PS5 System Update 6.0 has now dropped to all PS5 owners after being in beta for just over a month. The update adds 1440p support, as well as folders in the form of game lists. There’s also a bunch of other changes which you can find below.
The update is a larger one coming in at 1.086GB so definitely get that update started if it’s not already downloading in the background.
There’s also an interesting new PlayStation App feature where you can launch games from the app and have them open directly in your Remote Play app. This cuts out the need to launch remote play, then find the game that you’re after.
ALL OF THE PS5 SYSTEM UPDATE 6.0 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.
Compare 3D Audio and Stereo Audio
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.
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.
New PS App features
In addition to these PS5 console updates, we’re gradually rolling out some new features for PS App globally later this month, on iOS and Android:
Launch a PS Remote Play session through PS App
PS App users will be able to launch a PS Remote Play session directly from PS App on iOS and Android devices. To start, make sure PS App is linked to your PS5 console and your console is in Rest Mode. Then, select the “Play Using PS Remote Play” icon on a PS App game hub, and the PS Remote Play app will automatically launch the game. To enjoy this feature, make sure PS App and the PS Remote Play app are both installed on your mobile or tablet device.
Request Share Screen
Similar to the PS5 feature, PS App users will be able to request another party member playing on PS5 to start a Share Screen session, and then watch their friend’s gameplay from the app. This makes it even easier for you to stay connected with friends while you’re on the go.
