The lights are on
According to an unidentified source from Sony, PlayStation 4 (or whatever the next Sony console will be called) will support 4K resolution, which is the next advancement in television visual quality.
The supposed idea behind PlayStation 4's compatibility with the next wave of high-definition televisions, is to entice consumers to upgrade their home entertainment systems. Sony tried the same thing by pushing 3D as hard as it could, but the technology never seemed to find its footing. Sony is already selling Blu-ray players that support 4K resolution, so it wouldn't be too surprising to learn that the next PlayStation would contain similar technology.
