It’s now obvious that Sony PlayStation 5 will support 4K but the question now is what about 1440p? Obviously the Xbox Series S will support 1440p, as it’s been specifically designed around that resolution, and Microsoft has said the Series X will support it as well, but what about the PlayStation 5?
PlayStation 5 Won’t Support Native 1440p Resolution After All Says Sony
According to the IGN Italy, Sony have officially confirmed that the PS5 doesn’t support 1440p natively. Now, you’ll still be able to connect a 1440p screen to your PS5 and play games, but what you’ll most likely be getting is a 1080p signal upscaled to 1440p, which doesn’t always look great. This isn’t anything new – surprisingly, the PS4 Pro also only supported 1080p and 4K natively even though, functionally, a large number of its games ran at around 1440p.
But anyway this shouldn’t be a big deal in the fact that vast majority of TV’s/Monitors are either 1080p or 4K, with 1440p screens being exceedingly rare.
The PlayStation launches on November 12 or November 19, depending on whether you live in North America/Australia or Europe.
