“According to the latest information, confirmed directly by Sony to our editorial team during the day today, PS5 will not support the native resolution at 1440p, a resolution that is certainly ‘irrelevant’ for most players, but very ‘dear’ to PC gamers,” the site reported.
This is a disappointing omission for a $500/$400 gaming console that boasts some of the latest display technologies, such as HDMI 2.1 and high-refresh rate (120 Hz) support.
The implication is that PlayStation 5 users with 1440p monitors will have to cope with a blurrier image. While there are some impressive display scalers out there, the image will almost assuredly be worse than native output.
The PlayStation 5 ($499.99) and PlayStation 5 Digital Edition ($399.99) will be released on November 12.
