Previously, two senior executives of Sony’s PlayStation business, Nishino Hideaki, who was in charge of marketing also explained the issue of 1440P resolution in an interview with the media. Sony officially issued
a new announcement today, announcing the start of testing new features for the PlayStation 5, including the introduction of 1440P resolution and allowing players to choose from compatible TVs and monitors. However, it is worth noting that the 1440P resolution does not support variable refresh rate (VRR). Sony began rolling out variable refresh rates to the PlayStation 5 worldwide in April this year, requiring access to an HDMI 2.1-compatible TV or PC monitor to enhance visuals while minimizing or eliminating afterimages.
In addition, Sony has also added a game list function and a new social function in this beta version. The former is designed to make it easier for players to organize games on the console and can be created from the game library, with support for up to 100 games per list and a maximum of 15 lists. The latter adds features such as a Request Share Screen andJoinable Game Notification.
It is understood that the beta version is currently only available to invited users in the United States, Canada, Japan, the United Kingdom, Germany, and France for Sony’s evaluation, and it may be open to all PlayStation 5 players in the coming months.
