    Can gaming at 8K really be easy in 2019? Sharp thinks so, and they sent over a demo unit to show us just how easy it is. But they didn't account for one thing... the Linus factor.

            I really hate when people point to something on the screen, and they physically poke the screen.

            Don't deny it. You can see the screen move.

                                Here I am, Happy with 1080p. 4k ( if I have care to get one ) will be my max till death display. Then again, I might live longer then the 4k spec is sold.

                                    You will be able to do that in 8k playing games on the PlayStation 5 PlayStation 4 can play 4K so Sony is jumping right up to 8K I can't wait I'm so excited with 120 hertz refresh rate

                                        Fuck 8K, fuck 4K! Both of them are absolutely unnecessary! Our eyes can only see so much detail and unless u've got a screen that's like 4.8 by 2.7 meters and ur sitting half a fuckin' meter away from it (in which case what's the fuckin' point of such a huge screen!?) there's surely nothing that can't be rendered just FINE in 1080p! I've been using 1080p in games for YEARS and never had any fuckin' issue runnin' out of pixels or something!

                                        But if u wanna keep wasting money on this crap that doesn't do us any good go ahead and pay the outragous prices for these things! I'll stick to 1080p and use the saved money on things that make sense!

                                            Sharp electronics. Isn't that the same company that made the 8k DSLR/MSLR (I don't know if it is mirrorless or not) this year?

I've learned to not care about customisation and just live amongst the sheep. I know this 8k thing is just a bit of fun and I'm glad you got it working, but I'm still good with my 1080p since hardly anything is optimised for new tech and I'm not wasting anymore time configuring shit.
