The PlayStation 4 seems to be able to support such technology with its octal-core processor banks paired with 8GB of RAM.
Back when HD was first coming out during 2005, there were not many folks who did not acquired the technology right away due to the lack of content being present with the tech.
That changed once the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 arrived, as both of them deliver a monsoon of reasons for people to jump on the HD bandwagon.
The piece claims the same phenomenon is about to happen with the Xbox 720 and PlayStation 4, which will end up providing various reasons for why people should invest in 4K HDTV technology.
The article goes on to guess, "I believe we will see 4K in consoles enjoy a staggered rollout. First, it'll be all about the games. Not every game will be available in 4K, but all will likely be at 1080p and the console will upscale to 2K or 4K.
"Later, "Play in Ultra HD" will become some sort of a marketing line, like "Better with Kinect" became for Microsoft and some of its motion-control games.
"Further down the line, Sony will announce a 4K video-on-demand service, where films in Ultra HD can be downloaded to the console from the cloud. These movies already exist within studio walls, they just need a way of conveniently getting into the living room. A games console could be the doorway.
"Within five years, all games on both consoles will be output at 4K resolutions and both Sony and Microsoft will become dominant players in the disc-free distribution of Ultra HD movies."
This is an interesting parallel to draw between the two time frames, but is it the same? Can you compare the tech climate in 2005 to how things currently are today?
