Digital Foundry specialist Alexander Battaglia noticed that the PlayStation 5 displays images in HDR by default. However, if you forcibly switch the mode to SDR, the picture will not be displayed correctly.
By according to BattagliaThe PlayStation 5 does not properly display content in SDR, which can result in a Black Crush effect: “It’s not as serious as [ограниченное RGB] and [полное RGB]shown in the quoted tweet, but if you grab SDR on a PlayStation 4 Pro and compare it to SDR on a PS5 in the same game, you’ll see the difference for the worse. “…
His colleague John Linneman agreed, later adding that the SDR black color issue is seen in all PlayStation 5 games compared to other platforms.
“Well, the problem is with the capture – if we shoot the same game on all platforms, then the capture on PS5 in SDR (limited range) always looks [хуже] and with missing details in the shadows. It doesn’t look so bad in itself, but if you compare it with everyone else, you will notice a problem. “, – wrote Linnemann.
Despite the fact that HDR content is the future, there are still a huge number of gamers in the world who play on screens without HDR support. Sony Interactive Entertainment itself has not yet commented on the incorrect display of colors, but users expect the defect to be fixed soon. It is noteworthy that SDR content is output correctly on HDR-compatible TVs.
