    Some race games can use 3 screens. Maybe 8k can be a screen around your peripheral (top and bottom too). a VR implementation. Maybe finally you can play 2 players each with one screen on one console?

    They want you to eventually buy a 200" TV :)

    Actually, since you mention it, VR could probably make us of faster than 60fps. I don't have any kind of VR headset though, so that's not any reason for me to really care.

    Resolution increase is usefull for big screens (and VR since it's pretty much the biggest possible screen taking your whole field of vision).
    For example on my projector, the increase from 720p to 1080p is extremely noticeable. When I watch my camera stills on the big 1080p screen I really wish I had more resolution.

    On a typical big TV at typical viewing distances, I couldn't care less indeed.

    Well, if it wasn't clear, my comparison is more with the PC, that is still way superior to the console out there, with the exception maybe of the portable ones. Those are a different category, because it's not just a matter of power, but also a matter of form-factor, size, and in this case, also batteries :p

    Good news for Sony: Slightly Mad Studios was developing a console with major specs to rival Sony and Microsoft, but now they say the future of the project is in question, because the announcement of Google Stadia caused two of their investors to pull out.

    Some people think they're lying and that the project was dead anyway, but I say, wouldn't people insane enough to invest in Slightly Mad's console also be insane enough to take Google Stadia seriously? Seems legit to me.

    Hey, did you guys hear about Sony teaming up with Microsoft for cloud gaming? PlayStation Xbox (possibly) confirmed.

    Also, this partnership means we're one step closer to OmniCorp now, which also brings us one step closer to RoboCop. Yay oligarchy.

    Hmm... think I'll may stick to retro gaming, homebrew and Nintendo. At least I'm hoping that PS5 will support physical media; hopefully it will still support DVDs as I was a little irked that they dropped CD support from the PS4...

    I'm worried though. With Sony and Microsoft apparently taking Google Stadia seriously enough to team up against it, streaming really could be the future of gaming. And if that happens, I won't have a good enough connection to stay gaming. My only option left will be something like Dragonbox Pyra... Well, that wouldn't be too bad, I suppose.

    There's something I find really disturbing about Microsoft's befriending of their previous 'enemies'. Linux used to be "a cancer" to them, but now the claim to love it. They've also clearly been vexed at Sony's reclaimed dominance of the console market.

    It's clear they believe that gaming is an important lucrative market, and Google could actually pose a threat longer term.

    I'm concerned for Sony (at least the Sony I remember from the PS1 and PS2 days), but also gaming in general. It's all about "services" , online and streaming. I can see advertising becoming a more common medium for placed advertising and certainly personality / preference tracking in games, moreso than probably even Facebook (Windows 10 is full of it).

    By the way, thanks @JDTAY, I hadn't heard about the partnership.

    I also agree. Pyra could be my next first choice for console gaming :)

    @JDTAY

    Indeed, exciting times ahead of us. Thanks, btw. I'm now gonna go and post this bit of news in my Google Stadia thread/topic.

    Yeah, although the 'cancer' comment was from a different age, when windows server was looking to be supplanted by linux server, and potentially KDE or gnome was making a push for the desktop too. The battle for server OS has been mainly lost except for a few (mostly intranet) niches where MS services are still a thing, meanwhile desktop linux installers are still too scary for most people (for whom installing windows would probably scare them too, but their machines come with windows preinstalled, so that's no problem).

    I did wonder if they'd gone back to their old strategy of embrace, extend, extinguish but so far at least they've been playing fairly nice with running real linux kernels on windows. Of course, these days they've forfeited their Windows income by making it buy once, upgrade forever, which of course asks where they're getting their OS income from these days, and the answer is probably telemetrics.

    Yeah, I've already said once gaming goes all digital, I'M OUT! Now that's not saying I don't buy an occasional digital only title hear and there, but it's the minority compared to my majority of physical buys. While I do have a decent connection, so streaming wouldn't be the end of the world, it would cut in to my data each month, which I'm not looking to pay for. I've had a good run, and if I stopped buying games/systems tomorrow, I probably have a backlog to last me for 2-3 more lifetimes, so no shortage of games to play. I don't even own an NS, PS4 or ONE, and the next gen is around the corner, and I'm OK just playing my 360, PS3, 3DS, Vita and retro gaming from here on out if need be, as I'm just not the interested in the new future of gaming.

    Ha ha ha... Trolling Jumpman? He's too cool for that, and you know that!
    Otoh, my coax cable streamed video to my TV in the past, so who knows.
    And I've seen people on TV play Hugo through their phone.
    And some played MUDD through dialup... that was streaming too, right?

    *Grandma, hang up the phone, I'm using it now!* translated to Streaming is: Son/Wife/Uncle, stop watching Justing Beaver/Joga Videos/Torrenting right now, I need the bandwidth to get at least 10 fps! Stupid net neutrality... lowers my FPS...
