La PS5 adopte enfin cette fonctionnalité majeure de la Xbox Series X

The PS5 is finally adopting this major feature from the Xbox Series X

News hardware The PS5 is finally adopting this major feature from the Xbox Series X

As Xbox Series sales skyrocket, PlayStation is finally adding a feature that’s already been possible on Microsoft’s consoles since release.

The PS5 had a major flaw compared to the Xbox Series X

One of the most important new features of new generation consoles is the arrival of 4K 60 120 FPS compatibility. This is what the PS5 and Xbox Series X are capable of, where the Xbox Series S is limited to 1440p.

4K resolution is becoming more and more important for gaming as TVs get bigger and bigger. We therefore need more pixels to avoid seeing them in full play. For the 120 FPS, PC regulars must laugh out loud, but we must not forget that a console costs much less.

But back to the resolution. Those who game on TV have access to 4K and are happy about it, but when it comes to PC screens, 4K is still far from the norm. Many monitors are still limited to 1440p. This is often understanding because the screen being smaller, the interest of 4K is less.

Except that, while the Xbox Series X has always supported 1080p, 1440p and 4K resolution, the PS5 skipped 1440p. Suddenly, for those who used a PS5 on a 1440p screen, the resolution dropped to 1080p. Full HD is quite limited and above all a shame for a next-gen console.

1440p is coming to PS5

While the PS5 was released in late 2020, it only just received native 1440p resolution support. The whole point of going for a next-gen console revolves a lot around the improved image quality. But if it’s to play in 1080p, it’s really a shame.

Fortunately, it’s ancient history now, and fans of the Sony console can choose the optimal resolution for their monitor in the settings.

You are surely aware of the countless PS5 stock shortages, where the Xbox Series has certainly struggled to be available but to a much lesser extent. However, the console is selling less and less well in Europe. There is a 21% drop in sales compared to the previous year.

While on the Microsoft side, there is a 7% increase in sales for the Xbox Series X and the Xbox Series S. We suspect that this is not entirely due to the resolution problem, but to the shortage of components. which has been going on for quite a while and the price of AMD chips which is increasing, which is holding Sony back in their production.

In any case, while waiting for a return to normal, follow the JVTech news to be informed when the PS5 returns to stock at its normal price (500€ for the version with disc and 400€ for the digital version).
