If you have purchased the new PlayStation 5, you may want to learn how to decrease Motion Blur because this is an important feature that can improve your gaming experience.
What Does Motion Blur Do On PS5
The Motion Blur refers to screen movement and motion effects, and in some cases reducing it will help those who suffer from dizziness and eye strain.
If this happens to you, below you’ll find a step-by-step guide that will help you decrease the Motion Blur on PlayStation 5; however, keep in mind that this affects only the console’s UI.
In other words, even if you decrease it in the system’s settings, it will not affect the in-game Motion Blur.
This means that if you wish to further decrease it, you have two additional options besides the one explained below.
First, you can check your TV’s settings as new models come with an option to decrease or increase Motion Blur.
And second, you can check if the video game you are playing comes with this option.
You should be able to find this feature by accessing the game’s menu, then checking the video settings.
Two very good examples of video games that include this option would be RAGE 2 and Marvel’s Avengers.
The latter had some serious issues at launch, and a lot of players complained about it.
Can You Turn Off Motion Blur On PS5
Yes. The first thing you’ll need to do is to start your console.
- From the dashboard (your console’s main menu) navigate to Settings.
- Next, go to Accessibility. You may remember this menu from your old PlayStation 4.
- Now, go to Display, which is a new sub-menu that wasn’t available on PS4.
- Finally, go to Reduce Motion.
- Toggle it ON/OFF by checking/unchecking the small box on the right side of your screen.
And that’s it!
