PS4 - I am not Upgrading to 4K TV

4k won't be utilized for games, so I don't see the point.

Friends,

4K is being thrown all around the CES show. Comsumers Electronics show, in LV.
Even the tablets are getting in to the act. Below is a cut and paste.

Ultra HD is typically associated with next-gen television sets, but that hasn't stopped Panasonic from debuting a mega 20-inch tablet with an Alpha LCD panel set at a cool 4k.

The display boasts a native resolution of 3840 x 2560, along with a pixel density of 230 ppi. The screen is capable of producing approximately 16.7 7 million colors and features an aspect ratio of 15:10.

Sony has already been talking about the ps4 displaying in 4K. Now we know why.

Thank you for sharing.

I'd upgrade if games were running in Native 4k but considering the fact 99% of games aren't even native 1080P I don't see that happening any time soon.

More than happy to upgrade if there is content available to take advantage. Show me some games in 4K and I'll consider buying.

IIRC, the next big step is 1440p. The problem is that even 1440p content isn't being released yet. While everyone is setting up equipment that can broadcast higher resolutions, there isn't anything that can produce that resolution at a cost effective price. I've seen cameras and some handheld camcorders capture film at 1440p, but since it's not refined, it looks worse than 1080p. You probably won't have to upgrade to a 4k TV. If developers can barely push out 720p on modern consoles, what makes you think they'd have the time to achieve 4k or even 1440p games?

I just bought a 40 inch HDTV to view videos and play games on. I won't be upgrading for another few years. I was perfectly fine entering this generation with an SDTV and I'll be fine entering the new gen with an HDTV that broadcasts at 1920x1080.

It isn't going to happen. Just more false rumors

I agree and I think that's all you're going to need for at least 3-4 more years (probably more)

TV resolution in the consumer market is going to be based on the size of the tv.

4K is only beneficial to very large tvs and projectors, anything above 80+ inches. You won't see many tvs in the 37- 60 inch range with 4K because the perceived resolution wouldn't be substantial enough to warrant it.

It's why tv's on the market now that are smaller than 32 inches are 720p standard because there is no benefit to putting 1080p displays on a smaller tv dimension.

4k will take horsepower to product.

So, either 1080p with amazing next gen graphics.

or

4k with last gen graphics but omg its sharp.

I will take the 1080p.

Just like 3d, there will be a big hit.

"Every generation"? This gen is the first gen where buying a new type of TV was encouraged.


Exactly what I was going to say.
