[CVG] PS4 supports 4K, but not for games - Page 15

post #141 of 145
Is it known yet if the PS4 will support 2560x1440 resolution? I can understand not 4k, but if the current gen consoles can support 1080p, wouldn't you guys think that 1440p is attainable? If not, will the PS4 be able to letterbox 1080p? I really don't want to get a new monitor for the PS4 frown.gif

I doubt it. The current gen CAN support 1080p, but that is far from the standard. I expect 1080p to be the actual standard for the next consoles. As for 1440p, since the vast majority of people use consoles with 1080p, it's not likely they'll even bother to try. As far as letterboxing, that will probably be done by your monitor tuner, as long as yours has one. If you have multi-input support, it should be fine.

Thank you! Yes I realize most games are upscaled, but just like 720p (or less) is upscaled to 1080p monitors, I thought they would do the same for this gen. And about my monitor, I don't know. I have a Yamakasi Catleap Q270 SE. Not sure which model. I don't think it has a built in scalar.

I really doubt the PS4 will support upscaling to 1440p since 99% od users will play their games on a TV (which are all 1080 max except for a few 4k sets). As long as you don't stand with your eyes stuck on the display it should be fine, PS3 720p games look quite sharp on my 27" 1080 monitor, a lot better than any PC game at that resolution. For some reason, PC games always look like total crap when not displayed at the native resolution but PS3/360 max don't have that issue.

I think though that your monitor doesn't support HDCP (it's one of those Korean ones right ? ) so you won't be able to watch Blu-Rays which are HDCP protected (almost all of them).

Yeah, I'm pretty sure none of the Catleaps have scalers... You'll just have to keep your eyes on the PS4 as it comes out, and find out about upscaling. It may or may not, I'm not sure. I'm only sure that it won't do native 1440p.
