Skip to 5 minutes for the game to start.

PS. it's not even a minute long segment, then it goes to FIFA -_- Waste of time.

You won't be playing at native 4k resolutions on consoles. Except maybe on simple indie titles.

I doubt many people will be playing native 4k even on their gaming rigs, not many people own a 4k monitor.

There just isn't a point to 4K gaming... or 4K at all for that matter. Unlike phones or even computer monitors, you dont sit 2 feet from a 40 or 50" tv and therefore the naked eye just doesn't sense the added resolution. I have a macbook pro retina and playing diablo III at 2880x1800 honestly isn't noticeable unless you really put your face to your screen. The added resolution from 4K just isn't the same necessary leap that HD was and in the end will only drain performance compared to 1080p.

Ya I dont see the need for 4k resolution either unless you have like a 100" TV and your sitting yards away. The performance drain will probably be incredible as well lowering even the best gfx cards to a 20-30 fps cap off in max settings.

That's what I thought too, but 1080 and 4k is like the difference between iphone original screen and Retina screen.

Everyone said we don't care about iphone screen resolution but now they can't look back.

Don't sit 2 feet away from your 42" TV? Speak for yourself!

Those 4K looks awesome in my 1380x768 monitor.

These videos are useless unless you are running a 4k monitor/TV. This 4k game looks great coming off his non 4k camera? To my 1080p Tv.

I would love to see that high of a resolution in person.

above 1080p is HIGHLY noticeable, much more so in games than movies. 1440p looks way better than 1080p, let alone how much better 1600p looks.

pixel density, removal of all aliasing artifacts, everything is much, MUCH more crisp at 1600p vs 1080p

there is really no comparison
2560x1600 is almost a full generational jump over 1920x1080
the difference is amazing!

I have not played any pc games in 4k yet, but, as I am a sucker for new tech, I'm sure I'll have a 4k screen in the next 3 years (when I can grab one for $1000) and will be playing my pc games in 4k like I play them in 2560x1600 now

and trust me, 1600p absolutely DESTROYS 1080p in image quality

I think this is just like the 3D fad. Sony is just trying to sell new tv's that is all. If you have a great LED tv thats 1080P with a high contrast ratio forget about this stuff. I have a 3D tv now and there is like no support for it. Only a a hand full of movies do it at all.

Listen, I'm the first to say 4k gaming is a long ways off, but 4k TVs aren't going to be a fad.

Even if there was no visual difference, people will always buy "more". Just think of all the useless crap people buy all the time.

Its by no means, right around the corner, but it will eventually come. For games its very doubtful. Next gen won't use 4k for the most part(if at all) and with out them there won't be anything to really drive the market to it.
