But not for games
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 3840×2160 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.
