The Playstation 4 Rumored to Support 4K Resolution
Time to buy a new TV? Sony's next console will handle twice the resolution of 1080p sets.

Sony's next Playstation console will support resolutions up to 4K, according to a report on BGR.
4K refers to a horizontal pixel count of 4096, as compared with the vertical-count designations that have been standard in the digital television industry, making it close to double the resolution of 1080p.
The report follows Sony's announced 4K XBR LED television line in sizes up to 80 inches, and this could be the start of an industry-wide push for 4K (sort of like the last couple years' 3D craze).
This won't necessarily make the new Playstation prohibitively expensive: sony already sells 4K compatible Blu-ray players for around $200. But if you reach the PS4's optimal visual output, you'll have to pick up a 4K set, which according to rumors could set you back up to $30,000 if you decide you're desperate for Sony's 80-incher.

For only 29999 US dollars!
(Note, it's only a rumor, but I wouldn't be surprised if Sony hadn't learned their lessons from the PS3 and Vita launches)
