8K support is a feature that has been advertised on PlayStation 5 console boxes since the console launched back in 2020. But today, some Reddit users started noticing that at some point, Sony removed the 8K support notice on the box. This label claimed that the console can output in resolutions up to 8K.

It was John Linneman of Digital Foundry who discovered that the new PS5 boxes only include the 4k/120 fps and HDR labels and no longer claim that the console is capable of outputting in 8K. Interestingly, there has only been one game truly compatible with 8K in all this time, and it is The Touryst.

Sony promised that it planned to release a software update that would allow PlayStation 5 consoles to reach resolutions of up to 8K. This never came, and with recent events, it appears that 8K gaming is no longer an option for console gamers.

Sony has surely done this so that it can promote the PS5 Pro as compatible with 8K when it is released. Let us remember that market analysts expect this Pro model to be launched at the end of this year.

Be that as it may, Sony fans should no longer expect to be able to play 8K games on their PlayStation 5, something that was surely not as relevant as a purchasing factor.
