Gamers: Don't Bother Buying One Of Those Expensive '4K' TVs

Save your money if you want 4k only for gaming.


Games made for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are made for 1080p, so they'll still look the same on the new, expensive 4K sets coming out this year.

But even if game developers for these systems wanted to make higher-resolution content for these new screens, it turns out that it likely isn't even possible: the hardware in the newest consoles simply can't handle outputting such detail.

Everyone knows this and doubt even 1% of this board has the money to buy a $20,000 TV.

You don't understand then. That you can hurt someone so badly they never recover. That a person can, just by living, damage another human being beyond repair.

Even for PC's, you'll need 4 GTX Titans ($1K each) to play in 4k resolution.

This.

I've seen a few on here say they plan to get one, I just hope its not for gaming only or they wasted money. Just a friendly reminder.

Prices will come down, Vizio is coming out with a 50in for $1000 and I've seen some cheap brand that sells at $700 or something. I would still wait until there is more 4k content though.

Not even 1080p. 720p if you're lucky.

I could, but they're not that expensive. ...and I'm not that stupid. Even the Vizio 120" Ultra HD TV won't be anywhere near that much.
