New 4K-Capable PS4 And Xbox One Consoles Coming This Year, Predicts Netflix

Forums - Gaming Discussion - New 4K-Capable PS4 And Xbox One Consoles Coming This Year, Predicts Netflix

4K Tv's do look really nice. I've seen a couple with various demos on but like others have said, unless your in the market for a big screen TV, then there really isn't any difference. 1080p and 4K look pretty much the same on any screen under 46". Its only really when you go above and beyond that, that the higher resolutions come into play. So for me, any 4K screens in the 40-45 inch range are just selling it to you on a gimmick, you won't see the difference.



PREDICTIONS FOR END OF 2015: (Made Jan 1st 2015)

PS4 - 34M - XB1 - 21m - WII U -12M

With Android TV on the horizon and smart TVs having their own netflix apps, this really is not important for either Sony or MS.



"With sales of 4K TVs set to balloon in 2015 and more native 4K content sources appearing week by week, the continuing inability of the PS4 and Xbox One consoles to deliver any sort of 4K action is starting to look more and more uncomfortable."

What is the current base of 4K televisions? How many 4K television were sold in 2014?

I ask, because outside of stores selling them I have never seen a 4K television.



I hope so, HEVC is delivering the same 1080p quality at half the bandwidth.. so hopefully 4K will the become viable to stream at home.. pretty sure the slim versions will support this, would be insane if it doesn't happen.
Even having 1080p video at half the bandwidth would be worth it for people with capped internet

I still haven't seen 4k in the flesh yet, i can only imagine how good it looks :(

You actually kind of have. Ever take a photo with a 13 MP camera? The photos are 4K res.

The consoles should eventually support 4k video, they are capable after all.

4k video is really not that special it really does increase the detail of the picture(too much detail on ppl faces for my taste)but the upgrade is really worth it nonetheless.

The people who say there is not difference between 1080p and 4k,or that you need gigantic screen to notice the difference either have no idea what they're saying, have not experience enough 4k content; if any, or have really bad eye sight, since I can notice it no matter what distance I'm watching from.

4k video is a nice upgrade and all, but it doesn't compare to 4k gaming.Gaming at 4k increases the detail a LOT,everything stands out on the screen, and even the colors are more vibrant.Anyways just like anything else you get used to it and it kind of loses its "wow effect."

Or they have science and facts on their side. This is my post from earlier. That diagram is based off of someone with 20/20 vision. Maybe you just had a really crappy HDTV, so the 4k TV looks awesome in comparison.

Also, I'm pretty sure that 4k has nothing to do with colors being more vibrant.

Yeah well I do admit the benefits start to diminish at a certain distance, but not everyone will see the image the same way.A group of people could have the same level of vision, but not everyone is going to have the same perception.Some of the people in that group might be able to notice the difference by focusing their view into specific details that see a greater benefit from the higher resolution.While the ppl that didn't see the difference from the higher resolution focused their view into something else that didn't see much benefit,thus were unable to see it.

Bolded: I doubt anyone with a 4k capable gaming PC would have a crappy tv, I for instance upgrade at least 1 of my tvs to the newer model every year.

About the last part yeah, i don't think higher resolution affects color, maybe the extra clarity "enhanced" the game's textures and made them look more vibrant, I don't know. 



Highly doubt it, even more so that it's only intend would be video streaming as of now.

Assuming the average viewing distance for television is 6 feet (1830 mm), p@0.4 is about 120 ppi and p@1 is about 50 ppi.

Most consumer large screen LCD and LED panels are about 50 ppi to 90 ppi, and average about 72 ppi. Now you know why. If your television gets smaller in size, then the higher ppi doesn’t really help. This is why 1920×1080 (at 100 ppi at 6 feet for a 50″ LCD/LED television panel) is good enough. The eye can’t really resolve a lot more at 6 feet.

So I think it is simple that at >55" < 6 feet away you'll notice a difference. Considering how most HDTV's that boast 4k are greater than or equal to 55 inches, your comments are kind of irrelevant. People who buy 4k already have televisions big enough to notice a difference. 




They support 4k video already...



4K would be too expensive in my opinion. And 4K monitors already cost so much money. Is the penetration rate really that high for 4K TVs?
