Sony is set to release a new line of 4K Blu-ray for their console PS5. They will benefit the people who are using PS5. They have opted for some films that they think will suit the release of PS5 such as Spider-Man: Far From Home and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. This new line of PS5 is going to release in December 2020. So know all the details about 4K Blu-ray movies in PS5 here.
The PS5 has the features of playing 4K UHD Blu-rays. This means that the chosen films from PS5 4K movie are viewable in 2160p on PS5. The price of the selected Blu-rays will be $30.99 and it will release with 4K UHD disc, a digital copy of the film, and Blu-ray disc. These are all available for the preorder now. But the PS5 digital edition owners will not get the feature to play 4K Blu-rays as they do not have the disc drive. Moreover, the digital copies will get made available in 4K and streaming services.
The details about Sony’s Blue-ray movies
The fans of Blue-ray were happy when Sony included the HD Blu-ray player in the PS3. This is one of the things that made the console successful. For some people, Blu-rays are the best option to see movies in great quality. They prefer it to streaming movies online. The filmmaker Christopher Nolan also shared that it is the best format of watching movies on Netflix.
However, in the middle Microsoft’s Ultra HD Blu-ray player offered in Xbox One S put the performance of the Sony’s console down. Then in 2016, Sony released PS4 Pro but without any benefits of Blue-ray. Many people got shocked because they expected more.
The owners required good video quality so if the blue-ray support is not available it made the experience worse. So that is why the current PS5 is going to have this facility.
The under performance of the discs
The streaming platform like the Google Stadia gives the owners access to AAA games available in browsers, mobiles and tablets. So the discs are no more famous as the games get played through digital download. The Microsoft has already planned for the future with its All Digital Xbox One S that completely works without the disc.
Sony too is up ahead in its products. The PlayStation Now with the last year’s price cut has bought the video game streaming service. It also has normalised the gaming library without the requirement of discs. This also modified the lives of gamers who have transitioned to modern gaming experiences.
The support of Blue-ray movies in PS5 is not new. But many people think that this will help people to get high-quality gaming experience. The viewers can also keep high-quality discs for a little longer if they are using it as this is also included in Sony’s releases.
The PS5 owners will be able to play 4K Blue-ray movies. This will help people to get a good experience out of their console. Also, many are waiting for the new additions in it.
