4K Netflix is actually 15mbps + 3mbps HDR extension. It's comparable to 1080p blu-ray as h.265 is about twice as efficient as h.264, however that 15mbps includes sound on Netflix, on Blu-ray lossless sound can already take up 5.5 mbps. Blu-ray sustains up to 54 mbps all combined.
It's a big step up from 1080p netflix at h.264 5mbps including sound. Compating 4K blu-ray to Netflix (even their ultra quality at 10mbps) will blow everyone away. However a proper upscaled blu-ray is not that far off from a studio upscaled 4K UHD disc (made from a 2k master which most still are)
Looks like the thread got closed while I wasn't looking.
Not saying one is right or wrong.
But look at it MS point of view. Is it ok for Valve to bypass Windows 10 ( and MS altogether ) by having a Stembox which doesnt run Windows and Steam OS availabe for PC gamers? Valve have already been clear, they dont want to use Windows. So is it ok for Valve to monopolize the PC market ? But not ok for MS to try and use the exclusives to keep PC gamers on Windows?
There is a difference there. Valve still supports all other platforms. MS is blocking off even their own customers with windows 7 and 8. Plus there are many alternative ways to get games that come to Steam. There's not really such a thing as a Steam exclusive.
Anyway I'm not the biggest fan of Steam either. I do have a bunch of Steam games, yet all from sales. And their mod support is kinda nice. GoG.com is my preferred business model from a consumer perspective.
