Watch on the Playstation Blog. No details on whether Playstation will be talked about or not yet, but Kaz will be there.

terrible sync, or just me ?

#4 Posted by Bane122 (786 posts) -

Nope, bad for me as well. Also dropping out a fair bit.

Yeah the audio is out of sync by like 5 seconds or so. Cannot watch it at this rate.

Stopped watching, but I'm pretty sure I was listening to Molyneux talking about his balls at some point.

So it finally did happen.

Prediction: Sony will push 4K in the PS4, like they tried (and failed) to do with 3D (My guess is It probably won't be announced here though).

Watching 4K through 480p isn't very impressive. Get it together Sony!

They're not gonna be able to sell a machine that is able to push out 4k graphics. 4k is just ahead of it's time at the moment, there's basically no services out there that would be able to serve 4k content even if they wanted to.

This, if PC still need more time to viably reach that point then thinking that will happen on consoles will only be a pipe dream. The only way the PS4 will play 4k content won't be with games but maybe with movies.

Can't believe what a douche this interviewer is, directly reading off cue cards...

They can totally sell a device that can push 4k graphics, and I'd bet money the PS4 will. It would be nuts for Sony to not push 4k with their premier home entertainment box considering how much they've invested in it.

Whenever 4k comes up, everyone acts as if it's going to be prohibitively expensive to include, and I've never seen any real evidence supporting that. 4k video cards will have been on the market for the better part of two years by next fall, and Sony's in a position to work out a good exclusive deal with NVIDIA or ATI.

I agree that the case for 4k in gaming isn't too strong. Most games will probably come nowhere near rendering at 4k, just like most PS3 games come nowhere near rendering at 1080p (letalone 720p) now. But considering Sony's ramping up their push for 4k home video, and taking into account that the video chipset they end up picking may support 4k anyway, I'm just assuming the PS4 will support it.

Technically, they already ship a console supporting 4k — the PS3 can output 4k images.

Anything worth noting so far? Just started watching and they seem to be covering some mobile game. Talking about how many polygons and pixels a smartphone GPU sounds ridiculously pointless.
