According to the marketing found on the PlayStation Blog and Bravia website, the new ZH8 and XH90/92 BRAVIA televisions will allow PlayStation 5 to run at 4K/120fps and display images up to 8K resolution via a future firmware update.
The Bravia televisions will also include an ultra-low latency Game Mode and allow users to turn on the television and console at the same time using the PS5’s DualSense controller.
The Bravia remote will also provide battery timing and menu controls for the console.
Recent television models from other manufacturers featuring HDMI 2.1 will also be able to run PS5 games at 8K/60fps and 4K/120fps.
So far the only PlayStation 5 title confirmed to support 120fps is Codemasters’ Dirt 5.
Xbox has included 120fps prominently in its marketing for Series X and said that it plans to add the ultra-high frame rate to some backwards compatible titles.
According to a new DigiTimes report, the PlayStation 5 life cycle could be shorter than previous console generations. According to the publication’s supply chain sources, the PS5 life cycle could be reduced to five years.
During that period, they estimate shipments of the console to reach at least 120 million units—approximately double those of Microsoft‘s rival next-gen system, Xbox Series X, which also launches later this year—and perhaps as high as 170 million.
