I've not seen any games on a 4k TV. But, think of it this way. Most XBox360 and PS3 games were 720p and many of them were sub-720p, then they were upscaled to 1080p when connected to a 1080p display. Most of those games looked great on 1080p sets, despite being 720p or less. I have no doubt that the newer consoles will still look great on a 4k set. Obviously, they won't look as sharp as native 4k material, but they should still look very good. It's not like you're upscaling 240p to 4k.
With that said, I don't think 4k content is going to be very mainstream for several years, if even that. People are still buying DVDs in droves and many are still hesitant to adopt Blu-ray. How fast could 4k possibly take off? Again, this is all my opinion, but with how popular streaming of shows and movies in mediocre picture quality is, I wouldn't expect to see a ton of 4k content, at least not in the immediate future. Personally, I'd spend some good money on a good quality, large 1080p set. However, if you really feel the need to have a 4k set, I have no doubt the newer consoles will look darn good on them.
