Sony's new 4K media player looks like a PS4, but it's not
New 4K Ultra HD Media Player has 1TB of storage and is launching this summer.
Sony today announced (via Videogamer) a new 4K Media Player, which certainly looks a lot like the PlayStation 4 with its angular edges and rectangular shape. Sorry to burst your bubble, though. It's not a re-designed PS4.
The 4K Ultra HD Media Player (FMP-X10) goes on sale this summer (price TBA) and allows you to download, stream, and store a range of 4K content. You can download movies and shows from Sony's Video Unlimited 4K, stream 4K content from Netflix, or even play back content from a Sony 4K TV. The box includes 1TB of built-in storage and of course, you'll need a 4K-compatible TV to make it work.
The PS4 does not currently support 4K output for games. Prior to the console's launch last year, Sony said that it is considering adding support for 4K output for still images and movie content, but made clear that "there are no further details to share."
