We’ve previously heard rumors that the PlayStation 4 might support 4K Ultra HD TVs, and Sony didn’t actually deny those rumors. Apparently, that’s their official position, as Sony’s Andrew House said that the company “hasn’t ruled out the possibility of 4K television” on the PlayStation 4, and added that it all depends on broadcasters and whether they will start streaming 4K soon.
Considering that most broadcast TV isn’t even in 1080p, 4K television is still many years away. 4K offers 4x the resolution of 1080p, and while 4K TVs have been available for a while and are dropping in price, there’s no real content out there to take advantage of the new technology. 4K movies will reportedly require 100 GB of storage, which is pushing the limits of the Blu-ray format.
When it comes to games, most developers are still struggling to get their games running in 1080p on next generation consoles. For example, Battlefield 4 on the PlayStation 4 will run only at 900p. PlayStation 4 creator Marck Cerny has previously ruled out 4K gaming on the PlayStation 4.
