SONY is now selling "Ready for PlayStation 5" TVs that are optimised for the next-gen console.
The top PS5 telly comes with a stunning 8K HDR display – with 4K resolution at 120 frames per second.
Sony's PlayStation 5 is expected to come out later this year, likely in October or November.
And it's packing seriously powerful hardware that can render stunning hi-res graphics.
But you'll need a good TV to get the most out of your new PS5, which is why Sony is now selling telly models under the "Ready for PlayStation 5" brand.
"The new ‘Ready for PlayStation 5’ tagline has been created… to make it easier for consumers to select the optimum TV," Sony explained.
"In preparation for the highly anticipated launch of PlayStation 5, the next-generation game console releasing this holiday season."
Sony says its PS5-ready televisions deliver vibrant colour and "stunning contrast".
Each model uses Sony's X1 family of processors, to optimise the on-screen image.
Specific models in the range include:
- Sony XH90 4K Full Array LED TVs
- Sony ZH8 8K HDR Full Array LED TVs
Both models come in a range of screen sizes, including the mammoth 85-inch ZH8, which costs £8,999 at John Lewis.
Alternatively, you can bag the XH90 from £1,299.
High frame rates and perks like HDR are nice, but Sony's headline feature is the 8K resolution.
Most TV models you see today are Full HD. That’s how we describe the number of pixels on the screen – the “resolution”.
The pixels are tiny dots that light up and create an image. The more pixels you have, the more detailed that image can be.
A Full HD TV has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. That’s 1920 pixels along the bottom, and 1080 up the side.
So you end up having roughly 2million pixels on the screen in total.
On a 4K TV, you have four times the number – or 8million pixels.
With an 8K TV, you have a screen resolution of 7680 x 4320 pixels – or 33million pixels in total.
Sony's PS5 will launch later this year in two distinct versions.
One is the PS5 proper, and then there's a Digital Edition – which has no disc tray.
It'll likely be a similar offering to the current Xbox One S Digital Edition – cheaper, but restricted to downloadable games.
Microsoft is expected to make a similar spin-off move with its next-gen Xbox Series X console.
There is still no official price or release date for the PS5.
