    Well, with the release of Sony PS4 Neo coming out next year, there's finally an incentive for me to move away from simple PC games and handheld 3DS, and move on into the big screen. What I thought would be a simple case of "Pick 4k TV, go home" turned out to be, well... not so simple.

    Here's what I'm aware that I should be looking for:

    • 50 inch screen (Okay, I admit it, I just like the size)
    • Refresh rate of 120Hz
    • As low an input lag as possible
    • 4k resolution, for those beautiful console releases next year


    Anything else I missed out?

    Is an OLED screen really necessary? I'd rather keep my budget to £500 or under, and I'd rather not pay a premium just so I can tell the difference between black, and a very dark grey.
    Is HDMI 2.0 completely necessary, if my main connection points are Wifi and the console itself?
    Is HDR any use, at all, for gaming? I'd imagine not.

    Why don't I build a PC? Well. Playing Wii U games on a PC, I would imagine to be quite difficult. But as long as my console will run like a PC, I'm happy.
