Some people on the internet blames Sony for misleading customers with a term that they use regarding the PlayStation 4 Pro.
Some games, such as Horizon: Zero Dawn, doesn’t run on a native 4K resolution (3840×2160), but on something smaller upscaled to 4K, and that’s what we’d get on 4K TVs. Andrew House had a comment about it at Digital Spy .
„I would say the majority [of games] will be upscaled – at least based on the game portfolio I have seen to date.” When he was asked about the 4K gaming whether it was a misleading term or not, he replied, „No, I don’t think so. I think that whatever the term is, it’s a question of whether people see a demonstrable difference in the game experience or not, rather than the term we use to apply to it. I think that’s what people are looking for, and they’ll make their judgment as to whether that’s working for them or not.”
Sony thinks the term is okay to use, as there will be a noticeable jump from the PlayStation 4 Slim to the PS4 Pro, and it doesn’t matter what the term means as long as customers see the difference.
Still, he said „majority” – will there be games running on native 4K then?
