Sony's next-gen PlayStation 5 has 4K 120Hz output support

The next-gen PS5 will not just have insanely-fast load times, but it will support TVs with 4K 120Hz

Sony has revealed more details of its next-gen PlayStation 5 console during an interview between CNET and Jim Ryan, the president of Sony Interactive Entertainment. Ryan pushed the big message of "cross-generational play" which would see gamers on both the PS4 and PS5 playing games together.


But it was the bit about the PS5 supporting 4K 120Hz TVs that piqued my interest, which is an interesting fact. It doesn't mean we'll see games running at 4K at 120FPS on the PS5, but it definitely opens the possibilities of that. There are some more basic games that could roll out with 4K 120Hz support, the PS5 is more than powerful enough to play certain titles at the full 120FPS even at 4K.

So it's not only insanely-fast storage we can expect from the PlayStation 5 and its less-than-one second loading Spider-Man. But the backwards compatibility and cross-generation play mixed with much higher fidelity graphics and audio are truly going to create one of the most insane leaps in next-gen consoles, EVER.
