  • I could see myself playing Left 4 Dead 2 with these things, and enjoying the hell out of it. I don’t even care that the overall resolution is lower than the 1080p I currently play at, this would be so completely worth it.

    I hope the headphones are good though. I would hate to have such a nice display chained to subpar audio.
