PlayStation 4: Supports 4K Movie service from Sony

With the announcement of Sony’s next-generation gaming console, the PS4 last week. We all expected the the Japanese tech giant to declare PS4’s 4K movie support alongside the console’s announcement itself. However, Sony’s COO Phil Molyneux, in an interview with The Verge, responded to a question enquiring about PS4’s support for 4K video saying, “I promise you will not be disappointed.”

4K video, is the latest-developed video resolution format that boasts a crispy 3840 × 2160 pixels, hence exceeding the HD 1080p video quality and resulting in the name Ultra-HD. Sony has confirmed that the PlayStation 4 would not be able to support 4K games, but only 4K videos and photographs. In the interview, the COO also mentioned that a 4K video may have an enormous 100 GB+ size! Moreover, Sony claims that they are the “world’s first” to offer a 4K movie download service.

However, we greatly doubt whether the 4K phenomenon will even become common, due the the gigantic video size and not to mention the pocket-emptying costs of 4K-supported televisions.
