    There is no way you could even notice the difference unless you have an 80inch tv or are sitting about 3 feet from the tv.

    That's the idea of larger resolutions mate.

    I do understand how absurd it is though.

    I just meant that for most people the difference between 1080p and 720p isnt noticable even though technically its a huge increase, it'll be the same with 1440p and 1080p.
    Right now its useless because people do not have TVs big enough, eventually though, when there are affordable TVs that fill up an entire wall (which seems to be the way its going), it will be good.
    IMAX@home, woo.

    720p ->1080p is noticible, but not as noticible as 480i->720p

    but!

    720p ->1440p (THAT'S TWICE THE SIZE!!!!!!!!)

    That'll be noticible =]

    and yes, Wii is 480p *hugs his two SDTVs*

    I can't even get 480p =P
