If I could see HDR Id be more inclined to like the direction the power twins are going.

But because of how it works, where more shades of colour are defined (Millions more in fact) it creates more instances for overlap with colours I can and cant see, which means objects that on a standard TV would be easy to differentiate, are a mess in 4K. Heck, even at 1080 with stabdard colour its not easy.

Hell, I can barely define level geometry and objects in orevious Call of Duty titles. Imagine that in 4k? Or 8k? No thanks.

So Id like Sony to go portable at some point, or stop endlessly chasing specs, as 8K TVs are going to be huge and real living room space wont be that great.

Id like companies to tap into that everywhere on the go market that other media nabbed so fast. Or at least acknowledge that already the power twins are doing so much with graphics that its actively preventing people like myself from enjoying a lot of titles.

@BLP_Software There's a noticeable difference between 1080p and 4K, so I can understand the push for 4K. 8K though? That's still years away, and may or may not even happen. Unless TVs get marginally bigger, I think the difference between 4K and 8K will be hardly noticeable.

The next steps in gaming will be level of detail and AI I think. With 1080p phones and 4K screens, we've pretty much hit the limit in terms of resolution.

Two reasons why I don't think 8K will be anywhere near as big as 4K. Not even going into anything about how big the screens would have to be. Older movies. When BluRay became a thing it was super easy to do re-releases of old movies in HD. Purely because 35mm is fairly close to something you'd call "6K" and digital cameras for cinema have been 4K since about when digital was getting taken up. So 1080p was easy. With 4K? Same deal. Very easy to do releases at 4K because just about everything you'd want to release has been shot at 4K. Releasing it at 4K is actually fairly close to what was actually recorded.

But 8K? Not much has been shot at 8K. Some stuff has been shot at 6K but not much beyond that. And usually what you'd want is them to use that extra bit of resolution in editing anyways. So even if/when 8K sets become possible for the consumer there won't be much content to even theoretically take advantage of it. Even less than there was for 1080p and 4K. Because for previous resolution jumps there was a whole bunch of content sitting there just waiting to be released at a higher resolution. The same will not be true for 8K.

@subpopz I've seen them for less than €1000. I've eveb seen smaller models for around €600. They're not that expensive anymore.

@subpopz Mine isn't that big though. But my point was that you can find them a lot cheaper than €5000, even the large models.

Well as it stands if you walk into a shop there aren't many decent sized sets that aren't 4K. At least not any that are significantly cheaper than ones that are 4K. If you're buying a 32-40" set then sure, very easy to get a cheaper set that's only 1080p. Once you hit ~50" or so? You're choosing between a 4K Samsung 50" set and a HD Sony 55" set at the exact same price. 1080p and a bit bigger or 4K with HDR and a bit smaller? I'd go for 4K.

Very hard not to buy a 4K set if you're shopping around for a TV unless it's a small set.
