4K Output for PS4 Games Isn’t “Currently Supported”; No Launch Games are 3D Compatible

PS4 and Controller

As we’re just over two weeks away from the PlayStation 4 launch on November 15th in the United States and Canada, Sony has decided to release a Mega PS4 FAQ. Since it can be rather daunting and contains so much information, we’ll be breaking the important information we’ve yet to cover fully into separate posts, hopefully making finding what you need a little easier.

Looking at screen resolution, the PlayStation 4 will support 480p, 720p, 1080i, and 1080p via HDMI output. Additionally, the PS4 doesn’t support analog video or audio output (HDMI handles both), with the system also able to output 5.1 or 7.1 audio via Digital Out (optical).

When it comes to 4K resolution output, Sony is considering it at the moment for still images and movies, but when it comes to games, “PS4 does not currently support 4K output.”

Seemingly debunking the listing for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag on the PlayStation Store, the PS4 will “technically” support 3D gameplay at launch, but there are no currently 3D compatible launch games.

Finally, when you change TVs with the PS4, you do not need to “reset” your video settings, as you do on PS3.

Do you hope they add 4K support for games at some point in the PS4′s life? Let us know in the comments below.
