Sony is rolling out a new (beta) firmware update that gives the PS5 (PlayStation 5) console a well-needed feature that should make a lot of gamers happy. At least, those who collect a vast collection of digital games on their console (as wells as physical and streaming).
The new update gives users the ability to organize their titles into folders (or “Gamelists”). Making it a lot easier to browse through your collection looking for that next game to play. Users can organize however they want, such as creating a gamelist for all games owned within a specific franchise or genre.
You can have up to 100 games in a single gamelist and up to 15 gamelists total. Which should be more than enough for most gamers. All games, let it be digital, physical or even streaming, can be stored within these gamelists.
It’s a neat feature, allowing PS5 users to gain access to something Xbox users have had for some time now. The only catch is that the firmware is in beta, so it will only be released to those receiving beta releases.
In addition to this update, the beta also includes the ability to set their output to 1440p resolution. Allowing users to achieve a little better performance on screens that support 1440p. Allowing the system to focus more resources on effects and a smoother playback.
If you aren’t invited to the beta by Sony, you will have to wait until the updates rolls out to the public later in the year.
