The XBox One; will you go and buy it

When consoles first came out I was a fan. Well, if we go back to my beginnings it was on a TV console game (Pong and the like) back in the late 70’s I believe it was.

I progressed from that to an Atari 2600 which gave myself and my brother hours of fun. Pacman, Combat, Space Invaders just to name a few. When one game finished it was round to a mates to swap and let..

Following that though I moved on to a ZX81 and Commodore C64 which I loved and again had many many games. I didn’t venture back into consoles until the Sega Mastersystem which again was fantastic for its time BUT.. I found limiting compaired to a computer on which you can do more.

So, after the Mastersystem I went back into computers going through Atari ST, Amiga’s and into PC’s. I let many consoles pass me by until a number of years ago.

Just before the Xbox 360 came out I bought an older second hand Xbox and a PS2. I enjoyed the games still, playing less than on the computer but like the joypad for things like racing games.

I liked but not enough to get a Xbox360. That said though; a couple of years ago I finally decided to go for an Xbox 360 prompted by the Kinect. Now; again I don’t play enough myself but its great fun.

So; history aside and moving up to date we have now seen the Xbox One anounced. Will I get one? Certainly not on release. In fact, if my previous history carries forward it will be a few years till I move forward. Is the XBox 360 obsolite? Well no; I can still get old XBox games. 

Personally I don’t believe is running out and jumping on the bandwagon straight away. However, if nobody did that the the console/technology would die before starting so I do thank those that do. However, remember that your old tech still works and if you don’t play do a hand me down to someone that would?Microsoft Confirms That The Xbox One Will Come With An Incredibly

The next generation of HD TVs

The established current generation of High Definition TVs are soon to be superseded by 4K televisions offering an Ultra High Definition resolution of up to 4096 x 2160 pixels, compare that to today’s standards of 1280 × 720 or 1920×1080 pixels. LG have recently unveiled an 84-inch 4K 3D TV, set to be released in Europe this September and it will set you back around £14.000 ($22.000). Rumour has it that Sonys next gen Playstation 4 will also support 4K resolutions and probably the Xbox720 will also support the new format too.

 

But the UN’s communication standards setting agency has just approved a new Super Hi-Vision 8K TV standard, offering a resolution of 7,680 by 4,320 pixels, running at 60 frames per second and they intend to double that to 120 frames per second. TV sets won’t be commercially available until around 2020 and it will be at least 2025 before they fall below $10.000.
