Forget 1080p and 4k, heres proof.

The resolution of our eyes is 12 vertical lines per arc angle (one line per arcminute for 20/20 acuity) times 2. Now 28 degrees x 12 lines x 2 = 672. This means we really can't see a display component (pixel) smaller than 1/672 x image width. Our minimum resolvable element size is about 0.065", or about twice the size of the pixels of the WXGA image! Put bluntly, from 8 feet away while watching a 50 inch plasma TV, the human eye is generally incapable of reliably distinguishing any detail finer than that shown on a true 720p display!

Wow, just wow. Reassurance much?

I sit 14' from a 120" screen and I can CLEARLY tell the difference between 720 and 1080p - it's like night and day.

Aside from this being incorrect, it seems like everything you said is based on the assumption of 20/20 vision. People can actually have better than 20/20.

I can tell the between 720p and 1080p in movies and television shows, but not video games.

Does that count?

Can't believe gamers want consoles to be a one system party.
