PlayStation 4 supports 4k video, four times that of 1080p

PlayStation 4 will support a resolution of 4K (four times that of 1080p) for pre-recorded video and images, but not for gameplay, according to Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida.

Should you be a stupidly rich person with a 4K TV, you will be able to watch 4K movies and such on your PS4 -- which you probably bought ten of because you are so stupid rich. The idea of playing games in 3840x2160 is just silly to even think about, but it's nice to know that PS4 is future proof when it comes to watching media at such a high resolution.

In short, get ready to buy all your favorite movies again, aside purchasing your favorite PS3 games. You can thank your PS4 for that.

Video: PlayStation 4 user interface in action

For those who missed today's Sony conference live stream, here's a clip from the opening moments -- the unveiling of PlayStation 4's user interface. While it might not look as streamlined as the traditional cross-media bar, it's apparently much faster, and incredibly responsive, and if this is any indication of what to expect down the line, I can't wait to see more.more
