Sony Announces ‘Ready for PlayStation®5’ for current BRAVIA™ TVs
(ASIA PACIFIC, 29 July 2020) – Sony today announced a lineup of its current BRAVIA TVs are officially ‘Ready for PlayStation®5’. The new ‘Ready for PlayStation 5’ tagline has been created in partnership with Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) to make it easier for consumers to select the optimum TV in preparation for the highly anticipated launch of PlayStation 5 (PS5™), the next-generation game console releasing this holiday season.
The first ‘Ready for PlayStation 5’ TVs from Sony includes the standout X90H 4K HDR Full Array LED and Z8H 8K HDR Full Array LED models[i]. The X90H displays gameplay images of up to 4K resolution at 120 fps[ii] with a very low input lag of 7.2ms[iii]. The Z8H is capable of displaying incredibly detailed 8K resolution images[iv] while also showcasing 4K resolution gameplay images at super-smooth 120 fps2 (supporting spec varies by PS5 game). Both TVs will provide extremely smooth gaming experiences with the PS5 console.
‘Ready for PlayStation 5’ TV models also boast BRAVIA Game Mode, which allows users to automatically play games on the PS5 console with low latency. Thanks to BRAVIA Game Mode, users can wake both TV and PS5 with the DualSense™ wireless controller at once, while also seamlessly control their PS5 using just the TV remote[v].
Sony’s TVs deliver beautiful pictures with vibrant color and stunning contrast, thanks to the best-in-class family of X1 processors. Additionally, powerful sound that comes directly from the TV screen creates a highly realistic and captivating viewing experience. With Sony’s cutting-edge proprietary technologies, users can become fully immersed in the true next-generation level of transformative play offered by PS5.
Sony, together with SIE, will continue to provide the ultimate gaming experience to PlayStation fans around the world with ‘One Sony’, a unique collaboration of creativity and technology across Sony entities.
