The PS5 feature we’ve been waiting on since launch is finally here

Sony is finally adding 1440p support on PS5. But you’ll only be able to try it out if you’re signed up for the PS5 beta program. Many PS5 owners have been eagerly awaiting 1440p support since the console’s launch. And while it’s currently only available as part of the PS5 beta program, Sony has confirmed it intends to roll out the feature globally “later this year.”

Player-made gamelists and a menu to contrast stereo and 3D audio are two further new features that have been added to the beta. Various new social elements have also been included. These include notifications about games you can join and requests for screen sharing. Overall, the PS5 beta upgrade is quite large.

How to enable 1440p output on PS5

If you’re enrolled in the PS5 beta program, you can head into your console’s settings to set the resolution to 1440p.

In the Settings menu, head to ‘Screen and Video’ followed by the ‘Video Output’ submenu. Under ‘Resolution and frequency,’ select ‘Resolution’ and then 1440p from the dropdown menu.

If you’re unsure as to whether your display supports 1440p, you can select ‘Test 1440p output’ in the same menu. If the test displays correctly, then you’re good to go.

Why 1440p matters on PS5

Between HD and 4K, 1440p resolution is more than simply a midpoint. The top PS5 games, including Final Fantasy 14, feature a native 1440p resolution. Therefore, these games will look much crisper when played on a 1440p display. Particularly in regard to smaller 1440p monitors. These are the best displays for PS5 if you want to go from a TV to a monitor.

The ability for games with native 4K resolutions to downscale to 1440p is equally pleasing. In this situation, faster framerates and anti-aliasing, which produces an overall smoother image and aids in removing jagged or sharp edges on 3D objects, may be of assistance.

Sadly, it appears that Sony blew a big chance with its 1440p. Another eagerly anticipated feature, PS5 VRR, which was just implemented, will not be compatible with the resolution setting. This is especially puzzling given that VRR is compatible with the console’s 1080p and 4K resolution settings. When PS5 owners all throughout the world start receiving 1440p resolution, maybe this issue can be resolved.

In the end, even though 1440p support is now only available in a restricted way on the PS5, we’re nonetheless happy to see it. From Xbox Series X|S consoles have had it since their release, the PS5’s lack of it has always been perplexing. Fortunately, Sony no longer needs to play catch-up on this issue. At the very least, it will be when it moves on from beta testing.
