PS5 may pack a punch when it comes to performance but you might want to hold off upgrading your TV just yet.
Sony is planning to push the console output to 8K in a future update, but there’s no need go ahead and buy a new telly right away.
That’s because the vast majority of PS5 games only support 4K at the moment.
And even with upsampling features on the latest 8K TVs, it’s still not worth the added expense.
8K products are still pretty pricey at the moment.
And there isn’t much else that can be properly enjoyed on them yet either.

So it’s probably best to wait it out until prices drop.
Action-adventure puzzle game Touryst was the first game to adopt 8K 60fps last year, not that any console can show it off for now.
Developers say that they’ll just need to roll out a small patch to switch it on once Sony and others enable 8K.
Sony’s own FAQ says: “PS5 is compatible with 8K displays at launch, and after a future system software update will be able to output resolutions up to 8K when content is available, with supported software.”
There’s no indication when the tech giant plans to flip the switch on 8K.
But it could be in time for the long-rumoured PS5 Pro.

And it would give Sony a better shot at competing with newer gaming PCs too.
