After numerous requests from the community and users, Sony is now testing support for the PlayStation 5’s 1440p resolution. A new PS5 system software beta with 1440p support, curated gamelists for their collection, and new social capabilities will be made available to testers today.
PlayStation states in its blog that owners of the PS5 will be able to select this resolution on compatible TVs and monitors thanks to the new 1440p video output option. Native 1440p output will be available if the game supports it, but if not, 4K games will benefit from improved anti-aliasing by supersampling to the 1440p output. Additionally, PS5 users with the beta software will be able to determine in the screen and video section of the PS5 dashboard whether their HDMI-connected monitor supports 1440p or not. Variable Refresh Rate will only be available at 1080p and 4K on the PS5, according to a statement from Sony.
Gamelists, which are intended to make it simpler to arrange your games, are also included in the most recent PS5 firmware update. You can make gamelists from the main game library, and each list can contain up to 100 games. The total number of gamelists is limited to 15, and disc, digital, and streaming games can all be added. In essence, these are folders to which you may add various games.

Additionally, Sony is introducing new social features, such as the ability to invite friends to start sharing their screens and alerts that appear when you join a party or when you join a friend’s current game. Additionally, you’ll be able to test the differences between 3D audio and standard stereo before deciding on your favourite setting and send stickers and voice notes during parties.
