We all know the Next Generation of consoles is coming soon and rumors have been around but, BGR which is a credible news source is claiming they have the first inside information on the PS4. Supposedly, the next iteration of the PlayStation will support a native 4,000 resolution.
That’s an incredible 4x increase over the current 1080p resolution. Of course this fits exactly inline with Sony’s new 80-inch XBR LED TV set with a 4K resolution announced. This could be the start of a new revolution like how the PS3 had the blu-ray. Sony hasn’t confirmed this and only time will tell if its true.
If this is to be true though, how does Sony plan to make a push for 4k when current consoles haven’t conquered 1080? Let alone it’ll require you to upgrade your TV and most people wont want to drop $30,000 on a new TV to be able to use that feature. It would be a nice option to have and gaming with that resolution sounds like a dream. As long as it doesn’t make the PS4 extremely expensive, I’m all for it. With that said, i hope to see a new model of the vita incorporate some of Sony’s new resolution advancements to rival that of the retina display.
