Xbox One and 4k vs PS4

#1FaytalChaosPosted 10/30/2013 6:00:09 PM
Sooo...as we have seen Xbox one has a chip in it dedicated to upscaling, while on the flip side PS4 relies on software upscaling. It's also been said that the PS4 would not be able to do 4k gaming. Now with the images coming up showing that the Xbox One chip is capable of upscaling to 4k with stunning results do you think this is a huge blow to PS4? Or is PS4 able to patch in a fix for this difference that puts it back ahead?

4k TVs wont have large market penetration for another 5 years. I mean, I think people are happy enough with the flatscreen 720p they got over the past 5 years, only people who split hairs over color accuracy/refresh/contrast (aka 1% of 1% of TV purchasers) are really going to be raring to upgrade to anything larger for the time being.

Dont look at this in terms of "gamefaqs member with expendable paycheck and no other hobbies", look at this in terms "average family with videogaming systems". 4k TVs just wont be a thing for a while.

The mass market isn't ready for glorious 4k gaming.

I can't speak for myself, but I have two friends who plan on buying a 4k tv next year. Depending on how the prices look next year, I might get one too.

Not at all a game changer for Microsoft. We are many years away from 4k being affordable for the mass market. Neither machine needed it and they should have focused the money somewhere else.

Why would someone pay $4000+ for a good 4k TV and then scrimp on hardware, they would have a PC for native 4K gaming and they would probably have both a PS4 and XB1 anyway.

Don't cheap out, do you know anyone who has an early entry level 40"+ plasma screen, no because they were unreliable and garbage compared to newer panels.

You should look at a more affordable and reliable 1440p panel at the moment, much much better value and quality for at least another couple of years and by then the money you saved will get you a better 4K screen.

Stunning results?!? This sounds like a PR topic, lmao. I'd rather have my television control the upscaling, I can control the sharpness instead of my console doing it for me and outputting jaggies and halo effects everywhere.

4K TVs come with their own upscaling technology

Don't need the one in the X1, PS4 can hit 4K res due to the TV

I don't think it would be worth it for Sony. People still have SD TV's, 4K won't be a big thing until the end of this generation.
