How close do you sit to your HDTV when playing your PS3?

I usually sit like 4-5 feet away but I know of people that sit like 10-12 feet away and I'm like how the hell can you read the tiny font and text.

so this got my curious and I'm wondering how close all you other ps3 owners site close to your hdtv when gaming.

>implying big hdtv's don't exist

I sit about 10-12 feet away from my TV and I can see just fine.

The tv is 3 meters away from my bed, where I sit/laydown on and play. So 3 meters! Whatever that is in feet :)

I wish I could sit further back to really get the best effect out of the HD visuals as being closer is not giving you the best quality.

I sit 4 or 5 feet away but I'd prefer to be 7 feet away to get sharpest clarity. I have a 42 inch which is actually like 41.6 inches or something like that.

The bigger the tv the further away you should be.

Most people sit too far from their HDTVs to see all of the detail.

I sit 8 feet from my 61" TV.
