4k is utterly worthless on a tv unless you're about a foot away or its 100", so don't expect that to matter much. On monitors sure, but not tvs.

4K? They can't even comfortably hit 1080p with these new consoles. Even the PS4 has problems doing it in single player content when the machine has to worry about things like AI. I suspect 4K video content will be another story though (not that there is much of that right now either).

Even modern PCs struggle to game at 4K. It will probably be a year before we get decent 4K monitors and graphics cards beefy enough to push them that don't require enough electricity to power a third world nation.
My point was that within the next 5-10 years where will these consoles be in terms of performance if they are having issues running games on today's standard resolution.
Sony and Microsoft made these consoles to last nearly 10 years, but I am having a really hard seeing that happen with the current hardware specs these machines have.
Prime example is above here with the Xbone having trouble running a game that uses an ancient engine at 1080p resolution.

Of course there is not much in terms of 4k content right now but do you think this will be the case in 5 years?
