Tom Ellis of Gamer Attitude theorises the next Killzone could be to showcase PS4's 4K capabilities.
is this a joke?
LOl 4k at stable 60FPS :/
We won't even see a stable 4k for the next generation of consoles. Not even the strongest single gpu can even handle the latest games on 4k at 60 frames and max settings.
Well console games are typically happy to sit at 30fps with a mixture of medium-high settings (and some custom effects), the next gen will likely be pushed to go 4k. I see visual detail levels beginning to settle into a status quo of "good enough" over the course of this gen; it's much too expensive already to make games (hence DLC, pre-order content, season passes etc.) and pushing much further with artistic detail will increase costs exponentially. I reckon next gen will focus on mildly enhancing current detail levels but improving resolution and framerate. 4k might seem like a stretch now but we're talking 5 years from now. It might be like last gen with the handful of 1080p games it offered, but I've no doubt it will be there. Next gen should at least make 1080p/60 a standard, regardless.
LMFAO We will NEVER see a game running in 4K on the PS4. EVER. Meanwhile, I can't wait for World of Tanks on the Xbox One which will be running in 4K. Not 2 years into this gen and already Xbox One is the first to have a 4K game. Funny...Xbox One was also the first console to see a game running in 1080p and a locked 60fps. Sony has said themselves PS4 won't have 4K games and that you will only see 4K playback video. Meanwhile, Major Nelson has said Xbox One will have 4K games...and behold, World of Tanks confirmed to be in 4K.
Maybe it'll be a slideshow?
Who knows, maybe the next game will be an 8bit shooter.
I sure hope whoever wrote this was joking.
The deep, deep lolz. Who the hell is approving these articles? First that is developer dependent, not console, if they want to make a game at that res, they are free to do so, clearly at many, many and I mean many limitations. Second, Sony has already stated they have no plans for 4k gaming this gen with PS4. Third, 4k on a new killzone doesn't mean it would look better, the trade-off would be so damn significant that many features gamers are expecting would not be their. Lighting, shadows, real time particle effects, animations etc, they would need to tone down sooooooo much, that your ONLY getting a better res, but what the hell is a better resolution to a game that looks like crap? To do that is to make Killzone look LESSOR graphically based on what they have to turn off and remove just to hit that number. You'll just have a crispy looking, flat, non-texture, no real time lighting, slow running game. Who wants to play that? I'm confused as I thought they might have meant Killzone 1 from PS2, as I 100% can see that running in 4K on PS4 as I can see original XB games running at 4k on XONE as some of those games that gen lacked many features that would make it hard to put in that resolution to make it playable. ie Killzone 1 on PS4 in 4k is likely very doable, vs Killzone Shadow Fall as in its current state and quality is technically impossible. If they wanted to, they would have already done so, but its clear its not worth the huge trade-off in effects, quality, features JUST to get such a thing. Those bragging rights don't get folks buying PS4's as I'm pretty damn sure Halo 6 in 1080p, 60fps will destroy anything in 4k on CURRENT CONSOLES as they can focus on graphic quality and pushing many effects, vs a game that can't. This article had might as well be about Ouya getting Half Life 3 at 4k.... Not news, doesn't technically even make sense and doesn't factor many, many things.
I'll believe it when I see it. Until then, it's just hypebole.
It has to be considering BOTH console makers have stated publicly that NO Xbox One and PS4 cannot do 4k gaming...4k Video YES, they are both capable of that but not gaming...So its not like some secret when they are both saying their consoles are unable
It must be a joke because Shadowfall made my ps4 sound like it was going to burn up or something as it is.
There won't be any games this gen that can play games at 4k. Just requires way too much power. Even the average GPUs for PC struggle to hit 4k while also being playable. Instead of Killzone at 4k on the PS4 I'm sure will see killzone on VR. We did see K3 in the move so it makes sense.
They can't even keep a stable FPS with 1080P 30fps. So I woudln't bet on it
uhhhhhh, what game has that problem that you know of?
@Assie It was patched.
Still not stable at 30 FPS.
Wasn't the problem that it was above 30FPS but then they released a patch that allowed you to lock it at 30FPS? We are talking about Killzone Shadowfall right since this article is about Killzone. As for games with 1080P and a rock solid 30FPS there are plently of examples. Like Batman Arkham Knight for example especially after the patch.
Some third prty games
Will not happen with either system.
BS. There's no way it could ruin kz at 4k unless it was streamed or prerendered
I'm sure they'd rather focus on cutting edge rendering techniques, considering nobody even has a 4k tv.
I have a 4k TV :) (Sony Bravia xbr 65") but I agree. I don't think gen 8 consoles can render 2160p realtime and I'd rather them work on better more efficient rendering and effects etc with that reality set.
People have 4k TVs :| Nobody has a 4k Playstation right now though, which is a bigger hurdle to a 4k Killzone lol.
So do I. Lots of people have them, they're pretty cheap. Mine cost $299 with no tax and free shipping from TigerDirect. Now is it great for gaming at 4k? No. 37hz isn't very good at 4k. But it does 1080p/136, 1440p/80, 1620/63, 1800/52. (with 4k being 2160/37). Oh and I bought it last year in September. They even had it cheaper last summer for $289. Hell I saw newegg with a 4k for $249. Though I wouldn't recommend it for gaming because as far as I can tell it wasn't like the great Seiki 39 inch with true 120/136 hz input. But nonetheless it WAS still a 42 inch 4ktv for $249. But you might say, well those are off brands, true. But I've been seeing more name brand ones for about $500-600. 4ktv's are getting cheap, you don't need the super duper internet and spying TV for $3,000. But then again I'm the type of guy who has had two HDTV's, one of them for 12 years, and a 4ktv bought last year, all new from a store, and if you add up the retail price I paid on ALL three of those tv's, I paid under $1250. So yeah, look around, and realize the prices on 4k are dropping faster then 1080p did.
I do as well. 50" internet enabled 4K for $650. Damn good deal and while not the biggest, best TV available still provides amazing visuals, particularly with actual 4K content.
I have the 79 inch lg 4k, love it also have the 11.2 atmos 4k tuner to go with it. 4k tvs are getting cheaper so more and more people will make the jump.
Lol and how much did this guy have to drink before he said this.
SATIRE or did this guy just accidentally revealed Killzone 4 on PC!!!
PS4 exclusives are only avaliable for PS4, unlike the Xbox One "exclusives".
and Microsoft as you may already know is a pc company as well..so of course they support both their products.
pc needs to first run a killzone shadowfall 1080p equivalent, then worry about killzone 4k
PS4 cannot handle 4k gaming due to HDMI standard which is v1.4
Yep, that's EXACTLY why the PS4 cannot handle 4k gaming. Cause of its HDMI port. Mhm.
That's the only absolute. No matter what they manage to get the console to render, it will be limited to 30hz or (4:2:0 chroma if they get fancy) because that's all the HDMI port is capable of outputting.
Let's say the PS4 had the power to do a 4K killzone game. It would do 4K with a 1.4 HDMI port. But at 30hz.
Yeah, um PS4 doesn't have the power for 4k gaming, and with hdmi 1.4, it cannot do 60 FPS at 4k even if somehow you could replace the GPU/CPU in it. HDMI 1.4 can basically allow this, if you tweak stuff in windows. 1080p/136 1440p/80 1620/63 1800/52 4k/37 That's basically the most you can push out of a HDMI 1.4... though perhaps if you take out the audio stream you might be able to add a couple more frames per second at those resolutions. 4k gaming at this point is mostly reserved for SLI/Crossfire. I mean yeah I can game 4k on my 970, but I'd have to turn everything on low-medium and accept 15-37 FPS. Remember the 970 is about twice the raw power of a PS4, with better efficiency, and most people likely have a CPU that is far better, my i7 [email protected] ghz runs circles around the PS4's CPU. In other words, no, consoles at this point would need about 10 TFlops to be a true 4k/60 machine, and of course, with IQ continually increasing, you should expect that to easily double to maintain a 4k/60 on new games in say 2018-2019. ~1.8 simply isn't going to do it. Besides while it was a great launch title, KZ:SF had some technical issues at 1080p in which they need to use a trick to maintain 1080p by only updating every other line.
nice gpu that cant run anything near uncharted 4 or horizon
No fanboys here at all... just hard fact.
Technically it can be accomplished at 2FPS!!
I just bought a Samsung Ultra HD 4k tv two days ago and it is BEAUTIFUL!I swear it makes 30 fps look like 60fps. But i seriously doubt we will se 4k gaming on these consoles, But if we do im 4K ready!!!
*Takes Tom Ellis' journalist card and tears it into pieces*
4K 120FPS Game will be 30 minutes long. Enjoy!
They prolly just upscale it to 4k like they do with xbox that upscale to 1080p that's all I can think of
it was announced a long time ago ps4 cant do 4k only xbox one can
LOLNope. Current consoles are going to be stuck with 1080P for games. The developers of the Trine series managed to get Trine 2 running at 4k at 30fps on the PS4 but Sony has limited the resolution output for games to 1080P.
VERY uneducated author on this one. All he'd have to do is look at GPU benches on YouTube and realize thousand dollar GPUs like the Titan X Don't even hold smooth 4k yet... Really shocked this got approved
LMAO the the ps4 can barely handle 30fps on any new title. Some joker has the gall to even speculate about 4k on a console that still can't run a high end CRYSIS 3. Give us a break. Shit like this only gets approved on N4G
My guess is that Guerrilla is planning to UPSCALE their native 1080P Killzone to 4K. That's rendering 1920x1080 textures conformed to work within a 2160P space. If that's the case it's doable with a HDMI 2.0 cable and honestly won't look much different (or better) on a 4K television.
... maybe Tetris.
Doubt the PS5 will even be 4K across the board.
This poor soul knows nothing about the consoles he's talking about. The PS4 will never play a game of the visual caliber of Killzone at 4K 30fps. As for 60fps, well none of the PS4 or Xbox One consoles out at the moment have the correct HDMI port to support 4K at above 30fps.
I don't think either console's 4k capabilities would be something they'd want the public to see.
4K TV's are affordable now they just use cheaper materials for for the panels not just the frames, my Panasonic TH-42PX75U plasma is made of steel with a high grade plastic bevel attached to the steele and the panel still has a perfect picture with no scratches after 8 years what I'm saying is the new fairly expensive Samsung I just got felt like it would break apart in my hands if I wasnt careful and when the PS5 comes out they will have to make it 4K because 4K the TV's will be a dime a dozen by then.
4k, 30fps is very impressive for Playstation if can be done.
4k at 1 FPS? Come on be realistic. Let's get to 1080p and stable 60 FPS first...
Anyone seriously thinking today's consoles will see 4k gaming, have obviously taken the blue pill...
