In terms of filmed entertainment I suspect the next 5 years will be packed to the gills with 4K choices. But in terms of gaming, not so much. This generation of consoles is going to be much like the last in terms of being the lowest common denominator. Now do I think the XBone will always have problems hitting 1080p output? No. Once the developers have had a few years with it I suspect they'll be able to easily coax 1080p out of it at an acceptable framerate. But neither the PS4 nor the XBone is going to be capable of gaming at 4K. And looking at the current crop of video cards that are out there that were likely to be considered for these "next gen" consoles I think it's ludicrous that that was ever a rumor.
So 4K gaming will be a PC only thing for the foreseeable future and as someone who games primarily on the PC, I am totally OK with that.
