New ps5 and Xbox series x will require a next-gen TV.
The new Playstation and Xbox consoles will require buyers to buy a new and next-gen TV to support certain features and functions of the consoles.
The specs and elements of the consoles are believed to contain power and features that a normal smart TV would find difficult to handle and control.
Microsoft unveiled its new console at last year’s Game Awards revealing that the console will be twice as fast as the Xbox One X, and followed up with a specs drop just last month. It utilises a custom processor that allows for high frame rates of up to 120Hz and 8K resolution – a world away from the Xbox One X’s 4K 60fps.
Essentially, you need a TV with HDMI 2.1 to fully enjoy 8K 120fps content and a smooth gaming experience.
