There's a bunch that are coming out lately, including this one from Samsung:

I'm kinda tempted, although I'd probably need to upgrade my graphics card as well.  Although on the plus side you could probably turn off a lot of the post processing at that resolution.

I dont think its worth personally unless its a really large screen and then you may as well buy a decent TV. Not to mention that alot of games when you bump up the resolution you start to see the lack of detail in the textures. Plus most games nowadays seem to be just going with the "throw as much bloom as possible" at the user so its just a blur of random light sources. Its like the J.J Abrams school of graphic design :S
