With the TVs that were released this year, something for buyers to be thinking about is what ones will be working best when the latest generation of video game systems arrive later this year. Both Microsoft’s Xbox One X and Sony’s PlayStation 5 are set to hit stores in time for the Christmas rush.
Sony, which makes both TVs and video game systems, have stated that it has designated some of its TVs “Ready for PlayStation 5,” in order “to make it easier for consumers to select the optimum TV in preparation for the highly anticipated launch of the PlayStation 5 (PS5.)”
The Sony TVs with the designation, at the start, are the X900H 4K HDR Full Array LED and Z8H 8K HDR Full Array LED models. “The X900H displays gameplay images of up to 4K resolution at 120 FPS3 with a very low input lag of 7.2MS4,” Sony said in the announcement. “The Z8H is capable of displaying incredibly detailed 8K resolution images, while also showcasing 4K resolution gameplay images at super-smooth 120 FPS3 (supporting spec varies by PS5 game). Both TVs will provide extremely smooth gaming experiences with the PS5 console.” The TVs also include Game Mode, which automatically places PS5 games in low latency.
“The X900H is a great TV for gaming. It has an incredibly low input lag, its fast response time makes fast-moving scenes look crisp, and its excellent contrast ratio makes it a good choice for dark room gaming,” the site said.
