PS5 System Software Beta Adds 1440p Support

TL;DR: A beta version of the PlayStation 5 system software is now available from Sony, and it adds support for 1440p HDMI visual output, game lists, as well as additional social and quality-of-life features. When playing on a compatible TV or PC monitor, gamers now have an additional visual setting to pick from with 1440p compatibility. Simply choose “Test 1440p Output” under “Screen and Video” options in the system settings to verify compatibility. Super sampling down to 1440p can help games that support higher native resolutions, such 4K, by improving anti-aliasing. It should be noted that the PS5 only supports 1080p and 4K resolutions; 1440p is not supported.

Additionally, a new game  lists feature that streamlines library organization is included in the beta. Users are allowed to make up to 15 game lists, each of which can hold up to 100 games. You can add disc, digital, and streaming games to a list by selecting the “Your Collection” option. Multiple lists can include the same game. Go to “Your Collection” and choose “Create Game list” to start a list. The list can then be expanded upon and given a name. You can select your favorite setting and listen to stereo and 3D audio with the new system update. The ease of access to ongoing activities makes it simpler to resume the action after pausing.

Users can now send voice messages and stickers to groups in the game’s base card thanks to a social media upgrade. Additionally, if you join a party and a member is playing a game you can join, you will now receive a notification. Additionally, you may now ask party members to use “Share Screen” so you can watch them play. According to Sony Interactive Entertainment’s SVP of Platform Experience Hideaki Nishino, beta access is only available to invited participants in particular nations. Players are advised to check their mailbox frequently for an invitation. If everything goes according to plan, Sony hopes to unveil the features to the world later this year.
