Sony: PlayStation 5 might get 1440p support after all

Sony PlayStation 5 might get 1440p support depending on demand
Sony PlayStation 5 might get 1440p support depending on demand
Although it's not available yet and Sony had previously stated that the PlayStation 5 will not come with support for it, now the tide has changed. The Japanese tech giant has just confirmed that, if there's enough demand, the PlayStation 5 will get support for native 1440p gaming via a future software update.

Microsoft fans who praise the Xbox Series X|S due to the 1440p gaming support might soon lose this reason that keeps them away from the Sony PlayStation 5. Although Sony's console does not offer 1440p support yet, nothing is stopping it from doing so, hardware-wise. Since we are talking about a mere software limitation, it sounds logical to see it removed one day. Fortunately, this has just been confirmed by a Sony official.

According to a statement made by Sony's Hideaki Nishino in a recent interview — in Japanese, unfortunately — that was mentioned by Nibel on Twitter earlier today, "there is no PS5 1440p resolution support due to TVs being the highest priority." He also added that if many users will request this feature, native 1440p video support might be added to the PlayStation 5 in the future. For now, we have no "when" but at least we have an official confirmation that there's a solid chance to see this happening.

The new Sony PlayStation is expected to launch tomorrow in the United States, Canada, Japan, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea, while the rest of the world will get it more than a week later, on the 19th. Will you go with the PlayStation 5, the new Xbox Series X|S, or both? Let us know about your choice in the comments.
