If we take Steam's hardware survey into account, just about half of all PC gamers are still gaming at 1080p - a precedent that started to become the norm around 2006-2007. The 'next gen' point of PC gaming was when players hoped to make the incremental jump to 2560x1440 or '2K' resolution. From there, 3840x2160 (4K) has been the big talking point, yet only 0.86% of the Steam userbase are reported to be pulling that off.
The new cross-network play between systems is available to beta test right now.
