spot” for monitors and high-framerate play.
1440p HDMI Video Output
- The PS5 beta introduces support for 1440p HDMI video output, enabling players to choose an additional visual setting on compatible PC monitors and TVs.**
- If the game you’re playing supports 1440p rendering you can experience native 1440p output on your display.
- Or, if you’re playing a game with a higher native resolution like 4K, then you may benefit from improved anti-aliasing through supersampling down to 1440p output.
- You can check if your HDMI device is compatible by selecting “Test 1440p Output” under “Screen and Video” options within system settings.
Gamelists, meanwhile, allow users to organize their games more easily and function very similar to folders.
- In your Game Library you can now create gamelists, which make organizing your games even easier.
- To start, go to the [Your Collection] tab and select [Create Gamelist]. Choose games to add to your gamelist, then decide what to name it.
- You can have up to 15 gamelists and 100 games per gamelist. All games under the “Your Collection” tab of your Game Library can be added to a gamelist, including disc, digital and streaming titles.*** You can also add the same game to multiple gamelists.
There are additional features in today’s update as well including YouTube search through voice, PS App updates, and more. We suggest reading through the full blog post for all of the details!
