Yep, agreed. And hardware manufacturers all seem to be on the same page now. PS3 is the only HD console that does not have a built in proper scaler. And most TV scalers are still a bit slow, so PS3 games tend to feel laggy on some screens,
Xbox 360 was much more forward thinking in this regard even though it’s capped at 1080p.
What we really need now is a nice 4k upscaling device that can quickly handle all non-4k HD resolutions without much lag.
