Superfluous, and no doubt costs a small fortune. All to showcase a mediocre game to boot.  I guess I'm the type who isn't impressed by running a game at 4 k, I would rather the title itself be amazing gameplay wise.

The laptop probably costs $4K

i can't wait when games render in 4k not just the resolution.

Those 18 inch notebooks and the huge power brick they come with are way too big and heavy to be practical and portable. It isn't even healthy to carry that much weight around on your back without having a back pack that has a frame and a belt like they use in the military.

Wow that 4K TV really looks great in 720p on my laptop.

4K sucks... I will have to be too close to the screen to see the difference against Full HD... 4K is only for eagles..

PC gamers are rich enough to purchase anything expensive if it is all about massive graphics formats like 4k.

@Jedi4ce28 The game is being used to showcase the technology. Like the guy in the video said, all this stuff is available now, so you can look up the price and it is pretty expensive, but nothing too ridiculous. 


I agree about amazing gameplay, but I would rather have both amazing gameplay + amazing visuals.

@adirodeth Lol...it's for the fuuuture! This tech is for GIANT TVs. And 4K definitely doesn't suck. Digital cameras have had resolutions much higher than that for awhile now. It's a noticeable difference, but it does depend on screen size and distance. 


Soon enough we'll have entire walls covered in pixels and 4K+ will be a necessity.

@3dmatrixgamer I have been gaming for some 10 years with PC's and in that time i have had 3 PC's (build my first PC just a week ago which is now my 4th PC) which all were at price point from 500 to 600€ (prebuild PC's) so it is not really that expensive.

@Oldgun About the same. The 18s start at about £1200. I've built one at top top end for £5000 before. That is the ones with dual cards and 64GB of RAM that you would need for 4K at 60fps, if you can get 60fps at all, I'm not even sure. I don't think he mentioned the frame rate it was running at did he?

@smoker1993 4th PC in 10 years. At 500-600 Euros each? So that is between 2000 and 2400? That is nearly a new 360 every year. That isn't expensive to you?

@smoker1993 Why would you exclude that one though? If you only bought it last week it counts as in the last ten years.

Yeah Steam is cheap but man I get such hand cramp from using a keyboard. Especially when you have to sprint using left shift. The amount of time I miss or my fingers just refuse to move because my arm has seized up. Generally unless a game is controller compatible it is less appealing to me. Or the controls are simple enough to map onto a controller using Xpadder or something.

@Dannystaples14 @smoker1993 That is 1600 in 10 years excluding my latest build which i could afford because i have been working now for a few months.

Anyway that is 13.33€ a month for imho far more pleasant gaming experience then i could have had with consoles.

+it kinda pays it self considering the games and their cost.

I'm not too proud but not ashamed to admit that as a young boy with no income and parents that never understood why i would need a new game when i just got my last game some 1.5 years ago. 

piracy was my solution.


But now with more income i have completely stopped those practices.



So anyway my point is that for me (my parents) my 10 years of gaming costs costt the amount of those PC's and the electricity and internet bill.


But of course i would not pirate anything anymore and would not allow my children to pirate games when/if i have some. i would buy the games for my children.
