@ 39, oycomics- good predictions. Like others here, I believe it’s either the PS4 or a Cloud service affecting all of Sony’s products or just for kicks, an announcement stating that Google has acquired Sony.

I’ve bought all of Sony’s consoles on day 1; the hype is on brothers & sisters!

If it is the PS4 announcement it is a power play move and comes after Kaz stated he would prefer to come in after MS so they couldn’t study and copy anything from the Sony next gen console… Hope it is though…

I wonder if Sony will decide not to continue the tradition of numbering the playstations. I prefer a completely new name. But not as corny as Vita…

It’s not like hard to tell, you guys just announced the 4k Ultra HD televisions. And “The Sony Way” has always been to only upgrade when there’s big stuff to put in it that would be impossible to just patch through an update. (Which is like the inverse of Apple…) You keep making big stuff to put in the next Gen consoles… First was Blu-Ray for the PS3, and now the next definition of video service? (I guess nobody was really amused with the 3D TVs… But from the tech, the 4k sounds really pretty.)

Why are you all talking about the PS4? I’m sorry did a new format get released that replaces blu-ray? No?…So yeah, no PS4. PS1=first real CD format games. PS2=DVD format. PS3=Blu-Ray. PS4=what ever is the new technology format, since there isn’t one, don’t expect a new system. We don’t need a new system because there is nothing to upgrade to form the PS3. Plus the sales for the system are climbing. Nintendo needed a new system and surprise, nobody is buying it, can go anywhere and find one, unlike the Wii release where you waited a year to get one. Xbox needs a new system because they released theirs using dvd formatting, which is greatly inferior to blu-ray. Sony created the top console and most people are noticing that.

The release of PS4 would add little to the PS3 and would cost Sony millions in loss because for those of you that have no clue, when any company releases their system, they are forced to sell at a price lower than the cost to make them because it’s new and new manufacturing cost way more and Sony is struggling in every department except playstation. So they can’t afford the losses of a new system and quite frankly there is no need for it. Except for to please idiot gamers who need a new shiny system that does nothing more than PS3 because there is no new format in which to upgrade to at this time.

Bingo. Whether or not the next gen is announced in Feb., the next gen will include 4k resolution.

The next gen WILL have 4K. Sony and many other hardware manufacturers are already making the transition. The file size of the average length feature movie in 4K format is 120 gigs. This will not fit on a Blu-Ray.

Therefore, your logic is illogical.

Dear playstation, i am a long time playstation supporter and i do not like the playstation store layout. it is too flashy and confusing. One of the Halo games has an option to switch from the new version to the old one. it would be conveniant for everybody if you could make an option like that. Sincerely..(⌐■_■)

+ icurafuse on January 31st, 2013 at 9:07 pm said:

@218
Yes, it will support 4K. But games are still capped at 1080P. 4K just means that if you plug your PSIV into a 4K TV, it will work on the 4K setting. Bluray will be upscaled as well as games. It would be interesting to see if they do introduce a 4K videos as well, as from either enhanced bluray or by download.

I’m calling the name “PlayStation Ivy” instead of PlayStation 4

4K only fits on a Blu-Ray if the file is compressed. A compressed 4K file would then be upscale converted. This is NOT actual 4K.

For 4K to fit on a Blu-Ray, a new Blu-Ray disc would have to be manufactured with increased layering. Current Blu-Ray players including the PS3 drive would not be able to read the increased layering.

A player with an upscaler is not the same as actual 4K resolution. Just as playing a DVD through RCA cables to an AV receiver that upscales to HDMI is an actual HD format.

Now tell me that this is “bs”.

- DowJones/WSJ seems to be confirming the PS4 announcement on Feb. 20.

- New console not officially named “PlayStation 4,” at least not yet.

- This “See the Future” teaser video is silly.

The PS3 is not capable of 4k. It is capable of 4k compressed and upscaled to a 4k ready device.

Yet you tell me my position is wrong? Point out exactly what I said that was inaccurate.

@235 GAIKAI would facilitate the 4K format, as Sony is already moving towards digitization.

you said Blu-ray isn’t ready for 4k when it is completely with quad layering which is due to be released this year

+ damac10 on January 31st, 2013 at 9:35 pm said:

Lets not forget the 800lb gorilla in the room…Ps4 announcement is highly unlikely as there are too many AAA Ps3 titles on the horizon for May etc….I reckon its the reveal of Gaikai and how Sony plan to intergrate it into VIta , Ps3 and give an idea for next gen ambitions..We will see more of the Last of Us , Beyond 2 Souls and maybe some hot Vita titles with a better look at Killzone Mercenary…..My 2 cents folks….

+ Sponge-worthy on January 31st, 2013 at 9:35 pm said:

You could certainly fit 4K video onto a Blu-ray disc.

However, the current AVC video profile for Blu-ray video has a max rate of about 40 Mb/s. So, 4K video output would either need be severely compressed under that standard, or it would need to use its own codec entirely. In the later case, you would likely want to increase the storage capacity for the BD, else you won’t be able to store much video on a single disc.


241

+ Aeryn_James on January 31st, 2013 at 9:39 pm said:

Quad-layer would still be a compressed 4K file.

HD source to 4K screen ≠ 4K HD ULTRA

4K source to 4K screen = 4K HD ULTRA

200 GB for raw materiels is bad I agree but for production version it more then cool so you say 1 single movie is going to eat all of my traffic after watching 4k movie stream lol GAIKAI will be implemented as 4k streaming service it was told at CES gosh people have google and wikipedia and still don’t know a thing

So don’t have any valid cogent counterpoints. As far as using the internet as an information source, guilty as charged. I assume you must must be employed within the research and development department of Sony?
