PlayStation 4 to Support 4K Resolutions, According to ReportCategory: Gaming
Posted: August 23, 2012 06:16PM
When rumored details on the PlayStation 4 emerged this past March, one of the capabilities was resolution support up to 4096x2160 for games. Nothing much was heard since then, until a new report emerged saying Sony's PlayStation 4 will indeed support 4K resolutions. The idea is for the 4K support to help drive sales of 4K TV sets, like the upcoming Sony XBR TVs. This is similar to Sony pushing Blu-ray and 3DTVs by way of the PS3, so it would make sense to do the same with the PS4. I do not know what kind of a sales push it will have until 4K TVs drop below the $10,000 threshold, so this goal will have to be a far-reaching one. Games and movies in 4K will look stunning, but the technology will need to be affordable for everyone first. This is all just unconfirmed reports until Sony reveals solid details on the PS4, but it would make sense for the upcoming system to be ready for the future.
