-IGN Italy has confirmed that the PlayStation 5 won’t natively support 1440p resolution. This shouldn’t be a problem for TV’s but those who use monitors might find this disappointing. Your TV will upscale to 4K (to varying levels of quality based on the TV) but those with a 1440p monitor are certainly upset and disappointed. Something to keep an eye on and consider if you’re getting or looking to get a PS5 if you use a monitor. If you use a TV, this shouldn’t really affect you too much.
