PlayStation 5 was well received and by the end of last year it had sold over 13 million units. The console started out without any significant features that have come through firmware updates bit by bit.
If you don’t remember, its debut didn’t give users a chance to expand their PlayStation 5’s internal storage, which changed a few months ago. However, Sony hasn’t delivered on all its promises yet.
This is because the system does not yet have official support for 8K or Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) or Variable Refresh Rate. Things may change soon as they are sure that the console will receive an update that enables one of these features.
PlayStation 5 will be updated soon to receive VRR and more news
It’s CES 2022, so big technology companies are unveiling exciting new product lines to come this year. Of course, Sony is preparing some news, including more TVs.
Few teams will be ready to take full advantage of the PlayStation 5, so some insiders believe the console will be updated soon to enable its other promised features.
YouTube channel HDTVTest (via Wcctech) and other sources revealed that some of Sony’s monitors launching this spring, including the A90K, will support variable refresh rates.
Because of this, many people believe that the arrival of a firmware update to enable such support on PlayStation 5 is more than imminent. While the idea isn’t far off, the reality is Sony hasn’t confirmed anything yet. Other sources indicate that the update is in beta with 1440p support, dynamic backgrounds, themes and social features.
Variable refresh rate is now available on the next generation of consoles, thanks to the Xbox Series X. S, the system in which it was included since launch. This technology avoids problems such as tearing or discomfort with vertical synchronization if the television is suitable.
“PS5 hardware supports Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) via HDMI 2.1. Following a future system software update, PS5 owners will be able to use the VRR feature on compatible TVs when playing titles that support VRR,” Sony commented more months ago.
