What does all that means? Well, first, you don´t have a 4K BD drive, meaning you can´t play 4K movies if you wanted. Second, you can´t play physical discs 4K games, what this console does is upscaling to 4K, enhancing the graphics. There are only a few selected games that can be played in native 4K, but you must download them.
