New PlayStation 5 Beta Finally Adds Game Folders; 1440p Support & Minor Additions

Sony has announced the arrival of a new PlayStation 5 beta with the implementation of 1440p support, gamelists, and more.

1440p HDMI Video Output will be available for those with compatible monitors/televisions. Games that support 4K may also benefit from supersampling down to 1440p for improved anti-aliasing. The “Test 1440p Output” under the “Screen and Video” option within the system menu will allow users to see if they can benefit from this inclusion.

Gamelists are finally here, allowing users to organize their software better. The New “Game Collection” tab in the library will add these new folders with up to 15 gamelists and 100 games per list. Titles can also be put into multiple folders.

More minor parts of this update comprise the ability to request screen sharing from friends, a 3D audio and Stereo audio comparison test menu, and easier tracking for in-game activities.

You can view the full list of changes and updates with this new PlayStation 5 beta via PlayStation Blog, which also details the available regions.
