Sony confirms 4K movies for PS4, say hello to 100GB downloads

Techradar - Is the world ready for movie downloads in excess of 100GB? Sony seems to think so, with super high-resolution 4K movies now confirmed for the PS4.
The Verge reported this week that Sony Electronics President and Chief Operating Officer Phil Molyneux confirmed 4K video will indeed be supported on the company's still-unseen PS4. (Gaming, PS4, Sony, Video)

i think i'd prefer discs, that way they don't take up any more space than my "low res" dvds.

assuming i ever get a 4k tv at some point, and i don't see that happening for a long, long time, if at all.

nice thing is that they are thinking ahead. It will be years for this to be the norm but you'll already have a machine capable of doing so. I remember back in 07 when Microsoft said hdmi and 1080p wasn't needed for gaming.

Japan might be the target for 4k. There government has already pushed the start of the turnover I think. US is way behind Japan in technology. Plus over here the seller has to be the one to cover the bandwidth cost. Two movies and you're almost out of bandwidth on a lot of providers.

Progress sucks? It's not like 4K will be the only option available. Blu-ray will still be there. Sony are thinking ahead and providing support for this early. Doesn't mean that you will have to use it.

Maybe if American cable companies and major internet providers did not fuck over the US public on bandwidth then maybe 100GB downloads would not be a problem. Now also unless google fiber hits the US nation wide pretty soon. I will be taking disks or possibly streaming but downloading a 100GB movie on my 10Mbp internet no thank you.

I just think with 4K just around the corner ( perhaps 1 to 2 years ) and with Sony usually future-proofing their electronic hardwares, PS4 included will/or might put out a 1TB HDD or more of internal space as an option just to accommodate all the various downloadable contents.
