1440p? pffft..4320p is the only resolution worthwhile (sarcasm)...

(click to enlarge)

Just keep in mind that with UHD (Ultra High Def or 7680x4320) there are 16 times more pixels on screen than with 1080p.

 

Also there have been crazy PC gamers playing on 2560x1600 (aka 1600p) for a while now. The of course spend insane amounts of money to play at that resolution but its doable if high resolution is what gets you going =P


I want UHD now :)

But first, I preffer they start emiting in HD here

  maybe this television? http://www.trustedreviews.com/tvs/review/2007/04/16/Panasonic-TH-103PF9-103in-Plasma-TV/
 
While this size TV is definitely something that could benifit from higher resolutions, it's somewhat out of most people price and space range :P

End of 2008 predictions:
Nintendo WII 50 million PS3 30 million XBox 360 24 million



PS3 (and X360) can't run CoD4 over 640p @ 30fps... 1440p? AH-AH-AH, very funny :D



Caccaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa :P

I loved the fact that the first tests of UHD video to the Japanese public lead a huge number of the people in the test to suffer from motion sickness :D

Lets have some UHD porn already >_>

this resolution business is getting silly, SD is just fine

1440p... at 15 frames per second at most. Seriously, the PS3 is not THAT powerful.

 Well seeing that Super Stardust HD runs at 1080p60fps and Wardevil's RTE1080p engine runsa at the same, I don't see why the PS3 couldn't run a slightly larger resolution at 30fps?



Prediction (June 12th 2017)

Permanent pricedrop for both PS4 Slim and PS4 Pro in October.

PS4 Slim $249 (October 2017)

PS4 Pro $349 (October 2017)

This is one reason I'm passing up Blu-Ray and HD-DVD. Blu-Ray's fine if you've got a PS3, and yes, these movies do look better on 1080p TVs...but you're kidding yourself if you think 1080p will be the best TV resolution in 2 or 3 years.

Then we'll get "enhanced Blu-Rays" or "Blu-Ray 2.0" for the 2000p TVs or a resolution like that...and all the 1080p Blu-Rays won't be as good as they could be.

Meh.


That is absolutely ridiculous. People need to learn that just because a technology exists, that doesn't mean it will make it to mass market any time soon. It's just like all the people that say Blu-Ray will not take off because digital downloads will become dominant within a couple of years. It's bollocks.

Take Blu-Ray and HD-DVD as an example. The blue laser technology they incorporate has been around for decades, but only now is it slowly finding favour as a consumer product.

Resolutions above 1080p will not become an industry standard within the next decade because:

1.) Owners of TVs that support 1080 (or even 720) are still in a minority and will be for several years (globally).

2.) The broadcast standard will be 1080 max.

3.) The highest res supported by optical media will be 1080p.

4.) Current games consoles can only achieve 1080p in situations where there is very little going on on screen.

5.) TVs would cost a shitload more, and nobody with a TV <50" would be able to tell the difference anyway.

@ davygee

60fps is far more important for gaming than 1440p.

@ matte.lova

CoD4 runs at 60fps on both consoles. 



I think only people completely ignorant about video (like people saying 2560x1600 monitors exist for consumers at $1200) make these claims (that 1440p or higher are consumer-grade material in about 5 years).
I bet these people believe 720p and 1080p are numbers that were taken out of someone's *ss.
There are also all kind of different things thrown around and compared like they were the same. I've seen at least these things compared and mixed here : max source resolution available, max input resolution, actual display resolution (involving pitch in the case of a cathodic monitor, but noone mentioned pitch, so all the comments about these monitors are plain wrong).
No wonder it's impossible for anyone to agree on anything in this thread, and that it's a pain to read, with all the misinformation and nonsense that's gathered there.
But I agree with Played_out.

 your image is off as 4k+ and 5k+ resolutions should be where the Ultra High-Def Videa is, 1440p/2160p/2540p are all super HD levels.
