After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

4K Video Service Coming To PlayStation 4

Posted on Friday, March 1 @ 09:16:09 PST by Jonathan_Leack

If you've ever wondered how good 4K videos look, all you need to do is buy a PlayStation 4 later this year. Oh, and an overpriced television.

President of Sony Electronics, Phil Molyneux, stated during an interview with The Verge that the PlayStation 4 will incorporate a 4K video service. The name of the service is unknown, but Sony says that the movies will be more than 100GB in size making it a challenge. However, it plans to make the file sizes as small of an issue as possible.

Currently, the 4K market is in its infancy with only a handful of products that support the massive resolution. Some say it will be the new standard similar to what HD was able to accomplish only a few years ago, but its ridiculous data requirement makes it appear that it'll take some time before it catches on—or at least streaming it, anyway. It also doesn't help that the PlayStation 4 isn't going to run games in 4K and will instead opt to stick to the tried-and-tested 1080p standard.

Nonetheless, Sony wants to be ahead of the curve and this is one way of doing it. Let's just hope that the prices of 4K televisions come down substantially between now and when the PlayStation 4 releases.
