Everyone is crying that the next gen of consoles is disappointing in the jump in graphics, and that we're suffering from diminished returns, etc etc.
I think 4K gaming will be the next breakthrough.
If you look in the past, there was the jump from 2D to 3D, then the jump to HD (720p)
I think the jump to 4K will be remembered along those lines
For example: 720p = .9 megapixels. 1080p = 2.1 megapixels. 4K = 8.3 megapixels. So clarity only doubled from 720p to 1080p. Going from 1080 to 4K you're looking at quadrupling the picture quality. Games will probably be 100GBs+, and we will probably at long last enter the uncanny valley of photorealism where the screen starts to look like a window into another world instead of something displaying a image. The future is gaming on 70"+ 4K TVs
So how far are we from 4K?
If PS5 comes in 5-6 years, will it be strong enough to render games at 4K and 60fps?
