In recent weeks there has been a lot of news about the PlayStation 5. In this blog we have put all highlights of the past week.
No 1440p resolution support
The Playstation 5 does not support 1440p resolution. Sony has announced this to IGN Italy. This is quite a disappointment for gamers who want to connect the Playstation to a PC monitor. When connecting the Playstation to a 1440p monitor, it scales back to 1080p. Do you want to connect the Playstation 5 to a PC monitor? Then view all 4K monitors here.
No PlayStations in European stores
There are no physical PlayStations in stores on November 19 in Europe. In the USA, Canada and Japan launch is expected to be same as always. Sony has indicated that they will only let the PlayStations sell online for the safety of store employees and consumers during the time of corona. It makes no sense to queue at your favorite retailer but ordering it online makes more sense in these times.
No M.2 SSD support upon release
The PlayStation 5 cannot be expanded with an M.2 SSD upon release. M. 2 is a form factor for SSDs (solid-state drives) that’s shaped like a stick of gum. These SSDs are generally faster but more expensive than traditional, 2.5-inch SSDs. Sony announced in March that it is possible to expand the Playstation 5 with an M.2 SSD. After release, the slot for the SSD is disabled by software until further notice. Sony is releasing another list of SSDs that meet the requirements of the PlayStation 5.
