Star Citizen hands-on with 4K: rolling in space on pre-release

In what's essentially a very, very early build of Star Citizen here at NVIDIA's Montreal 2013 event, we've gotten the opportunity to get up-close and hands-on with the likes of 4K output.

Using a variety of sources - Riot Games, Sports Business Journal, Wedbush Securities, and Nielsen, a few numbers were spilled - perhaps the most boggling being the idea that the number of PC gamers in the world is currently double that of the entire population of the United States.
