4k is utterly worthless on a tv unless you're about a foot away or its 100", so don't expect that to matter much. On monitors sure, but not tvs.
I think it will matter a lot more than 3D matters, but we will see how it shapes up to be in the next few years.
I don't believe 1080p is the resolution that will stick around for the next 5-10 years.

It will matter more than 3D, but it won't truly matter. 20/20 vision isn't good enough for it to matter on our current TV sizes and current TV viewing distances. It only matters if we get closer to the TVs (as stores will make sure we do) or if we buy giant TVs. For an 80" TV you have to be 5 feet away to see the full benefit of 4K. Granted, you see some benefits up to 10 feet away, but it doesn't make a big impact until at 5 foot spot. No one wants to be five feet from an 80" TV.
For a much more common 55" TV, you need to be 3.5' away.
