There are plenty of rumours swirling around the tech world about what Sony is up to. They have hinted about big changes to the Bravia range soon and many are speculating that this means they’re going to be one of the first to make the resolution jump to 4K.
According to BGR’s sources, Sony plans to introduce an 80 inch 4K flat panel LCD display soon – perhaps at the IFA in Berlin next week. As soon as the first widely available consumer product is launched, there is likely to be a big push to get customers upgrading – much like there was for HD, Blu-ray and 3D in recent years.
Now, according to more BGR sources (on Yahoo! news), the PlayStation 4 will fully support the new resolution as a driving force to get the capability into people’s homes. This is a strategy they’ve attempted before with the PS2 and DVD, the PS3 and Blu-ray (and 3D, belatedly) so it makes sense that the PS4 will sport the latest technological feature that Sony wants to convince us we need.
4K resolution isn’t yet firmly defined, there are a few standards that all claim to be 4K ranging from 7 megapixels to over 12 megapixels. Generally, it’s just over four times the size of 1080p
I dread to think how blurry all the sub-HD games of this generation will look scaled up to 4K.
