Consumer electronics companies have begun the 4K push, and now it seems everyone is scrambling to get their houses in order. The PS4 and Xbox One are already technically capable of outputting 4K video, but considering how much these consoles struggle to reach 1080p, is 4K really feasible with the existing hardware? Netflix seems to think we’re in for PS4 and Xbox One hardware revisions this year, but are Sony and Microsoft willing to burn their early adopters?

Back in January, Netflix’s Neil Hunt said publicly that Sony had supposedly promised a PS4 hardware revision with improved 4K support in mind. Earlier this week, Forbes followed up with Hunt, and he maintains that both the Xbox One and PS4 will see hardware refreshes at around the two-year mark. Specifically, he believes that they’ll include updated internals aimed at supporting 4K video playback.
