If you saw a new TV before you started making the PS5, Sony just made your search a lot easier with the new Ready for PS5 TV series.
Among the first TVs to be included in the program are the Sony X900H / XH90 4K HDR and Z8H / ZH8 8K HDR Full Array LED TVs unveiled at CES earlier this year, which Sony says will feature ultra-low latency gaming modes. providing 4K. images at 120 frames per second.
Sony says TVs that are part of the Ready for PS5 program can be woken up using a PS5 DualSense game tablet, and the TV’s remote control can be used to control the console.
The good news is that the X900H (called the XH9005 if you’re in the UK) is actually a bit affordable at $ 999 / £ 1,299, making it a possible console companion. Given that the Sony Z8H (UK ZH8) starts at $ 5,999 / £ 5,999 … that the TV is probably unavailable to most people who choose the $ 500 console.
Wait … aren’t all TVs ready for PS5?
The short answer is that yes, all TVs will be compatible with the PS5 – and most modern TVs will have game modes with little delay.
The longer answer here – and the difference Sony wants to emphasize – is that in 2020. The series TVs have HDMI 2.1 ports that support 4K / 120Hz and can communicate between the future console and Sony TVs.
This year, you’ll be able to find HDMI 2.1 on many screens, including Samsung, LG, Panasonic and others, so watch them if you’re not on a plane and spend $ 5,999 / $ 5,999 on that flagship Sony screen.
