Someone please tell me why anyone would need a 4K HDTV in their homes? At 50 inch diagonal, 1080p pixels begin to become noticeable at 7 feet away. Any further, and it begins to blend in with the lower resolutions. Throw in a 50 inch display running 1440p, and you only start noticing the pixels at 5 feet. 4K at 16:9 is 2250p. Unless you're playing the game right up the screen (or you're some fancy rich man who has a really big house), then there's no sense to have anything over 1080p.

4K is something a cinema would use.


Why even bother using 1080P with your logic? If you sit 10' from a 50" TV, you'll never notice the difference between 1080P and 720P

and 10' from the TV would but about what the distance would be for that size TV

Hell, let's just use 480P and sit 12' away


Why bother with 4k when 8k tvs are already in the works and will probably be available before 4k tvs become readily affordable?

It's too early.
-Lack of 4k TVs.
-Lack of storage medium capable of holding 4k content.
-Increasing the resolution will take away power that could be spent on superior graphics.


>Nintendo game
>Superior graphics

Choose one buddy.


I never said the games with superior graphics had to be made by Nintendo.

Yeah, nintendo never revolutionized the gaming scene. Except with every product they ever made. The Wii came out, Sony and MS laughed at them.

Half a year later they came out with their own ripoffs.

4k won't be happening. The GPU power required is to high to make games viable at that res right now. I mean 2k requires you have a top end card with lots of vram just to run games smoothly at decent detail settings nvm 4k. Anyone expecting the next gen stuff to run games at native 4k is living in a pipe dream wonderland with unicorns and ponies. Perhaps one of the machines will support 4k video support like the PS4 supported blu-ray 1080p but beyond that it's not going to happen. Unless they intend to load these consoles up with future tech and sell them for a colossal loss, expect native 1080p at 30fps not 4k.

That's not new tech....they took existing ideas and applied them to gaming.

Damn, still if you cut that 160 GB in half, around 80 GB for games would be insane. No developer would want to put that much work into a game unless it sold very well...

will the wii u support it in the future? The next gen has started with wii u but the pc is already a gen ahead read this http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-vs-4k-gaming.


Holy ****ing god. Are gamers amnesiacs or something? This has been the case literally (And I do mean literally) for forever, yet people still post **** like this every generation as if they expected a bloody console to be ahead of the PC market.

4k tv's are going to be very expensive for a while. also most people probably don't realize it but live tv is techinically just streaming data using a different medium. most cable and satellite companies don't have the bandwidth for full 1080p...........they sure as heck don't have it for 4k. you may see mainstream adoption start in about 4-5 years as prices come down and infrastructure is built up. but it won't be the standard until after the next gen consoles have their run. in otherwords 2 more generations yet before you start seeing something that will use 4k.
