I'm really excited for this game! Haven't played the first two yet but only because I've not had time. Will be making time though!

1440p isn't even the mainstream for gaming now and 4k isn't catching on anywhere, with regards to gaming... at least, I have yet to meet anyone gaming at that resolution

Once there are 60hz 4K tv's they will be all over the forum for people gaming on them, the only hold back right now is hdmi 2.0. It will be soon! 1440 will be a thing of the past when that happens as these tv's are going to sub $1000 and at that price who wouldn't want a 39" or so 4K screen over a little 27" 1440 for right around the same price?

The May 2013 Steam Survey paints a pretty jarring picture lol, 1080p has 30% of all resolutions represented in gaming, followed by 1336x768 (typical 15" laptop resolution), 1680x1050, 1600x900, 1400x900, etc. 1440p is 0.88%, 1600p is 0.16%, waaaaaay behind the others. If anything that resolution is still in it's infancy.

I reckon maybe by 2018-2020 we may start seeing 1440p and 1600p begin to overtake 1080p for the typical gamer.

which is why I don't think 4k is going to overtake any of them anytime soon... not saying I wouldn't love to game at that resolution....

Very true, it won't be mainstream for a long time. However, if you were in the market for a larger high res monitor would you rather have the 27" 2560x1440 for $700 or the 39" 4K for $900? I'm thinking the majority of people that can afford the 1440 monitors would actually rather have the 4k, especially since there isn't an advantage of going with the 1440 given the issues with them. I'm just saying that for relatively the same price 4K will be the better option for most high end gamers.

Anyways, back on topic drunken.gif
