Player Demand Will Determine If PlayStation 5 Supports 1440p

With players gearing up for the Sony PlayStation 5 in the coming days, there is still a section of fans that might feel left out. There will be no 1440p resolution support for the PS5 at launch, but fear not. If there is enough demand for it, Sony might just make it happen.

The reveal comes via Vice President of platform planning and management at PlayStation, Hideaki Nishino.

In an interview with AV Watch (translated by Nibel), he explained that Sony was not considering supporting 1440p for the PlayStation 5 purely because TVs were their main focus. 1440p, on the other hand, is geared towards computer monitors.

However, he further added that there was nothing stopping Sony from adding the support to PlayStation 5 via a software update in the future, especially if the players are asking for it. This is great news for those of us who crave more options to improve framerates without sacrificing resolution.

That said, it remains the decisions of the developers to take advantage of the resolution the best they can for the PS5.
