    The specification read the max resolution as 1080p and i never knew 1080p is called 4k :D

    It is just a resigned ps3 which is slimmer and uglier and there is nothing 4K about it,however Sony has hinted that an update to all models of ps3 will make them 4k compatible in the future(not sure how much of this is true though).

    Actually Sony and apple are similar in many things but sony did make amazing products in the 80's and early 90's which works flawless even now after 30 years.After the late 90's Sony became more dependent upon their name and just marketing already existing technology in different names, people still bought it because its a Sony a and just like how they buy apple.

    Then we should stick to the model number and not 4K, specially since the term 4K is most of the time going to represent 4K resolution.
