After recently revealing their new 84″ 4K TV Sony has finally put it up for pre-order. For a measly $24,000 you can be one of the first to own the XBR-84X900, Sony will even install the TV for FREE. Obviously being a bleeding edge product I imagine demand won’t be very high but in a couple years I’m sure the price will come down considerably as 4K becomes the mainstream standard. Let’s not forget that this TV is 84″ and most current TV’s top out at 60″ to keep the prices down. Sony also announced a 4K Blu-ray player to go along with this TV and rumor has it that the next PlayStation will be 4K compatible. Currently though there are no providers supporting 4K HDTV let alone 1080p and I don’t see that changing any time soon so it will probably be a good couple years before we’re gaming on a 4K set.
