PlayStation 4 will support 4K resolution, claims tech blog

Every month seems to bring more rumors concerning the inevitable PlayStation 4 (or is it Orbis?). We're not sure if we're ready to talk about PS4 quite yet - we're still having a blast with our PlayStation 3's and PS Vita's, after all! - but that hasn't stopped tech blog BGR from coming forward with information regarding Sony's next generation.
Apparently, the impending introduction of an 80-inch 4K-capable Sony TV will signal the beginning of a larger home entertainment push for 4K resolution, a movement that will include PS4. Much like PS3's ability to play Blu-Ray discs was designed as an incentive to push HDTVs, Sony is hoping that the PS4's ability to output in 4K (4096 x 2160 pixels) will drive sales of other 4K-capable media products, like TVs and accessories.
BGR's source isn't named, so be sure to take this news with a grain of salt. All the same, it wouldn't be unusual for Sony's brand-new video game console to be on the absolute cutting edge of technology. Unfortunately, to hold such a spot comes at a premium, and we're hoping support of 4K resolution won't drive the PS4's price up too high.
