You’ve just come home from Best Buy with a brand new 4K TV and your PS4 is still hooked up to your legacy 1080p set.
Or maybe you’ve been holding off on the latest Samsung, Sony, Vizio, or TCL.
The million dollar question is this – how does the PS4 look on a 4k TV? Is it really that big of an upgrade?
It’s going to depend on multiple factors (more on this below), but this is what you need to know:
- The jump to 4k is less impressive than the move to HD resolutions
- The regular PS4 and Slim revision will be upscaled and have the potential to look better
- TVs with poor upscalers can worsen the overall image quality
- The PS4 Pro won’t look as good as native 4K content (Netflix, Blu-rays, etc.), but will appear very sharp or “clean”
