Sony are set to release a 4K video service which will work alongside the PS4: the first of its kind.
Image comparing resolutions from wikipedia. 4K is quite a lot more pixels, then.
Sony Electronics President Phil Molyneux told The Verge that despite the console’s ability to output this resolution, PS4 games will not be equipped to display in it.
The key issue with the format, however, is that downloads could exceed 100 Gb.
While Sony are touting the ability to download items in the background or overnight, that size of file is going to put a huge strain on the majority of average UK-based internet packages.
If this is the future of movie and media display formats, is our internet structure and storage medium actually prepared for it?
