It looks like Sony's upcoming next-gen console won't support 1440p resolution after all. The latest reports state that Sony plan to support 1080p and 4K but not 1440p, a resolution which is a favourite among PC players.

A couple of weeks ago, we got unconfirmed rumours stating that PlayStation 5 could support 1440p resolution, which is something many PC gamers were eager to hear. As you may know, the 1440p resolution is extremely popular among PC gamers and some of them would love the opportunity to have a new console that would support their monitor's native resolution.

With PlayStation 4 this was not the case and 1440p gamers were usually stuck on 1080p resolution, which is not ideal at all. Many hoped that PlayStation 5 will address this issue but it seems Sony don't have any plans to support native 1440p resolution despite the earlier rumours suggesting otherwise.

According to IGN Italy , who claim to have obtained the information from Sony, PlayStation 5 will not support native 1440p resolution.

While this is certainly a major disappointment to many gamers, we can't say it's overly surprising. With most modern TVs now offering 4K resolution or higher, it's understandable why Sony won't bother with 1440p resolution.

Still, it would be really nice to have the option to connect your PlayStation 5 with 1440p monitor since many players prefer to play their games that way. 

It's worth mentioning that PlayStation 5's main competitor, Microsoft's Xbox Series X will natively support the 1440p resolution just like the previous-gen console Xbox One.
