Much Ado About HD

Tell ’em you’re playing in HD and no one will get hurt

Eurogamer recently sat down with Epic Games’ Mark Rein to discuss, among other things, the future of the Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, and the fact that a majority of gamers don’t seem to be taking advantage of this generation’s technical capabilities.

Instead of playing games in glorious 1080p, a lot of gamers are still stuck in the stone age of standard definition.  The humanity!

[Rein] My point is, of the systems that are out there now, the majority of them aren’t plugged into HDTVs. So there’s no way we’re ready for the PlayStation 4 or the Xbox Whatever.

The question he should ask is why HD and those gorgeous looking visuals largely unneeded by this generation’s market leader, Nintendo.
