This is a pretty ridiculous oversight especially with a $299 XB1 S that can do it right now.

Yes but netflix and youtube will release apps that offer 4K content so that's okay.

lol. I assumed they didn't mention it because it was obvious that it would because they are pushing 4K hard. It's laughable that they decided not to bother with the ability to play 4K blu-rays.

Wait.....XB1 S plays them, right?

Why doesn't Sony's latest device play the latest version of a format they helped create?

That would be pretty stupid if true.

Can't say I'd care though to be honest.

Don't worry guys, word on the street is that Sony will release a new Playstion model after E3 with an additional two layers and that will play 4K Bluray.
6 layer PlayStation.
