Back In 1990 Did Any Of You Even Hear Of Hdtv?

I won the Premiere issue of Sega Visions off eBay and just got it in the mail today. I was reading it and in the questions and answers sections here is what it said.

Q: First it was 8-bit games and now it's 16-bit games; shouldn't I just wait for the 32-bit game systems to show up next year?

A: You can wait, but they won't be here next year or the year after that, either. Remember, it's not just power, it's screen resolution. Right now home video-games are up against a technological brick wall known as the family TV set. Since Genesis pushes TV capabilities to the limit, better game graphics will debend on HDTV (High Definition TV) which is years away.

Now remember this was the premier issue of Sega Visions that was release June/July 1990. I remember reading this issue to death back in 1990 and I don't remember this. Of course something like that when I was only about 12 years old I'm sure would not stand out in my mind but wow this just really blew my mind when I read this.
