According to what has emerged on the net in these hours; it seems that Sony has officially confirmed PlayStation 5 Will Not Support 1440p Resolution
According to a new report, the new PlayStation 5 may not support 1440p resolution. The confirmation comes to us officially from Sony Europe which confirms its abandonment of the “intermediate resolution” (as it is called), placed between FullHD 1080p and 4K.
PlayStation 5: long live 4K
Game consoles have always been positioned as elements for home gaming, and as such, we’ve seen them designed for high-performance, high-performance televisions, and monitors. L We’ve also seen the leap from 1080p to 4K for the video you play on consoles, but the 1440p resolution was mostly ignored and this is especially true with PlayStation. The same cannot be said at Microsoft. An example? Xbox S Series.
Previously, an article published by BenQ had suggested that the PS5 could support this feature. Now, IGN Italia’s colleagues are reporting the absence of this option after asking for official information about Sony Europe. The report is as valid as an official announcement from Sony since the publication has the confirmation of the European division of the Japanese giant.
1440p resolution, also known as QHD, has traditionally been the middle ground for PC gamers. Most computer gamers have moved up to 1440p with higher refresh rates as gaming hardware has failed to hit 4K 60 FPS while maintaining an overly acceptable price.
Now, with next-gen consoles, this could be relevant again. Recall that both PS5 and Xbox Series X can reach 4K at 120 fps in the future. Indeed, Microsoft claims that the XSX will be able to play games in 8K in the future. We’ll see. Meanwhile, we don’t understand why Sony has excluded an entire category of users who own QHD monitors.
