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.

Seems pretty pointless if you ask me.
While that's cool, right now there's like no one that could afford. Apparently LG has a 4K TV in Korea that would cost $22,000. That's more than some cars. I still haven't even messed with 3D (and probably won't).
By the time the PS4 is in the middle of its lifecycle 4K TVs will start becoming mainstream. It would surprise me if the next gen of consoles didn't support 4K. Also, its not like this is really a "feature," it just means that the new hardware should be able to handle the increase in processing power required. Correct me if Im wrong but the new TVs are still using HDMI so there isn't much to do to make the system compatible.
expected, but still awesome. I can't wait.
Would a TV that big make older media look blurry? It's bigger, but you're still seeing all of it, so up close yeah but far back, it's not?
With that kind of resolution in the future, I think I may start saving up for a 60-foot screen and a projector.
I don't think I'm ready for the PS4 yet
I still can't believe it's not butter!!
I care far more about 1080p becoming the gaming standard. No disc-based titles have been running in true 1080p yet.
It makes sense. Now the Wii U looks like trash *cancels preorder".
Just kidding. I think 1080 is great. 4K would be fantastic though.
