The consoles should eventually support 4k video, they are capable after all.
4k video is really not that special it really does increase the detail of the picture(too much detail on ppl faces for my taste)but the upgrade is really worth it nonetheless.
The people who say there is not difference between 1080p and 4k,or that you need gigantic screen to notice the difference either have no idea what they're saying, have not experience enough 4k content; if any, or have really bad eye sight, since I can notice it no matter what distance I'm watching from.
4k video is a nice upgrade and all, but it doesn't compare to 4k gaming.Gaming at 4k increases the detail a LOT,everything stands out on the screen, and even the colors are more vibrant.Anyways just like anything else you get used to it and it kind of loses its "wow effect."
Or they have science and facts on their side. This is my post from earlier. That diagram is based off of someone with 20/20 vision. Maybe you just had a really crappy HDTV, so the 4k TV looks awesome in comparison.
Also, I'm pretty sure that 4k has nothing to do with colors being more vibrant.
Yeah well I do admit the benefits start to diminish at a certain distance, but not everyone will see the image the same way.A group of people could have the same level of vision, but not everyone is going to have the same perception.Some of the people in that group might be able to notice the difference by focusing their view into specific details that see a greater benefit from the higher resolution.While the ppl that didn't see the difference from the higher resolution focused their view into something else that didn't see much benefit,thus were unable to see it.
Bolded: I doubt anyone with a 4k capable gaming PC would have a crappy tv, I for instance upgrade at least 1 of my tvs to the newer model every year.
About the last part yeah, i don't think higher resolution affects color, maybe the extra clarity "enhanced" the game's textures and made them look more vibrant, I don't know.
