Sony PS4 to support 4K gaming?

Posted on Thursday, March 29 2012 @ 21:17:41 CEST by

Some new rumors about Sony's next-gen PlayStation have arrived. According to a report by Kotaku, the new console is codenamed "Orbis" and is anticipated to arrive in 2013. Orbis will reportedly support games with a 4096 x 2160 pixel (4K) resolution, but the bad news is that it won't support PlayStation 3 games and that second-hand games will be restricted because each game disc will be tied to a particular PSN account.
Based on what is currently known about the PlayStation 4 is that it is based on a microprocessor and a graphics processing unit (GPU) designed by Advanced Micro Devices. Apparently, those chips will be powerful enough to support video games in 4096*2160 (4K) resolution and video games in stereo-3D mode in 1920*1080 (1080p) resolution, according to a report from Kotaku web-site.

Since there are not a lot of 4K screens at the moment, the next-generation PlayStation “Orbis” appears to be intended for games that will shine starting from several years down the road. Apparently, the PlayStation 4 may be an even more ambitious endeavor than the PlayStation 3 in case of capabilities. But at the same time it is expected that its development will not be as expensive as that of the PS3.
