It's too early.
-Lack of 4k TVs.
-Lack of storage medium capable of holding 4k content.
-Increasing the resolution will take away power that could be spent on superior graphics.

Call me back when there are a large number of games that can be played in native 4k resolution that push graphical boundaries at 60 fps without drops.

So basically, hit me up if you're still posting on gamefaqs about 10 years from now.

Who mentioned the WiiU or Rayman? And PC is always ahead of things. Up scaling doesn't count as native though.

This isn't something to worry about today. The technology is there currently for 4K. However, simple infrastructure will not make this viable for a long time. The fact most HD television channels you may receive are not coming in at 1080 due to the fact most cameras used to film are not 1080. Throw in a stat that I just read about Best Buy's TV sales this holiday season. They were happy with sales and the average cost was US $348. I didn't realize people paid so little for TVs, which means they got bottom of the barrel tech. Most people expect their TVs to last 10-20 years, therefore, 4K is not going to be a standard anytime soon.
