The United Kingdom will be set with a resolution of 800 x 600 for 2015. Although less than last year, London buses will still be visible from satellite spy cameras. Trees will be a little blurred and cars will appear slightly pixelated. The Queen announced that while better resolution had been considered, many pensioners did not have high definition monitors and while the current austerity measures were still in force, sacrifices were generally still having to be made.
Keeping the country's resolution at the minimum practical level would also have a beneficial effect on reading glasses sales, as people from all walks of life would be more interested in looking at the slightly larger, if more blurred representation of the topological vista.
War games, combat games and simulations will not be playable to their full potential, but drones will enable Grand Thieving Auto to be played online in 3d with up to 100 simultaneously synchronised consoles. Buckingham Palace announced that Prince George would be viewable from Gargle Earth at a higher resolution to discourage paparazzi from taking opportunistic liberties.
