I live near one of the theatres in Thousand Oaks, Ca. But unfortunately all ticket were sold out by the time I found out.

Wild man wild. How could you go back to a 40' tv after that.

It's actually easier then you think. Projectors don't give you the illumination that flat panels do. I have a 1080p projector and a 10' screen combo but I do most of my gaming on a 52" flat panel and sometimes a 32".

The only time I use my projector for gaming is when my friends come over and they want to experience playing on a screen that big. No matter what screen material you use projectors are darker than back lit flat panels. You will miss that illumination especially when you are playing shooters.

I also have a HD 230inch projector setup and a 46" 1080p LCD flatscreen however the LCD flatscreen is best for maximum clarity, contrast and brightness. Basically the best looking picture. However the projector setup can make a game more movie like due to the size of the screen. At the end of the day, I play more on the 46" LCD and on the projecter for 2nd plays of heavy action games to get the more 'immersed' experience.

Guys, we are talking about a high end 4k projector in a cinema environment (= absolute dark room). Guess that'll leave an impression. No doubt about it.

Boody-Bandit4368d ago (Edited 4368d ago )

If that is the case I would definitely want to see that display.
I wonder if they are going to upscale the 720p or 1080p source to take advantage of that 2160p display? Hopefully we will see some videos of this soon.

cyborg69714368d ago

Yea a backlight is nice for flatpanels but this is a 4k pj do you ever go to a movie and yell turn up the contrast? I don't think so. Those pj's will blow yours away. So it would be nothing like what 10' screen you have.

It can only do everything! Weird that the closest competitor cant...

cryymoar4368d ago

I was just thinking, here we have Sony doing all these great things:
3D gaming
wireless electricity for TVs and consoles

and Microsoft, the richest corporation in the world isn't even doing half of those.
(Well at least they havent talked about them yet. I'm sure they have SOME R&D on each technology, but i'm sure Sony is ahead overall.)


To get the optimal quality from a projector you have to use it in a really dark room. My friend have his HT setup in a room like this, the windows and door, when closed, don't let a minimun bean of light pass, he's so neurotic about it that he cover each and every electronic with status LEDs in black cloth.

It......... Only......... Does......... Everything.

That seems to be right....only good for watching movies.

God, are you really this dumb?

Bumpmapping4368d ago

The lack of games on 360 is really getting too you....

mrv3214368d ago

If the PS3 plays movies then that does more than my 360 unless the DVD IS 101 JET noises.

He isn't a fanboy, he's just doing this for fun... teasing us, if someone is this stupid I may just support Nazism.
