Latest PlayStation 5 System Software Update Finally Adds Support for 1440p Resolution

New Gamelists, the much-desired 1440p support, and other improvements are all included in the recently released PS5 system beta update, according to Sony Interactive Entertainment.

Invited beta testers will be able to test out 1440p resolution support, which includes super-sampling support for games with a higher native resolution and a new “Gamelists” feature, according to information published in a new article on the official PlayStation Blog:

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:

  • 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.
