Now that you know how to increase the text size on PS5 let’s see how you can enable the PlayStation 5 High Contrast Mode to improve your gaming experience. But first, let’s understand what High Contrast Mode means.
What Does High Contrast Do on PS5
Well, simply put, the High Contrast Mode will make dark colors darker and bright colors brighter. This option will eventually improve the clarity of the objects you see on the screen; however, keep in mind that this option works only with some features. Furthermore, you should not confuse the High Contrast Mode on PlayStation 5 with the contrast you can increase and decrease while playing a game.
Nor with a game’s gamma. Although these options work together, they are a bit different. This means that once you enable this mode on PlayStation 5, you can further increase the contrast using the option available in a game’s settings menu.
It is also important to remember that not all video games allow you to increase or decrease the contrast, but most of them do. Usually, if this option is available, it can be found in the in-game settings. Simply check the Video Settings tab after you start the game.
How Do I Adjust the Contrast on PlayStation 5
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 High Contrast.
- Toggle it ON/OFF by checking/unchecking the small box on the right side of your screen.
Play around with this option and pick the one you like the most. And that’s it! Now you know how to enable the high contrast mode on the new PlayStation 5.
