Movies, a different story. Also, “3D is not a focus”.
4k displays is where the future is headed, however although PS4 will support 4k movies, games won’t see that kind of resolution, as it’s still a very expensive technology, and no one wants to buy PS4 for, say $600, right? Right…
Here’s PlayStation Executive Shuhei Yoshida on the matter:
The PS4 supports 4K output, but only for photos and videos — not games, PS4 games do not work on 4K.
On 3D, in a humbling reality check by Sony, Yoshida says the technology was no longer a focus, although PS4 will provide a better quality 3D experience than its predecessor:
It’s not a focus. But it does do it better. The basic capability is higher so more games will run at 1080p at 60 frames so it’s an easier and better experience when you watch on 3D TV.
Yoshida went on about 3D, as if singing the tech’s swang song:
3D was a big thing a couple of years ago — we made it a big thing because it was lead by the consumer electronics side of Sony and we liked what we could do on PS3 using 3D stereoscopic. But now the consumer electronics side of Sony, or all of the companies have shifted focus from 3D TV to something else, so if they’re not talking about it, why would we?
PlayStation 4 is slated for a release later this year, with Killzone: Shadow Fall, amongst others, releasing alongside the machine.
