PS5 system software update with 1440p and UI improvements rolled out

The latest OS update for the PS5 is rolling out today and brings a number of notable features for users. Below, we’ll summarize all the features, including some of the touches like 1440p support and game listings.

The first is the oft-requested 1440p support. As originally reported on the PlayStation Beta Blog, 1440p support allows users to play on a new setting that is typically a “sweet spot” for high frame rate monitors and gaming.

1440p HDMI video output

  • The PS5 beta introduces support for 1440p HDMI video output, allowing players to choose additional visual tuning on compatible PC monitors and TVs.**
  • If the game you are playing supports 1440p rendering, you can enjoy native 1440p output to your display.
  • Or, if you’re playing a game at a higher native resolution like 4K, you can experience improved anti-aliasing through upsampling up to 1440p output.
  • You can check if your HDMI device is compatible by selecting “Test 1440p Output” under “Screen & Video” options in System Settings.

Game lists, on the other hand, allow users to organize their games more easily and work very similarly to folders.

  • In your game library, you can now create game lists, making it even easier to organize your games.
  • To get started, go to [Your Collection] tab and select [Create Gamelist]. Choose which games to add to your games list, then decide what to name them.
  • You can have up to 15 game lists and 100 games per game list. All games under the “Your Collection” tab of your games library can be added to a games list, including disc, digital and streaming titles.*** You can also add the same game to multiple lists games.

There are also additional features in today’s update, including YouTube search via voice, PS app updates, and more. We suggest you read the entire blog post for all the details!
