Sony is bringing its Game Menu & Eco Dashboard to older TV models

16 Aug 2023 | Rasmus Larsen |

A limited version of Sony's Game Menu is being added to 2022 models while the Eco Dashboard is being added to 2022 and 2021 models plus a single 2020 model.

Sony's Eco Dashboard unifies all energy-related settings and functions into a single dashboard that is easier to use and understand, according to Sony, as it also demonstrates the impact of your choices by adjusting the size of an animated tree.

The Eco Dashboard includes settings for power saving, light sensor, TV brightness, and more. In addition, the Eco Dashboard has integration with Sony's optional Bravia camera that is compatible with Sony TV models from 2022 and later.

A limited Game Menu

In addition, Sony 2022 models are getting a limited version of the Game Menu that Sony introduced with its 2023 models. The Game Menu in 2022 models includes 'Motion Blur Reduction' and a virtual crosshair on-screen that can be customized. It does not feature the 'Black equalizer' and 'Screen size' options that are exclusive to 2023 Sony models. To access the Game Menu you must have the TV in Game mode and then press the '123' button on the remote control.
