Sony can stop The Acclades system inside PS5 in the near future, claims a report by SiliconEra, based on the announcement made on Japanese PlayStationof the support site. The report did not give a clear date but said the function could be shut down in the fall of 2022.
What is Prize and why can Sony close it?
The reason Sony may be thinking of completely removing this feature could be that it is being used very little by PS5 players. The Accolades function is unique to PS5 and can be sent to players you like to team up in multiplayer. There are three prizes that can be sent between teammates: Helpful, Welcome, and Good Sports.
“You will no longer be able to submit prizes and it is likely that you will lose all the prizes you have accumulated. Sony didn’t specify why it thinks PS5 users don’t use the prizes, but not all PS5 games with multiplayer functionality support the feature or appear regularly. report said.
Sony recently rolled out a beta update for PS5 testers, something that only select testers are allowed to access. The most notable of these is a new video resolution option that will now allow beta testers to set the console display at 1440p. However, Sony has yet to officially confirm the date these features will be rolled out more widely.
The latest 1440p video resolution option is said to be “average” between true 1080p HD and real 2160p 4K UHD. This intermediate video setting can prove very useful for gamers whose TVs and monitors support 1440p resolution. The Android Authority report says that if gamers reduce the video resolution to 1440p in a PS5 game that supports 4K resolution, it can help improve anti-aliased graphics without having to drop to low 1080p settings. much more.
