This gen can be easily skipped w/ a decent 800 - 1000 bucks PC, most people excuses are that PC are too expensive but they don't realize a PC it's not just for gaming, a PC you build yourself would cost you an arm and a leg from HP and what if you didn't want liquid cooling, I can build a 1500 dollar PC using a i7 3770K which can be overclocked and a GTX 780, that's like 3 times more powerful than the PS4, LOL and for some reason Nvidia is trying to get me onboard with their updates lately LOL, if Nvidia drop their prices that would be it for consoles, I'm still going to buy aPS4 if they don't screw everything up like MS just because of the exclusive games, the new controller touchpad and also because I have a feeling PS4 may be able to support gameplay at 4K resolution in the future but not for every game, hopefully by the year 2017 4K TVs are affordable like HD TVs are now.
Why am I gonna spend 1500 just to play video games
Becuase they will be in 4K and 4K monitors will be much cheaper then 4K TV, better grahpics, mods and since you can not buy or use used games with next gen anyway 1500 would be a nice slap in the face. $1500 is high end you can do with a $600-800 build it yourself PC.
4K still requires A LOT of processing, which means you're likely not going to get a smooth framerate on a game at maxxed settings....
Even the GTX Titan in 2-way SLI can barely get a steady 30fps at 4k resolutions on Crysis 3 at Ultra settings with filters enabled.
4K resolution also, does not directly correlate to "better graphics" simple because you're limited by the GPU.
You're NEVER going to see any benefit of 4K on a small screen that is less than 40", with the average PC monitor being 26" or so....
My roomate has a dedicated 4K monitor for the video she edits..... I played BioShock Infinite on it.... and on my own PC rig and theres ZERO difference.
The only thing you'll pick up is a slightly expanded field of view.
Fact is, unless your eyes are glued to the screen, there is no need for a small 4K screen. When your screen is at least 60", then you'll get the benefit of a 4K screen.
When you run higher resolutions, you use A LOT more of your GPU and system RAM for texture memory which doesn't leave a whole lot for other processes that the GPU and CPU will need to do, so thats why you have to scarifice graphical detail and quality for processing power the higher the resolution you go.
GTX Titan SLI by which manufacturer also pc is as strong as its weakest component, how much RAM at what mhz, PSU is watt wattage ,CPU is what model I need a little more info on your real experience with this.

Thanks Saviorsixtysix for the sig
unless sony tanks at e3 here soon they will win this round of the console war. im not saying this merely because of the negative feedback that came with the reveal of the new xbox. theres so much confusion already thats came with the new xbox that its disconcerting to alot of the gaming community. dont know if youve read up on all the **bleep** the governments been caught doing with verizon and phone calls but a main mass is very concerned about the 24 hour thing and some of the spying that may come with it. im not trying to jump the gun here but with everything thats known so far microsoft has dug themselves a hell of hole that wont be easy to dig themselves out of.
This is why I don't game on the pc. Yall don't sound like you go outside much. When I want to game I just want to stick it in and play. None of this cpu ram BS
It is not as complicated as it sounds. Just a ton of acronyms. The problem is when people argue about specs. You will get one person that knows specs (Grey, for instance) and then get a bunch of people spouting nonsense which just confuses the general populace further.
