Sony's 4K TVs get priced

Sony has announced the official price and availability for its new XBR 4K Ultra HD LED TVs. The line includes the XBR-55X900A and the XBR-65X900A, which have screen sizes of 55-inches and 65-inches respectively. While some other manufacturers have offered ultra HD television sets at prices ranging all the way up to $20,000 or more, Sony is actually offering “reasonable” prices, at least comparatively.

The 55-inch TV will sell for $4,995 with the 65-inch version going for $6,999. Both TVs will be available for pre-order on April 21, but the final shipping date is unannounced. Along with pricing and launch information for the TVs Sony is also unveiled its 4K Media Player called the FMP-X1. This device will deliver movies and video shorts in 4K resolution for $699. The media player will be available later this summer.

For current games built around technology that has to largely run on current gen consoles, sure. Next generation games that are designed to run on the next generation consoles? We'll see. Yes those new consoles still are only designed around 1080p. But they're still a pretty big leap forward from current consoles. They've achieved pretty amazing things with those consoles. They'll do the same with the next consoles. Which means games that push PCs harder too. With the next Xbox and the PS4 both having 8GB of RAM, that means probably at least 4GB of RAM being used in games, if not 6-7GB. A heck of a lot better than the < 512MB currently.
