Sony has today released a new PlayStation 5 system software update in beta, giving PS5 gamers a chance to see the new features that will be executed once the update rolls out all over the world. Beta access is limited to invited participants in select countries only but Sony says the new update will be coming out sometime later this year and as always we will keep you up to speed.
New features in the new PS5 system software beta include gameplay and personalization options including the introduction of support for 1440p HDMI video output, enabling players to choose an additional visual setting on compatible PC monitors and TVs. Also if the game you’re playing supports 1440p rendering you can experience native 1440p output on your display. Or, if you’re playing a game with a higher native resolution like 4K, then you may benefit from enhanced anti-aliasing through supersampling down to 1440p output.
If you are uncertain whether your device will support 1440p resolutions you can check if your HDMI device is consistent by selecting “Test 1440p Output” under the “Screen and Video” options within the PlayStation system settings menu.

– You can have up to 15 gamelists and 100 games per gamelist. All games under the “Your Collection” tab of your Game Library can be added to a gamelist, including disc, digital, and streaming games. You can also add the same game to numerous gamelists.
