Early 2012 PS3 update to allow 4K still output

In a runaround way, Sony Japan revealed it will allow the PS3 to display 4K resolution photos thanks to an upcoming firmware update. The introduction of the company's VPL-VW1000ES 4K projector at CEATEC in Japan also contained mention of the PS3 update due at the start of 2012. It will allow the games console to natively output 4096x2160-resolution still images.

Currently, displays connected to the PS3, most commonly with maximum 1080p resolutions, mean any images larger than 1920x1080 aren't fully displayed. This firmware will change this, allowing 4K displays such as Sony's new projector to work with the PS3 to display images in all their glory. Whether a 4K video output update will ever reach Sony's console remains to be seen.

Japan already offers a visual magazine called PlayView that supports both 4K and 3D content.
