Recent reports suggest that the Sony PlayStation 4 will have the ability to download 4K movies through Sony’s 4K movie download service.

In an event in New York City, Sony Electronics President Phil Molyneux hinted that the company’s upcoming gaming console will be able to download 4K movies in the near future using a movie download service developed by Sony. The statement also supports previous reports that the PS4 will be able to play 4K videos and photos.

However, it appears that the company is still working to make the 4K download service a realistic and practical option for regular consumers. According to Molyneux, a typical 4K movie would take at least 100GB in size depending on length.

The large file size of the movie added to the limited broadband speeds currently offered by internet service providers poses a few issues for the movie download service. Molyneux also added that Sony is currently working on improving the compression of 4K movies to make them easier to download.
