Remember the first time you saw a Blu-ray or an HD TV and you thought everything looked like soap opera? The visuals were, without a doubt, very impressive; you could see every wrinkle on the actors’ faces, every blemish on their body, how much make-up they managed to cake on, all sorts of stuff.
That was just 1080p. Can you imagine what the future is going to look like with resolution that is four times that high definition-ness?
It isn’t science fiction. 4k resolution is becoming increasingly popular in filming movies for the big screen. And Sony and other companies have been working on 4k resolution for their next generation of entertainment systems.
While most HD is currently at 1920 x 1080 pixels, 4k means 3840 x 2160 pixels (even though that’s only mathematically 2 x 1080p, it actually is 4 x 1080p in resolution terms).
In other words, it turns this:
Fortunately for gamers, this evolution of visual beauty will soon include the PS4 (why not just call it the PS4k?) BGR.com has learned from an unknown source that the PS4 will indeed support this amazing 4k resolution. Video game graphics are going to be insane.
Sony is working on the S790 player that will increase their Blu-ray resolution to 4k, and both Sony and Toshiba are working on 80-inch televisions capable of 4k resolution. The idea behind this is, as televisions are getting bigger, the resolution has to keep up. 1080p looks its best on screens up to 80 inches. Beyond 80 inches, a higher resolution, like 4k, is needed to maintain the quality.
In the near future (2013), 4k TV owners, especially PS4 owners, are going to be drooling at their television sets.
