The PS5 apparently won’t support a native 1440p resolution, according to IGN Italy, which says it received official confirmation from Sony Europe on Wednesday.
This is bad news for PlayStation fans with 1440p gaming monitors, as it means the PS5 will not play ball with the intended resolution for the set, likely upscaling from 1080p to compensate. We’ve contacted Sony for comment.
The PlayStation 5 can output a maximum of 8K resolution, and 4K at 120 FPS via HDMI 2.1-compliant TVs. It’ll be fine at 1080p resolution too, but the in-between resolution used by many PC gamers seemingly won’t be supported by the new console at launch.
Earlier in the week we learned that PS4 exclusive Days Gone will run at up to 60 FPS on PS5 with Dynamic 4K. The DualSense controller will also seemingly feature a removable faceplate that could be swapped out with custom designs.
The PS5 launches on November 12 & November 19 worldwide. Preorders for the PlayStation 5 are currently sold out, but if more go up they’ll be in our PS5 preorder guide right away.
