4K resolution? Seems far fetched in games, checkout benchmarks for the rumored hardware. The graphics chipset couldn't handle it well. So just means 4K movie supports, IMO
IGN claim they may have the spec sheet:

Kotaku reports a source.tells them no backwards compatibility. Games will be console locked. Not that Im that surprised. Too much money to be made on remakes
From the article:
THE NEXT PLAYSTATION, AT A GLANCE
IS CALLED, OR AT LEAST CARRIES THE WORKING CODENAME, "ORBIS".
IS SCHEDULED FOR A HOLIDAY 2013 RELEASE.
WON'T BE BACKWARDS COMPATIBLE WITH PS3 GAMES.
WILL LOCK NEW GAMES TO A PSN ACCOUNT AS AN ANTI-USED GAMES MEASURE.
NEW GAMES CAN BE BOUGHT EITHER ON BLU-RAY OR DOWNLOADED.
CURRENT SPECS ARE AN AMD X64 CPU AND AMD SOUTHERN ISLANDS GPU
