Dolby Atmos on streaming Apps would be most welcome
If news on the interwebs are anything to go by, VRR update seems imminent.
If by "imminent" you mean by January 2022 then, yes, it's possible. However, I still think Sony will drag this out and we won't see it this year. They'll want to ensure VRR is supported on all their compatible TVs first, which could take time. They won't want to release the VRR update before then less people go out and, gasp, buy a better TV that has had VRR support for years such as LG and Samsung models!
I did use the word 'imminent' in a fairly loosy goosy sense a number of articles predict we could have it by/during December, or of course it could be delayed as you think. I'm actually wondering if VRR will make much difference to me & if I will even notice it when it does come out, I don't remember seeing a single instance of screen tearing on the PS5 with LG CX.
I know I have a few Ubisoft games, the only one I can think of off the top of my head is AC Valhalla & noticed no issues with that at all.If you play any Ubisoft games such as the recently released Far Cry 6 (and assuming their games support VRR) then, yes, it will absolutely make a difference between the tearing in that game is extremely prominent and distracting in my experience. I played the game for about 5 hours today and in that time I'd say the game tore for about 3.5 hours of that playtime as it occurs whenever there's any action happening onscreen (combat, explosions, driving, flying especially) and you even get the odd tear while exploring on foot. The game is clearly not optimised for 60 fps at all and uses adaptive v-sync that drops anytime the game dips below 60 fps, even if it's only to 59 or 58 fps!
The PS5 absolutely needs VRR if only to workaround Ubisoft's sheer laziness when it comes to optimising their current gen releases!
I got a pop up that it was downloading when I logged on earlier, I applied it straight away as was hoping it would sort the God of War standby issue, so far I can report it hasCoolness, updated first post.
Not sure if this one is mandatory, as it didnt seem to force on my PS5?
