According to a recent rumor (via BGR), Sony’s next-generation console PlayStation 4 will introduce an 80-inch XBR LED television set that supports 4K resolution.
Blu-ray HD and 3D content was established in PS3, Sony will offer ultra HD 4K Resolution displays to push the consumers for upgrade. Sony is already selling 4K Blu-ray players for $200 and it’ll indeed add 4k resolution playback on PS4.
4K is a resolution standard for several different resolutions in digital cinematography and computer graphics. The name is derived from the horizontal resolution, which is approximately 4,000 pixels (this designation is different from those used in the digital television industry, which are represented by the vertical pixel count).
This is similar to ‘Ultra HD’, or ‘Quad Full High Definition’ (QFHD), which at 3840×2160, is exactly four times today’s full HD resolution of 1920×1080. YouTube is the only video hosting service that allows 4K videos to be streamed, as it allows a resolution of up to 4096 x 3072 (12.6 megapixels).
PS3 supports 1920×1080 resolution, but only a few games manage to run at 1920×1080, so 3840×2160 or higher at 60 frames-per-second would be a huge leap. Sony has yet to announce its next console.
