Thought of the Day #2

I was walking along, and was thinking about big screen tv's.

I think that most of the people that are going to buy a big screen tv for sports have already done so. The real killer app for big screen tv's is video games. Social video games (Guitar Hero, Rock Band, first person shooters, etc) require large screens so that everyone playing can see their characters and what they need to do. In first person shooters the game is normally split into quadrants, so the individual screen size is 1/4 of the size of the screen. In Rock Band the players basically split the screen into thirds, but the top of the screen is taken by the vocals.

Once you have played on a big screen, you don't want to play on little screens. Since many of these games bring together groups of people, they will start wanting the proper equipment.
