    A QTE game which plays itself that even filthy casuals don't want is exactly what PC gamers have been hankering for! :rolleyes:

    How is supporting a high resolution worthy of being mentioned like some kind of great feature?

    I have indie games on steam that cost less than a fiver and support whatever resolution the PC is capable of.

    If there's any Xbox exclusive I want to see on the PC, it'd have to Halo 3/Halo: Reach. Or maybe Halo Wars... I'm seeing a pattern here. (Different companies I know but I can still dream..)

    Indeed. Some pre 2000 games support 4K.

    A game that didn't sell is coming to a platform that probably doesn't want it...

    Prediction - it won't sell anywhere remotely close to the number Crytek hope it will [like on the X1], Piracy will get wheeled out as the reason for it selling badly when the reality is all the 4k shiny in the world won't divert attention away from the game being pretty rubbish...

    And all this in an effort to punt an engine no-one wants to pay for...

    Seven years later, Crysis is still Crytek's best selling game, evidently they should have laid off the pies before running after the cash.

    Played this on xb1 at a m8s house, it looks good no dou't about it but the actual game itself is bad. Would never purchase a game just cause it has 4 k resolution.

    The amount that own a 4k screen compared to any other resolution must be in the 0.001% region.

    According to steam hw survey for July 2014 0.02% use 3840 x 2160.

    By comparison 1.11% use linux, making 4k monitors 55.5 times more obscure than linux.

    Apple wont release a 4k IMAC before theres a GPU that can run it that will fit in the power envelopes that Apple uses.

    If the Rumoured specs going around for the Nvidia 880 then it will not run 4k resolution at an acceptable fps in modern games. You will need at least 2 of them to reach that level.

    Spending 1k + on gpus to run 4k is not something everyone can afford to do.

    4k as a whole needs GPU Hardware Manufactures to release alot faster hardware. Or find something but Direct X to code in to get the performance that way.

    As it as the Steam survey shows its a niche within a niche.

    only 2 models of mac [current models of 15" rMBP and the Mac Pro] currently [officially at least] support 4k screens at 60Hz, at 30hz it widens slightly to 4 models [the 2 mentioned before + current models of 13" rMBP and 27" iMac], so while 4k imacs will happen at some point, i think 4k on mac will be limited to external/additional monitors on the higher-end macs for the time being...

    Crytek seriously ****ed up when they started catering to consoles. imagine what crysis 2 and 3 might have been like.
