Sony’s PlayStation 4 to support 4K resolution

Sony’s (SNY) plan to introduce an 80-inch XBR LED television set with 4K resolution is said to be the start of a larger scheme to push 4K on consumers, much like 3D was a huge push in the industry a couple of years ago. Since 3D isn’t gaining much traction, Sony (and we’d assume the rest of the industry) is betting on 4K as a way to get consumers to upgrade their home entertainment devices.

Sony is already selling 4K Blu-ray players for $200, and the company’s next-generation PlayStation 4 will indeed support 4K resolution playback as well, a source tells us. Like the PlayStation 3 did with Blu-ray, Sony is betting that by including the ability to support 4K resolution media — games and movies — consumers will have an incentive to upgrade to new 4K television sets.

I figured we'd wait until we have concrete information. Only thing out right now are some faked spec sheets and rumors.

Sony SXRD?

Don't expect that to last more than 5,000ish hours (I don't mean the bulb either).





Ask me how I know

Depends on the size of the screen/viewing distance.

pretty much this. Playstation 3 game developers already have complained about developing games on that platform, can't imagine this makes it any easier on them. I think I'll need to upgrade my TV soon too though.

What is the purpose of this? At 1080p and 240hz I already can see the pores on peoples faces. The "soap opera effect" is bad enough. This just seems excessive.

It's to guarantee that your pet bird flies into the screen while you are watching nature shows.

I'm watching a Bluray rip of The Avengers right now, and I gotta say, it looks pretty ****ing good. I'm all for pushing technology, but 4k seems a little excessive right now unless you're on a 110" projector.



I don't really need to see twice the resolution of that. It looks great as is.
