4k hear we go again .Eeventhou they are quite cheap now there is VAST amount of world's population that don't have one.Even TV providers like Sky and Virgin only offer a small amount of 4k programs although at a hight price, Freest, Freeview ect have none.Most tv ones don't even broadcast in 1080p.It's going to be Quite sone time for mass market has 4k ,let alone HDR ,and even longer for normal channels to have this.720p 60fps on 40 inch tv is absolutely fine.If you've got 50 inch or above 1080p 60fps is needed if fussy.4k home consoles is not important or needed wright now and unless your hardcore tv buff or what very best of best looking picture on your games most people don't care.
@ollyander Which one, my first one? Thanks, but it's a sentiment I've often expressed around here. And it's not just a way to defend Nintendo - it's more a matter of getting one's priorities straight.I could play, or should I say try, a hyper-realistic Mario game that needs momentum for jumping, features enemies that bleed, boasts the Havok engine, is played in first-person, punches the player in the face with the obligatory angsty twist halfway through the game, needs the player to find mushrooms to keep Mario's insides inside him, and so on... or I could play a 30fps, real Mario game in standard definition and just have fun.I've seen other takes on the platforming genre, and as good as Mirror's Edge admittedly is, I'd never play it if I had to choose between it and a good old Mario game.Am I a fanboy? Unquestionably so. Do I defend everything Nintendo does? Not in a million years. Point is, graphical upgrades and whatnot are always welcome, as long as we don't start perceiving them as needed. People created works of art even without the tech we have today. Final Fantasy VI featured an actual opera. Donkey Kong Country dared us to find a difference between it and a polygonal PS1 game. The list goes on. I welcome change, but I'm not obsessed in the slightest with it. I want a new Nintendo system because it's gonna have a new Mario, not because I could count his facial hair. I don't give any fecal matter about the realism or lack thereof, I just want a good game. Anyone wants to discuss a new console that does this and that? Fine. Can I have a fight between Mario and Sonic on it? No? Then leave me alone and enjoy your photorealistic visuals (I'm not talking to you, I'm being hypothetical) while I enjoy a game. Show me a game I like on your system and we'll talk. I have an Xbox One because I like, say, Unravel, not because the yarn looks life-like on it.It's saddening. It truly is. So many people are willing to place lots of money on a console because of its power at the expense of what makes a good game. On PlayStation 4 you can buy the original Crash Bandicoot and Spyro games on PlayStation Store (I guess; I don't know if something as simple as that has been screwed up in the switch between PS3 and PS4), while Xbox One owners have the privilege of being able to play classic Rare games on it. But what about new platformers? Of course, the point isn't about platformers alone, but this genre is very emblematic when it comes to the state of the gaming industry today.Pictured: Rare's way of letting us know how Nuts & Bolts came to be - namely, today's industry cares little about platformers, hence a driving game disguised as an entry in a platforming franchise because Microsoft didn't believe in an actual BK game selling. 781b155fdc
