Or when will we see it running games in native 4K resolution?

I assume Nintendo will give it an update a while after the ps4 launches. The ps4 has a very high chance of being able to play games in native 4k res at 60 fps. The Gran Turismo tech demo confirms this. Microsoft will probably follow suite before Nintendo does.

Ask again after a decade. 4k isn't expected to be common enough in households until 8 to 10 years from now to justify a console running 4k tech. Hell, even Kaz Hirai, CEO of Sony, which is making the PS4, which is the console that was rumored to have 4k compatibility, said it isn't worth it to develop for 4k until much later.

To be honest, Kaz says a lot of things.

Really now?

Wow. Coupled with the most recent statement, that's some pretty obvious double talk.

Kaz never said what TC posted. However, he did say this month that it was far too soon to even start dealing with the ps4. Now I'm hearing all these supposed rumors about how it'll get shown off at Playstation Destination in February.

Oh I didn't realize TC said that. I pretty much read the title and the first sentence lol.

Around 2018 or so, most likely. That's when the Wii U 2/Nintendo Revolution/whatever they call it will come out. It will probably upscale to 4K.

By the time I have a 4k TV (I estimate 2017), it won't be terribly long until the next console wave. People are still using 720p TV's these days.

Whenever 70inch tvs become the norm because that's where most people say there is a noticeable difference

People are still using CRTs.

Unless 4K gets enough market penetration in the next few years to actually be taken seriously, I'm not sure it will.
