wow dude slow down there, dont let those "peasants" get to ya.
But really your not saying anything new, and the reason why most games ran at 720 is again simple because the people and companies who made the games
did not think it was worth there time to make them run at 1080p. Even on the new systems that seems to be true, game developers just are to lazy to
do that, and not because they cant or because of hardware limitations. I mean there are games that run at 1080p on the ps3 and look real good, but in
the end it was all just because they wanted it to run at that, and put the effort in to make the game run at that. In the end however most people
would not even notice a difference or care.
And steam while cool, is not as good as the ps network or the x-box network, it just isn't. I dont know what they are thinking but I think they will
pull out with there plans on making a steambox or whatever, they just cant compete, there is really nothing they can do short of making a system that
has more power and hardware functionality then both the ps4 or the x-box one. And sorry to say, I dont even see them doing that because frankly they
would go bankrupt trying to go against the big boys, and who would want to buy a console which you would have to upgrade in a year or so, that's not
an improvement that is just not thinking on there part and you may as well buy a PC. And while you say you can get a better PC or graphic card then
the ones that are in the PS4 for your computer.
You got to think that while that technically may be true. Its also a bunch of bull#, as for the price and all that it comes with there is not way you
can get that on a PC, and not only that everything is integrated from the start, from the PS4 controller with its motion sensor and touchscreen
capabilities, to the face recognition software and hardware that comes with the x-box one, not to mention a bunch of other little details, such as
the free to play online network that the ps4 has and all the nifty little add-on's which come with the systems.
PC for game do not even have unified memory, which is a big drawback, and no. While you can buy a better graphic card then the one in the PS4 or the
x-box, its not the same thing by a long shot, those chips were designed with one purpose in mind, to make everything more streamlined and more
efficient, while pc graphic cards are just general purpose powerhouses which go out of style in a year or two. And it would cost about as much as the
whole system just for that alone, much less all the other things that come in box.
And there is no way games on the PC can run on 4k. You know why? Because there are currently no games that run on that, even movies which supposedly
are 4k are just "retouched" to make them appear 4k, in fact to make any game now a days run at 4k it will not only have to be remade to add in the
extra detail, but would be twice or 5 times as massive as if it were running at 1080p. Which is why you will not see many games run at that in even
in the future its just not worth it for developers and game makers to put in that much effort for little payback, most especially when most casual
gamers wont even notice it.
