Stunning sample 4K image from a PS3

We finally got to see examples of what an ultra-high-resolution still photo outputted by a PlayStation 3 will look like. We like!

There've been previous reports that a PlayStation 3 will soon be able to output ultra-high-resolution 4K (4,096x2,160) still photos, and we finally got to see some samples at the recent Sony VPL-VW1000ES media launch. They were breathtakingly detailed and faithfully rendered by this $24,999 4K home theater projector.

Pardon us for the washed-out colors in the above screenshot captured under room lighting, though the tiled roofs and road still demonstrated the extra clarity offered by 4K technology. The PS3 software upgrade to enable this feature is due to be released in early 2012, according to Engadget. No news on 4K video support, yet though.

Who knows what else Sony has in store for the PS3? Share your wish list with us below.

Walmart's five buck LED is one of the brightest we've tested

For basic lighting needs, this bulb looks like a solid pick, but its dimming performance leaves a lot to be desired.
