PlayStation has just announced a whopper PS5 system update that includes much requested features such as 1440p support for monitors as well as folder support in the form of something that PlayStation is calling game lists. There’s also a number of social features that have been added.
The PS5 system update is going into beta today, and will likely release in the next few months for all users.
ALL OF THE NEW PS5 SYSTEM UPDATE FEATURES:
1440 HDMI VIDEO OUTPUT
The PS5 beta introduces support for 1440p HDMI video output, enabling players to choose an additional visual setting on compatible PC monitors and TVs.**
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 improved anti-aliasing through supersampling down to 1440p output.
You can check if your HDMI device is compatible by selecting “Test 1440p Output” under “Screen and Video” options within system settings.
GAME LISTS (FOLDERS)
In your Game Library you can now create gamelists, which make organizing your games even easier.
To start, go to the [Your Collection] tab and select [Create Gamelist]. Choose games to add to your gamelist, then decide what to name it.
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 titles.*** You can also add the same game to multiple gamelists.
You can now listen to and compare the difference between 3D and stereo audio on the same screen, and then choose your preferred setting.
Easier Access to In-progress Activities
When resuming a game, in-progress activities are often shown prominently at the top of the game hub to make it as easy and as fast as possible to get back to where you left off.
Request Share Screen
You can now request party members to start Share Screen to watch their gameplay. Go to the voice chat card, select the party member you want to send the request to, and then select [Request Share Screen].
Joinable Game Notification
When you join a party and a party member is playing a game you can join, you’ll now receive a notification. You can join the game directly from the notification.
View New Friends’ Profiles
When you accept a friend request in the [Received] list, you can now view your new friend’s profile in [Accepted Requests]
Send Stickers and Voice Messages in Game Base
In the Game Base card, you can now send stickers and voice messages to your groups.
