"Contrast Ratio: 100,000,000:1"


I'm skeptical.

Monitor listings are often like this, you can't take their word for any non-obvious spec they give. That number is based on if you turn the dimming feature on which will adjust backlight in dim scenes, so they can just measure a full black screen and a full white screen and claim crazy contrast. You'll see this number on tons of monitors that have this useless, if not outright annoying, feature (note that it's only useless if there are no dimming zones or a very low number of them, which is every single sub-$1000 monitor).


That said, this monitor is insanely overpriced for the current market and nobody should buy it anyway.

Bummer that the PC version of 2042 isn't included.

Eh, this is "fuck it, sure" price.  Only way I could possibly be disappointed is if it destroys my controllers and there are no reviews suggesting that.

Is the PlayStation version in a higher resolution than 1080p on PS4 Pro? Does anyone know?

Not 100% sure, but the PC version tops out at 1080p internally without mods, so I'd say there's a really good chance it's 1080p on all platforms.
