If you’ve come to the forefront of a new TV before launching the PS5, Sony has made searching easier with its new “Ready for PS5” TVs.
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, which were unveiled earlier this year at CES. visuals at 120 frames per second.
In addition to having a lower latency than the competition, Sony says that the TV programs that are part of the Ready for PS5 program can be woken up with the PS5 DualSense gamepad, and the TV remote control can be used to control the console.
The good news is that the X900H (called the XH9005 if you̵7;re in the UK) is actually affordable for $ 999 / £ 1,299, making it a viable companion for the console. Considering that the Sony Z8H (ZH8 in the UK) starts at $ 5.999 / £ 5.999 … that the TV is probably out of reach of most people who lift the console for $ 500.
Wait … aren’t all TVs ready for the PS5?
The short answer is yes, all TVs will be compatible with the PS5 – and state-of-the-art TVs will have low-latency game modes.
The longer answer – and the difference that Sony wants to emphasize – is that the TVs in their set up to 2020, which are equipped with HDMI 2.1 ports that support 4K / 120Hz, and can communicate with each other between the upcoming console and Sony TVs.
This year, you’ll be able to find HDMI 2.1 on multiple screens – including some from Samsung, LG, Panasonic and others – so watch out for the $ 5,999 / $ 5,999. on this Sony main screen.
