Peeling back the layers

Living up to its namesake, Sony’s next generation platform will be capable of outputting video in 4K resolution – however that functionality won’t extend to games. Chatting with Joystiq earlier today (or last night, our days are blurring together right now), Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida explained that no titles currently in development for the PlayStation 4 will support the super high-definition format.

The platform holder pushed 4K technology hard at the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this year, leading us to ponder whether the functionality would factor into the manufacturer’s impending machine. Now we have an answer, we’d like to personally thank Sony for not railroading us into buying yet another expensive television.
