Microsoft Finally Admits to Xbox 720

86 posts in this topic

If they actually name it Xbox 720 I'm done with Microsoft.

I don't care how MS names it. As long as it doesn't RRoD and the HDMI port doesn't stop working for no reason.

this obsession with what it's going to be called is beginning to disturb me...it'll be an Xbox something, that much we know. as long as they launch the damn thing already.

and mig, 2560 x 1440 panels are going to be the norm within a year. people like you were talking like that about 1080p in 2009...what is it with you "it'll never catch on" people?

the new consoles will run at least some games in QHD or even higher, like 1600p. you can count on that.

I hope your kidding and don't actually find pixels sexy, I weep for you if you do.

If you think about it, even images of real people are just pixels.

There's no reason to buy a 1440P TV if you already have a 1080P TV. There's no reason to buy higher than 1080P if you don't already have one with BluRay movies only being 1080P and hardly any games even running 1080P native.

That's like saying there was no reason to buy an HDTV before Blu-Ray or HD broadcasts were widespread. Some people like to 'future-proof' their technology against changes a few years in advance.

I find sexy pixels sexy.

The more realistic looking and jiggily the better. It needs to be a damn prerequisite to have perfect physics / texture on boobies. Better start weeping.

The difference is that when HDTVs came to market, you could get HD broadcasts.

AFAIK, there aren't any immediate plans have anything higher than 1080p being broadcast, making your new panel pretty much no different than before. There aren't many cameras on the market that shoot higher than 1080p, and those that do are pretty dang expensive. A decent amount of TV shows have actually been shot using digital SLRs like the Canon 5D and 7D due to the price point. Both of which max at 1080p

Hell, some stations are still on 720p

I'd rather have 720p as opposed to 1080i actually. 1080i tends to have a bit more blur due to the interlacing.

Now just to bring up something. Broadcast of HDTV in the US (not sure about the rest of the world) started in the 2002-2003 timeframe depending upon the service provider. Earlier broadcasts that happened in the 90's were saved for special events only, like the Superbowl and such.

HDTV's themselves became commercially available in 1998, 4-5 years before providers were actually sending the signal for more than just those special broadcasts to homes.

So it's actually not that uncommon for the sets to be 4-5 years ahead of broadcast standards, or newer digital media that can take advantage of the resolution.

Some do. Most prefer to wait for the price to come down.

there were also no plans to have electricity or penicilin back in the 17th century. that's basically the point some people here are making, with all due respect, that's just dumb.
