VIDEO: Modern Warfare 2 Spread to Six Screens

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 62 comments

We've seen examples of ATI's Eyefinity technology before but we have not seen it used to play Modern Warfare 2 across six displays.

Most of us can't afford a set up like this at home, so we'll have to make do with the video below. But don't be too sad! The silver lining is that it's nearly time for MW2 DLC. Xbox users will be getting it first (tomorrow) and the pack contains three new maps and two old ones from COD4, but PC and PS3 gamers should get their Mapathy cures before too long.

    This really makes no sense to me Id rather see it on 1 big screen instead the gaps between each screen is annoying.

    It's time to get rid of the frames. Wooo.... frameless LCD is the future.

    Well I think I'd rather not have a big black line going through my sights. I get that the border takes up 0 space of the image, but still!

    The middle bar would be a huge inconvenience for any FPS or other game with a centered crosshair. That's exactly why three displays in portrait mode, with an undisturbed HUD on the center screen, makes a lot more sense than six displays, or any other configuration that breaks the center of your overall display.

    And, as mianmian mentioned, even thin bezels around LCDs makes for an unpleasant viewing experience, in my opinion. The extra real estate might give you a competitive edge, but it just doesn't look good to me.

    3 screens is the way to go, 6 is not good.

    Hmm. wonder if anyone will try and connect it to 6 projector displays.. you could remove the frames that way, and it will me much bigger.

    Why the heck would you use 6 projectors? 1 would accomplish the same thing

    This multiscreen thing is sooo stupid! Never would I even want this, even if i could get multiple screens for the price of one.

    Yea let's have 64 7" LCDs to make up a giant monitor with obstructive black gaps. You are not a fly!

    6 19x10 projectors will show a lot more then 1 19x10 that takes up same amount of wall space. That is why this is a good thing, yea no borders would make it better, but no single screen will have the resolution of that setup. Dunno why people keep saying that they rather have one big display, it won't show anything as clearly or have the resolution of this setup. a 70 inch screen at 19x10 resolution will clearly show pixels when close up, 6 19x10 won't since the total resolution is 6 times what one single display has, so will have smaller pixels.

    I believe the largest projectors are 1080p. so instead of 100" of 1920x1080, how about 100" of 5760x2160? If you have the money for that, I'm sure you have the money for the graphics cards to power it.

    You can use a projector for a large surface area but the resolution would still be lower. Using multiple projectors would get round this giving a much higher resolution for an even larger surface... I think that was the point of Socnom.

    As for these articles themselves... they have been done before many times regarding various games. It's all old news with the same issues being talked about, they are just using a different game. Still, I guess its a change from all the repetitive rubbish on the Fermi articles.

    3 is the best. I set my system up with 2 at first and the crosshairs on the frame made it impossible so I assume 6 would suck as well. Maybe 9 screens?

    This is completely retarded as far as playing MW2.

    Useful for a trade-show or something along those lines - but for home use - yeah it's pointless.

    resolution_ftl@trnddwn33: because most people can't afford a 5760x2160 projector, douchington.


    But I'm sure most people have 6 grand lying around to buy 6 $1k+ 1080p projectors.

    I agree with a lot of the others here. There is no point to enlarge the image to 6 screens. All's we are doing is basically zooming in to the point of having to use 6 displays. Now eyefinity on 3 screens is better due to it not enlarging the image but actually giving a chance to see your peripheral vision on the two side monitors.
