PS3 will support 4K stills after a future update, moving pictures remain out of reach

Engadget - Once you've cleared the $25k or so in your budget that it will take to snag one of Sony's 4K VPL-VW1000ES your next problem will be finding some 4096x2160 res content to view on it. While showing off the new beamer for its Japanese audience at CEATEC today, Sony announced the PS3 will get a firmware update around the beginning of 2012 that will allow it to natively output 4K stills. (PS3)

Considering 480p material look poor on 1080p sets. Would 720p on 4k set not look poor too ?

480p material doesn't need to look particularly poor on a large 1080p TV - at least not if we're talking about video rather than last generation games.
Most fairly recent DVD movies/TV shows (720x576 in PAL rather than the 720x480 I believe is used for NTSC?) look perfectly fine on my 51" 1080p TV. Hell, it's even sharp enough for the built in 2D to 3D conversion feature to do an okay job with it.

Obviously though, even with an upscaling player a DVD movie doesn't have the potentially pristine image of a Blu-ray movie.

It shouldn't look any worse than on a 1080p TV of the same size. In fact it would probably look better as 1280x720 divides evenly into 3840x2160 giving 3x3 pixels for each of the original source pixels. A little processing and it shouldn't look bad at all, unless you compare it to a true 4k video source.

How is that possible when's the PS3's RSX can only output a maximum of 1080P resolution? Someone please explain

It's because it is a static image, I guess.

My netbook can display a high resolution image as well, but because of the small screen I have to scroll around to see everything.
