PS5 update rolls out globally with 1440p support, gamelists and new party features

Sony has rolled out the latest PlayStation 5 system update worldwide with a much-requested feature: 1440p video output. The feature, which first debuted in beta last July, will finally offer an option between less-sharp 1080p and more demanding 4K, which can reduce framerates. It is particularly beneficial for users with PC monitors that natively support 1440p QHD (2560 x 1440) resolution.

According to Sony, your monitor or TV must support 1440p/60Hz or 1440p/120Hz. You can select the setting from the “Display and Video” menu in Settings, and you can use the “Test 1440p Output” button to verify that your monitor is supported. However, using 1440p disables variable refresh rates (VRR), which sync game and monitor frame rates. That means you might see screen cracking and other issues that affect smoothness.

The update also includes Gamelists, which are essentially folders for storing games. You can have up to 15 playlists of 100 games each, containing a mix of digital and disc games. Other new features include the ability to request a share screen from another party member, view new friends’ profiles, and receive notifications to help you join a friend’s game from a party chat. A new feature previewed in the UK and US will allow you to perform YouTube searches using voice commands from anywhere on PS5, including during gameplay.
