Re: What size TV are you playing your games on?

I have my PS3 PS4 and computer all hooked up to a 24" Asus Monitor. At my desk that is really a small 4 person kitchen table. I took the open huch off my desk and put it on the table. Along with a high back office chair I have been known to fall asleep in.


Getting Older doesn't mean it's GAME OVER
It's a better idea to buy games for your PS4
Than to buy a New Console for your PS4

Recently upgraded from a Samsung 46" to a Sony KDL-55w900A (55") which is phenomenal.

Those numbers influence your gameplay picture. You really should understand what all of it means.

50" LED Samsung 120hz, minus the smart stuff. Think I paid about 900 bucks minus taxes for it from Best Buy. last year...

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/samsung-50-class-49-1-2-diag--led-1080p-120hz-hdtv/4846838.p?id=12185511...

Shows up as $736, in the cart right now... need an account to see it though.

 

TV was cheap likely because it only has 2 HDMI ports and only one Component hookup. With a single USB port. Has a good picture though. Only time will tell if it lasts. That Sony rear projection sure didn't... at least to my satifaction.

 

My old 46" sony rear projection (which I paid over 2k for) broke last year after 9 years of  use. Still works but everything is rainbow colored. Didn't think it was worth fixing....

 

As for distance from TV? About 12  feet, I guess.

How do your PS3 and PS4s look on these larger TVs? can you tell the difference from older gen games and PS4 games in great desparity? Do any of your newer PS4 games not look as great as you'd hope they would look? Do any of your older PS3 games that you may have played on smaller TVs look better or worse on your newer larger TV?

 

For those on moniters and smaller TVs how far away do you sit from them? also do these smaller TVs help or hurt or do not effect your gaming fun, ability to see detail and length of time you can play in a single sitting?

and i honestly respect that and can see both sides of the argument but at what point DO you care about graphics? PS6 looking like PS2 games? you still don't care? i doubt you will be saying the same thing. the only reason why movies are shot in imax and tvs are now coming in 4K is because people DO care about how things look. you dont expect your new 5000 dollar tv to look like an old black and white rabbit ears tv..


I never said I didn't care how it looked, I said I don't care about numbers.  People obsess about numbers, as if hitting an arbitrary number is the difference between a game being good or not, even if they can't possibly tell the difference with the naked eye.  To me, if it looks good, it looks good.  If a game sucks, but looks great, it still sucks and I have no interest in it.

Well I love my plasma, the contrast is beautiful. The ps3 and ps4 games look great. No disappointments with my TV.

Only regret is, its a plasma. if you play a game long enough , you will get an image burn-in.  The burn-in will fade away after use (if you play something  different on the screen).  But if you play COD like 30hrs a day 9days a week.  The things that always stay on the screen, will NEVER go away.  

 

  Perfect example.  Our plasma at work is always tuned to CNN. Now because of the CNNs logo always being displayed on the bottom right of the screen, it is always there.  Even when playing a commercial or another station.  It will always show CNN very noticeable.

 

If you are looking for a gaming TV I would strongly suggest anything other than a plasma.  Because of the image burn-in, and they run a lot warmer.  Plasma's do get warm, and if you have a small room with bad airflow, it will warm up the room in the summer.

I made this, want one for yourself? PM me
