The PS4 has an HDMI 1.4 output, so that can already do up to 4K/30, potentially. (Well, 3840x2160p, not literal 4K). Whether the video pipeline is set up for it is another question entirely.

Finished this up recently. Very good game in most ways, though I think its weakest points were pacing, occasional cheap deaths, and an unsatisfying ending.

The art and sound design for the game...

Still working on Alien: Isolation off and on. I think I'm about halfway through now. Sometimes it's tense and great, and other times it's a bit tedious.

Started on Metro Redux, but I think I'm...

No idea on the YouTube app, though I saw some other posts about the same issue elsewhere.

Unfortunately, the PS3 doesn't natively upscale its games, and most games are 720p, so if you have a 1080i-only TV, most games will downscale to 480p. To avoid this you'll have to select games very...

Platted Bloodborne, finished The Unfinished Swan, maxed out my level on Race The Sun.

The difference this time is that a lot of people are coming to the PS4 from the 360, so there are PS3 exclusive franchises that they've never played. If you want them to get on board for PS4...

Interesting point. The games would all be ~20GB each with the original assets used and the 3D elements removed, and a dual-layer BD can only hold 50GB. Remastered assets are only going to increase...

Got the plat tonight. Headless Bloodletting Beast was pretty annoying, but the final chalice boss was straightforward.

Yeah, "using" is the key word there. And using it requires having 4 red jellies already.

I might have considered a package that included 1080p remasters of GOW 1-3 and the PSP games (don't really care about Ascension), but GOW3 on its own isn't enough to grab my interest.

CounterSpy is fun; I've already beaten it twice and just started an Expert playthrough. It has some limitations, but it's entertaining enough.

Picked this one up for $25 recently and I've been completely sucked in by it. Lots of fun, and play sessions tend to be quite long. I'll probably hit 40 hours before I finish this one.
