PS4 will feature Sony’s 4K movie service at some point. However, film downloads could hit the 100GB mark. Ouch.

Speaking with The Verge in a video interview, Sony Electronics President and COO Phil Molyneux laid down some details about PS4’s capability for 4K movies and pictures. 4K games still aren’t supported unfortunately.

Molyneux said, some movie downloads would hit “100 gigabytes and plus”, and that broadband speed and bandwidth will be looked at and tackled in due course. The idea of downloading a film over a few days isn’t appealing, but it’s good to know that Sony is considering its options.

He added that these are, “challenges that we have to work through… we’ve got some very good ideas that will make that a comfortable consumer experience.”

Would you use the 4K service if you got your hands on a compatible telly? Let us know below.

Meanwhile, we’ve got the first official shots of the PS4 user interface. Check them out here.

Thanks IGN.
