More PS4: 4K video, Blu-ray, and used games are a go!

We’re learning a lot more about the PlayStation 4, just hours after it was announced. Joystiq reports the console will output 4K resolution, but only for video that was recorded in the format. President of Sony Worldwide Studios Shuhei YoshidaHe says games will not play in the ultra high definition. Other PS4 tech specs that weren’t revealed during the big event in New York last night include an optical drive that reads 6-speed Blu-ray and 8-speed DVD discs; “super speed” USB 3.0 port; plus HDMI, analog, AV and optical audio outputs. Much to the relief of GameStop and bargain hunters everywhere, Sony has confirmed that the PS4 won’t require an always-on internet connection and that it will not block used games.
