Re: Is a 4k TV worth it for PS4?

Aug 5, 2014
If u want to game in 4k your going to need an i7 4770 or equivalent with a amd 295x2 or equivalent to get the most out of your tv, i dont know alot of single cards that do 4k well outside of nvidia sli or amd crossfire like 2 amd 290x or 2 780ti. Or 2 780 6gig cards. Your going to need a high end pc to game at 4k but i bet it will be worth it.

Sharp makes the best large tvs. I have a 70in sharp and it's incredible

If you can afford a 4k then do it. Bottoming is it was just like LED tv's and Blu-rays. People all said nothing was or would be compatible now it seems if you don't have either of those items you're hosed. Look for gaming to eventually support 4k. Less we forget people also said games would never be on Blu-ray yet here we are.

Point blank, you will not be losing with the twice the pixels, only winning. Colors will look deeper, contrast higher, and the sense of the immersion will coincide. You know this if you are gaming on 4K monitors. The on-board CPU of a TV that advanced are going to take care of any worry you might have regarding upscaling. They also handle 3D better because the TV can afford to sacrifice pixels without being as jarring to the eyes. You  might not care about  3D but it's part of that package at this point. And how it handles 3D speaks to the refresh rate and pixel density.

 

On my budget I'd say, wait till 4K increases in popularity, and the tech within the units is tweaked more. But if you are planning to make the jump, I wouldn't listen to the naysayers. In fact, you can grab a Sony Bravia with the bonus of PS Now for the same price you'd drop on a Samsung. Not that it would make a big difference. But it's still worth noting.

 

You'll be able to sit slightly closer to a 4K TV running 1080P than a native 1080. Which is a factor since you'll be pushing the higher side of your bugdet with a 65" 4K, whereas you can find a Sony 70" 3D 1080P for $2300 or so. 4K, with firmware updates, and faster on-board engine keeps you future-proofed. 

 

Any other factors to consider?

 

Edit: If you are going with Best Buy, I sincerely hope you are price-matching another store or site.

Ouch. You might want to read that and factor it into your decision-making.

I have a sony 55in 4k tv and I haven't noticed any upscaling in games only in movies. The colour is much nicer than most tvs but actual 4k content is limited. You can really notice the upscaling on older movies; Iwatched an one of the brosnan bond movies and it blew my mind. The best way to judge is to go to the store and see the high end tvs side by side. But if you're going to spend that much money you might as well get 4k because the content is only going to increase with time .

PS4 will support 4k movies.

But not actual games being in 4k. Upscaling does nothing and usually hurts game experience because of the inherent input lag for most HDTVs.

It LOOKS good. But that's it. The PS4's APU is not powerful enough to support 4k gaming. And even PC gamers have issues with running games at 4k because it requires such a massive amount of VRAM. And even with people running multiple GPUs they can barely get 30-40fps. And there isn't even a 4k monitor or TV that supports 60hz.

Save your money.
