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.
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.
60fps is far more important for gaming than 1440p.
CoD4 runs at 60fps on both consoles.
