They want you to eventually buy a 200" TVmaybe I am just getting old, but can anyone tell me why 8k would be something I'd want in a console/tv set? the eye already has problems resolving 4k resolutions... why would anyone want 8k? is there more to it, then a marketing "the number is bigger so it must be better" ploy? especially as an ex vj/projection artist the hype completely eludes me.
is it because 8k wil be actually 4k in the traditional sense (since 4k is only 2k really...)?
The PS3 was the perfect console in my mind, and I was expecting it to become my second console ever (after the Game Gear) !! But then it came to the stores and I realized that what I was expecting was indeed a dream... I'm still waiting for that perfect console...
I had to giggle at this. For several minutes.Wow, PowerGod. For someone whose only console was a Game Gear, your standards are pretty high.
Unfortunately, if nothing's caught your eye yet, I don't think anything will. They just don't make 'em like they used to.
Just look at PS5 and all its features. Thing probably eats ten AA batteries an hour. And people complained about Game Gear. Ha!
Yeah, although the 'cancer' comment was from a different age, when windows server was looking to be supplanted by linux server, and potentially KDE or gnome was making a push for the desktop too. The battle for server OS has been mainly lost except for a few (mostly intranet) niches where MS services are still a thing, meanwhile desktop linux installers are still too scary for most people (for whom installing windows would probably scare them too, but their machines come with windows preinstalled, so that's no problem).There's something I find really disturbing about Microsoft's befriending of their previous 'enemies'. Linux used to be "a cancer" to them, but now the claim to love it. They've also clearly been vexed at Sony's reclaimed dominance of the console market.
Yeah, I've already said once gaming goes all digital, I'M OUT! Now that's not saying I don't buy an occasional digital only title hear and there, but it's the minority compared to my majority of physical buys. While I do have a decent connection, so streaming wouldn't be the end of the world, it would cut in to my data each month, which I'm not looking to pay for. I've had a good run, and if I stopped buying games/systems tomorrow, I probably have a backlog to last me for 2-3 more lifetimes, so no shortage of games to play. I don't even own an NS, PS4 or ONE, and the next gen is around the corner, and I'm OK just playing my 360, PS3, 3DS, Vita and retro gaming from here on out if need be, as I'm just not the interested in the new future of gaming.I'm worried though. With Sony and Microsoft apparently taking Google Stadia seriously enough to team up against it, streaming really could be the future of gaming. And if that happens, I won't have a good enough connection to stay gaming. My only option left will be something like Dragonbox Pyra... Well, that wouldn't be too bad, I suppose.
Ha ha ha... Trolling Jumpman? He's too cool for that, and you know that!Day 1 purchase!
