PlayStation 5 and the release of the first game with 8K capability


Finally, the first game with support for 8K resolution and 60 frames per second was released for the PlayStation 5 platform. Of course, the PlayStation 5 does not yet support 8K output.

Title The Touryst First released on the Nintendo Switch platform in 2019, and then made available for PC and Xbox in 2020, it will finally be available for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 in September this year. In an expert interview and review with the developers of this title by Digital Foundry Media, it was revealed that this title will be processed natively with 8K resolution on PlayStation 5.

According to the title development studio Shin’en, this has not been achieved through various technologies such as super-sampling, checkerboarding or AI upscaling, and the 8K game resolution is completely native.

However, the main problem right now is that despite the appearance of 8K resolution support on the PlayStation 5 package since its release, the console still does not support 8K output. That way, while the game is processed in the original 8K resolution, the output image quality will eventually drop to 4K.

Shinnan goes on to say that the Xbox version of the X-Series game will also be processed at a resolution higher than 4K. In fact, the title is processed on the Xbox X Series at 6K at 60 frames per second and then converted to 4K output. However, the PlayStation 5 version of the game still has more depth and detail.

In an interview with Digital Foundry, the developers stressed that when Sony finally activates 8K output support for the PlayStation 5 with the release of a new update in the future, all they have to do is release a small optimizer. This will enable the game’s 8K resolution capability.

As you know, Sony has been promoting and investing in some different TVs with support for 8K resolution at 60 frames per second since July 2020. Also, it is clearly written on the PlayStation 5 packaging that this console also supports 8K resolution.

However, it has been almost 11 months since the official release of the PlayStation 5 and this console still can not produce a signal greater than 4K in its output. Sony is expected to add support for 8K image quality to the PlayStation 5 with the release of an update. However, we have to wait and see what will happen in the future.
