We can't tell you where this photo was taken or who is pictured in it, but we can tell you with some certainty that you will probably have to wait 20 years before your own gaming setup reaches parity with this one. The lucky gamer spotlit down in front is playing Need for Speed: Most Wanted (Xbox 360) on a digital projector painting a 35-foot screen with 10k lumens, ultra contrast ratios, and 4096 x 2160 pixel resolution. The screen alone costs more than most of us invested in our gaming displays.

Of course, some readers will point out that 4096 x 2160 pixels isn't technically HD. Normally, that's annoying. In this case, however, we must cope as we can when presented with overwhelming proof of our own graphical inferiority. Plus, sucking your thumb makes it difficult to type.
