[Eurogamer] Sony Confirms Playstation 4K - Page 11

post #101 of 158
"4K" "next gen" still it's good for those who own a 4K TV. At least they will be able to see a decent upscaled image. Most PS4 owners are already angry about this. Same for some devs. I believe that console companies are experimenting with the market atm. If this succeeds then consoles will become like smartphones. After 2 years they will become obsolete and games will have to support multiple console versions and cut support for the older ones. They could entirely skip this and prepare a true 4K render console after 3-4 years with descent power and features. Most console owners did not ask for this. Many of them are really angry already including a part of the gaming media press. Remember console buyers are not like PC enthusiasts. They like what they already have and like to stick with it for some years.
Same happened with the DLCs. Companies tested it saw that gamers fell for it and now it's all over the place. I feel that's what they will try to do with console hardware. It's up to console consumers to decide if this is what they want from consoles or not. If sales will not be high enough Sony and MS will not repeat it. If it succeeds prepare to see a new console versions every 2 years or so.

Consoles did push the envelope in the past. Just look at PS3 and it's multimillon dollar CPU that was built from scratch... It's a shame they don't do it anymore.

I think it would be wise for Sony to make 4K Resolution the primary difference between games on the two hardware versions.

I wouldn't even mind if they mandated that all art assets and framerates be the same, people who complain about the existence of Neo generally aren't 4K adopters, if they make 4K resolution the primary focus of the new hardware then dissenters will have a lot harder time saying that they're not getting the same games.

And it would push developers to give me actual native 4K resolution, which is what I want most out of new consoles.

keep dreaming. the most you could even hope for is 4K upscaling.
post #107 of 158

When this was rumored earlier in the year I argued that it makes sense and was told I was crazy. Sony has a diverse product line of 4K gear, consumer and professional Camera's, Camcorders, TV's all capable of 4K. With the except of the Gaming Console. They've been a pioneer in 8K movie Camera's for years.

 

It makes absolute sense for them to provide a console machine "capable" of playing 4K Games / Content / Bluerays. (In whatever fashion they decide is balanced for their delivery.) BTW I pretty much hate Sony but have no dog in this race and can stay objective about tech...

It's just my luck that the first console I ever purchased is part of the worst generation of consoles ever. Major upgrades/replacements for all 3 consoles within 3 years of launch is just ridiculous.

Why is it worse? Sony is not discontinuing the PS4. Speaking of worse, have you ever had the misfortune of buying a Sega Saturn? Probably one of the biggest flops in console history.

If you don't have a 4k TV, the new $799 Xbox One 4k, or a new PS4 4k wont do you any good.

People (adult consumers) are no longer going to put up with pisspoor graphics and content. They are all upgrading their households. Kids, children and young adults will have to make do with basement 1080p, or dorm room 1080p gaming.

These companies are going to sell their UPSCALE 4k devices alongside the budget 1080p consoles. And it is about time the game industry started to serve adults. Kids grow up..
