@  d2_s : (19 June 2017 - 10:16 PM) I'm in agreement with you Tony and I would hazzard a guess that Sony's own exclusives will be impressive enough that people wont be wishing they were on XB1X much like the X1's exclusives were technically as good as anything else.
@  ermac666 : (20 June 2017 - 06:37 AM) I am quite impressed with the ps4 exclusives like days gone where there are tons of zombies on screen, and the game still maintains the frame rate and graphical fidelity. It is also no typical shooter where you endlessly just shoot down zombies. You have to utilise the environments and stealth to play. Story looks to be good as well.
@  Brandino : (30 June 2017 - 01:36 AM) The SNES classic ....  only 20 somewhat games is a bit of a disappointment.   The urge to buy a raspberry pi with a snes case is much higher then dropping 100 on something with corded controllers and 20 games
@  SpaceInsomniac : (09 July 2017 - 04:44 AM) So Kyle / Direwolf: I just recently picked up Rocket League again after not playing since the first month or so.  Still great fun, but I was wondering if you could suggest any You Tube tutorials or anything for new-ish players.  Anything come to mind?
@  kyle_5_16 : (19 July 2017 - 10:56 AM) Honestly I don't really know of any tutorials online, I never really watched any, just played a LOT
@  kyle_5_16 : (19 July 2017 - 10:56 AM) The training in that game is great for building up your mechanics though
@  kyle_5_16 : (19 July 2017 - 10:57 AM) and people make and share all sorts of custom training scenarios too
@  kyle_5_16 : (19 July 2017 - 10:57 AM) after that it is learning the basics or teamplay (if you aren't doing solos) and overall team rotation, which I do know there are tutorials on, i'll see if I can find them

@  SpaceInsomniac : (20 July 2017 - 07:33 AM) Cool.  Thanks for the advice!
@  Brandino : (05 August 2017 - 02:26 AM) I've been playing the new Doom on PC..... that game is so bad ass and so much fun.  I wish more FPS would go back to the classic roots...
@  TonyDP : (05 August 2017 - 08:15 PM) I beat the new Doom on my PS4 a few weeks back; really fun game. Once you beat it, make sure to watch the credits - they're actually one of the best cinematics I've seen and really kick ass (you'll know what I mean when you check them out).
@  Brandino : (05 August 2017 - 10:33 PM) I've been taking my sweet time exploring each level for the secrets ,   it's a fun throw back which is nice for a change.
@  ermac666 : (08 August 2017 - 08:37 PM) Hellblade Sensua's Sacrifice on ps4 is an interesting game you guys should check out. I played for 2 hrs, and I am liking what I see!
@  ermac666 : (08 August 2017 - 08:39 PM) ps4 pro is 60 fps for hellblade, and ps4 frame rate is unlocked.
@  d2_s : (12 August 2017 - 04:09 AM) I completed my 1st playthrough of hellblade earlier today. PS4 pro suports both a 60hz mode and a high res 30fps mode. The game is a flawed masterpiece IMO. Gorgeous visuals and excellent overall story and presentation let down by a sometimes painful combat system. The combat itself is not bad, but the targeting system is complete rubbish and some of the combat scenarios plain stink - i wont spoil anything. I'd describe the combat as being like Ryse Son of Rome minus the button prompts and dismemberment. Definately worth a look for the price.
@  d2_s : (12 August 2017 - 04:10 AM) The game gets more visually stunning as one progresses and is up there with the prettier games this gen. Ninja Theory really outdid themselves.
@  Brandino : (17 August 2017 - 12:06 AM) Crackdown delayed yet again...
@  d2_s : (17 August 2017 - 08:15 AM) bummer
@  d2_s : (17 August 2017 - 09:46 AM) Ha I was going through my psn download list and noticed someone purchased 42 movies on my account last september.

Hey B,

I'm so out of the loop with display tech it's not even funny. Been rocking the Kuro since 2009 and though she's served me well all these years, it's probably time I embrace a display with some more modern features.

From what I've seen HDR is as big a deal (if not more) than 4k itself.  If you are looking at using this display for gaming and you want to make good use of HDR I suggest you start looking on forums regarding which has the best implementation of HDR, what modes it can be used in and how it affects input lag. On some displays - so I hear - HDR can have some serious lag so just be forewarned.

Not much to add other than that. Don't know anything about Vizio displays, haven't kept up with what Sharp has been doing...I have heard good things about LG displays, but nothing specific. A cousin of mine has an enormous 4k LG 3D LED tv and I must say I was quite impressed with it. My brother in law recently picked up a 4K LG OLED, which was even more impressive.

Sorry I'm not of much help right now, but at least I could pass on that tidbit about HDR. Hopefully, someone who has been keeping up with things can chime in.

All I know is there are 2 kinds of HDR, and the TV and the incoming signal have to be of the same type. It's like DTS & Dolby Digital of the audio realm. I think some devices handle both kinds, but not many.

You're a brave man having small children in a room with a fancy TV. I would always worry they'd throw something and it would accidentally hit the TV & shatter the screen or knock it over. I always figured if I found myself in that situation that I'd buy some thick glass & have it bolted in front to protect it, but then I do like to over-build things. :-P
Failure is not important. How you overcome it is.

Anyone have any thoughts?

Hey, it's my old thread!  

My thought would be go with the LG.  I'm still enjoying mine, and I bought a somewhat smaller one for my parents that they enjoy as well.

It's a shame--and more than a little ridiculous--that Sony isn't including a 4K Blu-ray player in the PS4 "Pro," but MS is including one in the new cheep version of their Xbox One.  WTF is that?

Anyhow, I haven't really checked into much of any of this.  Do companies make many 4K blu-rays already?  Are all blu-rays moving towards that standard, and are they usually more expensive than standard blu-rays?

I was all set to buy a 65" Sony at Bestbuy since it was on sale advertised on the front page of the flyer....  and sure enough they pulled the old bait and switch routine.   Apparently none of the three locations in my city have them and I am not allowed to get a raincheck/reservation when they do get them in.    I was told that I can call the store around 8 pm Wednesday night as thats when they may get their shipment and if they do receive it that I would then have to race across town by 9 pm to buy it before the sale ends that night.   Got to love the Bestbuy!   I learned all of this after waiting in the store for 30 minutes as the sales employee was trying to find one in the back.

In my angered state I left and went to Costco to buy the massive 75" Sharp... only to then realize that my SUV is just a bit to small for the tv to fit in the back lol....  

The hunt continues today....

I pulled the trigger on a Sony X930D last week. I wasn't planning on getting a 4K HDR display so soon, but the price was so good I had to get this one and have retired the gaming Kuro. Black levels are good enough, motion processing and input lag more than acceptable, colours and brightness are exceptional. Despite it having the some of the typical shortfalls of an edge lit display, after calibration I would rate this as being superior to the Kuro in every category other than viewing angles, blacks and motion. Very happy with the purchase. If it wasn't discounted it wouldn't have been my first choice, but for the money I couldn't be happier. Just need the Ps4 Pro to go with it now :)/>

Brandino, congrats on your new purchase. May I ask, the Sony you were going to get, was it the X940D?

I've had a 50" Vizio P-50 since they came out this summer and I love it. I mostly use it with my PC but have watched some movies on it via the Xbox One S and Vudu/Netflix. HDR is legit. Can't wait to replace my big theater TV with 4k HDR :)

Nay it was the  x850 which is the cheaper option.

I received my 75" tv today... holy fawk is it huge !  My couches are about 18 feet away so it's the perfect size for that range.

At first I wasn't that blown away... until I realized that by default the energy saving picture mode was enabled on all inputs...  I set them to game mode and standard and holy crap the picture knocked me off my feet.  

Watching some 4k vids off youtube it's absolutely stunning.      Playing games is great... the colors really pop out.   I think that I will be getting the xbox one s with Battlefield one bundle ....  I'm curious to see how or if the HDR makes any difference in that game.   Same goes with Forza and Gears 4 which I bought both.

Back to the TV... for the tiny price I paid the Sharp product is really really nice.  Great value for the price.
