4K Movie downloads for PS4?

Sony announced their new gaming console the “PlayStation 4” not too long ago. It was made apparent that the new gaming console will not be able to stream previous PlayStation 3 game, leaving many video game fans underwhelmed. So what more does Sony has install for the new PlayStation 4?

The PS4 is to collaborate with the “world’s first” 4K movie download service. “I promise you will not be disappointed” said Sony Electronics President and COO Phil Molyneux. This report has certainly clarified previous rumours concerning the PS4 that would be able to support 4K photos and videos, but not games.

The Verge interviewed Molyneux at a Sony event in New York City. Molyneux indicated that typical movie titles would be over 100GB in size, so taking advantage of 4K content will require decent broadband connection and a high data limit.

With file size that large, the quality promises to exceed anything available on Blu-ray today, but for many users a download of that size could take hours. Molyneux was non-committal about the future of Blu-ray mentioning that the whole world is moving toward downloads.  Sounds like a lot of overnight downloading to me.

Quoted from The Verge- “Molyneux was bullshit about the future of online delivery for 4K- he said that he’s personally heading up the download service project, and added that while he was “not discounting” physical 4K distribution on Blu-ray or other media, “the whole world is moving more and more to download.”
