While there’s still little known about Sony’s efforts to pioneer the first 4K movie download service, one thing we can say almost definitely now is that the service will in fact be compatible with its (supposedly) upcoming PS4. In an interview with The Verge, Sony President and COO Phil Molyneux almost sort of definitely confirmed that the service would be compatible with the ethereal console by promising that we “will not be disappointed.” Oh, and by the way, a typical 4K movie download will chew up more than 100 GB of bandwidth. So when the PS4 actually does take shape, and if Sony’s service actually is compatible, there’s still the small problem of these downloads being wholly impractical for the average user, especially in the age of data caps. Apparently Molyneux is looking on the bright side of things, as he’s called these excruciatingly long download times “a journey.”
