What's the point of 4k resolution, the current consoles are 1080p capable which was a big deal when they launched but they barely have the power to run 720p, most games are sub-720p on consoles.

Unless you want the Xbox/PS4 to cost as much as a desktop computer capable of 4k resolution that is.....

Don't see why people are so hung up on 4k support. Not only would games not run at the resolution natively, but they'd look even worse scaled up to that resolution than current console games do scaled up to 1080p.

I don't know what any of those things are, so you're right, they won't have them. *

* OK, so I sort of know what they are. But they aren't important to 99% of Halo-gamerz out there.

it's not just about games. what about video content?

It pretty much is about games. As that's what you buy a gaming console for, games. If all you want is netflix and vudu and etc. you can get that for 1/3 the price.

From a typical viewing distance and TV screen size your eyes won't even notice the difference. So unless mister ACTIONpack has a 120-inch TV hanging in his home which he'll be watching less than 3 meters away it won't do him much good. I'm already talking substantially less than 4k here, more like 3k-ish.

I'd like to see Microsoft introduce a Windows/Windows Phone + XBox version of "AirPlay" (the iOS + AppleTV WiFi streamer for audio/video content).

DVDs lasted over a decade, Blu-ray isn't going anywhere, 4K TVs are going to take a good few years to be as mainstream and as cheap as 1080p TVs are at the moment.

Doesn't make sense to add another hundred or two to the cost of the console to support a niche.
