PlayStation 4 owners will soon be able to use a PS4 supersampling mode. The beta invitations for PS4 system update 5.50 have finally gone out, and it revealed that the new mode will be a part of the future firmware update. It will allow players to “improve the image quality of some games on a TV with 2K resolution or lower.” That’s definitely a great feature, although it’s noted that the results will vary from game to game. In fact, it warns that in some games the “frame rate may change” and in other titles the image quality won’t improve.
Here’s the full text from the PS4 supersampling mode screen:
Supersampling Mode can improve the image quality of some games on a TV with 2K resolution or lower.
Results may differ depending on the games. In some games, image quality may not improve, or the frame rate may change.
