Unleashing the Full Potential of Your PS5 Gaming: 10 Power-Up Techniques

If you’re an avid PlayStation 5 gamer, it’s essential to optimize your settings to get the most out of your gaming experience. Here are some tips to get started:

  1. Save power on the controller battery: To extend the life of your DualSense wireless controller, set it to turn off automatically after a certain period of inactivity. To do this, go to System > Power Saving > Set Time Until Controllers Turn Off.
  2. Choose between performance and resolution: On the PS5, you can choose between Performance Mode and Resolution Mode. The former provides higher frame rates, while the latter delivers higher graphics quality. To select a mode, go to Saved Data and Game/App Settings > Game Presets > Performance Mode or Resolution Mode.
  3. Configure capture settings: You can choose the quality of screenshots and gameplay clips captured on your PS5. Go to Captures and Broadcasts > Captures and set the resolution, file type, and HDR setting for screenshots and video clips.
  4. Manage your notifications: Avoid distractions while gaming by customizing your notifications. Go to Settings > Notifications to adjust how long pop-up notifications appear and whether they come with sound or a preview of their contents. You can also turn off pop-up notifications altogether.
  5. Avoid spoilers: Protect yourself against spoilers by turning on Spoiler Warnings in Saved Data and Game/App Settings. This setting displays a warning whenever someone shares a screenshot of game activity you haven’t reached yet.
  6. Configure your controller: Customize your DualSense wireless controller settings to your liking. Go to Accessories > Controller (General) to adjust the vibration and trigger effect intensity, press and hold delay, controller speaker volume, and brightness of the controller indicators.
  7. Change who can contact you: Adjust your privacy settings in Users and Accounts > Privacy to limit the data sent to Sony, turn off tailored advertising, and more. You can also set who can find you in search results and send you friend requests.
  8. Enable voice commands: Use voice commands to launch games and control media playback. To enable this feature, go to Voice Command (Preview) and use the trigger phrase “Hey PlayStation.”
  9. Turn on Variable Refresh Rate: If your TV supports it, turn on Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) from Screen and Video > Video Output > VRR to automatically adjust the refresh rate of games for smoother performance.
  10. Set your preferred difficulty: Adjust the master setting for game difficulty in the PS5 menus to suit your gaming style.
