PS4 Won't Support 4K Games, 3D Taking A Backseat

Posted on Thursday, February 21 @ 15:55:32 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Despite the fact that Sony had been pushing 3D with the PlayStation 3 quite a bit over the past several years, it apparently won't be a main focus for the company with the PS4.

"It's not a focus. But it does do it better," Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida explained. "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."

With regard to why it's not a major part of Sony's strategy going forward, Yoshida went on to add, "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?"

With regard to 4K support, "the PS4 supports 4K output, but only for photos and videos — not games," Mr. Yoshida also said. "PS4 games do not work on 4K." 

So there you have it. No 4K games and a reduced focus on 3D. Is this a good move by Sony, or are you disappointed by the news? Let us know in the comments below.
