Sony PS5 System Software Update Now Available to Download

1440p 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.


  • In your Game Library, you can now create gamelists, which makes 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 them.
  • 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, and digital titles. You can also add the same game to multiple gamelists.

The update will be downloaded automatically if users have that setting turned on. Once downloaded, users can then install the update, which will be completed after the PS5 restarts itself a couple of times.
