[b][i]Gives us a beautiful glimpse of gaming in the future:[/i][/b] [img]http://www.extremetech.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/8k-crysis-downsize-640x353.jpg[/img] You know how your computer struggles to run Crysis 3 at 1920×1080 at very high detail? And you know how beautiful it looks, even at that humdrum resolution? Well, now an enthusiast called K-putt has used a hacked Crysis 3 executable to run the game at 8K — and I’m not being hyperbolic when I say that the resultant screenshots are probably the most beautiful examples of real-time computer-generated graphics that I’ve ever seen. Crysis 3 at 8K looks so good that you could be mistaken for thinking that these screenshots are hand-drawn concept art — but in fact they’re straight out of the engine. Don’t get your hopes up for 8K gaming any time soon, though: K-putt has a pretty beefy gaming rig, and yet it could only muster 2 fps when running at 8K resolution. As you’re probably well aware, ever since Crysis was first released i

PC game revenues have passed console games, but the release of the PS4 and Xbox One should help keep a comparable revenue stream. [i]"Among core gamers there is a heavy overlap with most console gamers also playing on a PC. The big difference is that consoles are now the luxury item and PCs are the necessity. Just a few years ago the reverse was true. This means PCs have the broader audience."[/i] [i] [/i] [url=http://www.pcr-online.biz/news/read/pc-games-have-surpassed-console-games-globally/033849][i]Full article[/i][/url] [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/10222iBDBC1F311F81A7DD.png[/img]
There's a bunch that are coming out lately, including this one from Samsung: [url=http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-28-Inch-Definition-Monitor-U28D590D/dp/B00IEZGWI2]http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-28-Inch-Definition-Monitor-U28D590D/dp/B00IEZGWI2[/url] 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.

Next week that will change, as Microsoft's top-down sci-fi shooter finally comes to the much bigger Windows 7 PC audience, along with Windows Vista.

On Saturday, Microsoft, a documentary film crew, and some big excavation machines proved that Atari [url=http://www.neowin.net/news/microsoft039s-atari-039et039-landfill-excavation-event-successful-game-cartridges-found]had indeed buried unsold "E.T." 2600 game cartridges[/url] in a New Mexico landfill during 1983, along with other titles from that classic console. Now, Microsoft has posted up a brief video clip on YouTube that shows the highlights from the event in Alamogordo. The video is hosted by [url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8jHpOsJQaHM]Microsoft's Xbox Live director of programming Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb[/url] and shows the heavy machinery that was brought in to excavate the landfill. It also features brief chats with many people involved in the documentary of the Atari "E.T." game including director Zak Penn. The last part of the video shows the first copies of the game that were found in the landfill, which confirmed what
