According to some earlier rumors, Sony is getting ready to release a mid-generation PlayStation 4 hardware refresh. If rumors will prove to be right, the upcoming console will come with a visual upgrade and an additional processor and, of course, a more powerful GPU integration, which will allow people to play games at a 4K resolution.

However, what’s quite interesting is that Sony is internally referring to the new console as “PlayStation 4K”, because according to some reports, the improved specs and more powerful GPU of the new console are not expected to be able to provide native 4K gaming at the same quality level as the current 1080p games.

If this proves to be true, we must ask ourselves why Sony has decided to name the console “4K”. If you ask us, the engineers from Sony will need to solve the rendering issues before coming with a “4K” model of PlayStation.

Rumors say that the upcoming PlayStation 4K will most likely allow a wider color gamut and a high-dynamic range in games, but it will also come with the ability to play the games from the current and next-generation ULTRA HD media. Even if it sounds quite good, we will need to firstly wait for some official specifications from Sony along with some gameplay demos in order to truly see if this upcoming console will be able to run games at 4K without any FPS drops or other issues.

If we find more information about the PlayStation 4K we will let you know. Hopefully, Sony will soon confirm this upcoming console and it will enlighten us with what is capable of.

What are your thoughts about the upcoming PlayStation 4K? Will you ditch your PlayStation 4 console for this new one in order to be able to play games at 4K resolution?
