How much are Sony's PS5-Ready TVs?

As the arrival of Sony's PS5 draw ever closer, gamers are looking for the ultimate set-up ahead of their new console's arrival.

Not one to miss a trick, Sony launched their very own 'Ready for PlayStation 5' TV campaign which featured around the ZH8 and XH90/92 BRAVIA televisions.

However, these TVs weren't as ready for next-gen gameplay as you might think...

As reported by Forbes, the ZH8 and XH90/92 BRAVIA TVs were actually in need of a firmware update before they could deliver on the promised next-gen enhancements of 4K resolution streaming at up to 120Hz .
