PS5 Specs Include 4k Blu-ray & 4k 120Hz/8k Support

PS5-Digital-4kBDMore details were revealed today about PlayStation 5 including specs on playback of 4k, 8k, and 4k Blu-ray Discs. PS4 didn’t have Ultra HD Blu-ray support, so we’re happy to see the PS5 will be offered with a 4k BD drive. Of course, there is a less expensive Digital Edition without a drive.

The PS5 with Blu-ray Disc drive plays up to 100GB UHD BDs, supports 4k at 120Hz and 8k TVs (60Hz), and variable refresh rate (VRR). We’re still waiting on HDR (Dolby Vision, HDR10, HLG, and audio specs). See the chart below for additional details.

Release date and pricing for the PS5 models upon launch will be revealed soon via press release, according to Sony.
