This is simply totally false......and devoid of any knowledge of the topic..1080p and 720p, is a biggap, anyone with eyes can see the difference immediately. Every site, analysis, says the PS4 clearly looked better....are they all lying??  An image at 1080p is immediatly recognizeable from 720p, it is a lot sharper, more detailed and jumps out.

 

Even on my 32 inch TV mabny feet way there is a stark difference betwen the two.

 

 

If there was no diff the entire industry would not be aiming to hit 1080p.................

Hardcore gamers who pore over pixel-by-pixel zoomed-in comparisons on sites like Digital Foundry notice a difference. The average consumer does not.

YEs, they do....unless they have severe eye issues........................... Whatever makes you sleep at night. There is a major difference, 1080p us vastly superior and the difference is easily seen.  You dont need to zoom in anything, just a quick glance at the screen.  I sduggest you go see an eye doctor. My 8 year odl sees a major diff from when we play a blueray on 1080p from 720p.............

Also, I don't know about you guys, but I buy consoles for games, not a few extra pixels that don't massively change said games.


Umm, if same games run and look better on a 100 cheaper console...that is a major selling point, it's not rocket science.

Xbone and PS4 do not have all the same games.

The majoriity of them certainly are.

I've seen an eye doctor in the last year, I have excellent vision. 720p to 1080p is just not the major visual leap SD to HD was.

And speaking of Blu Ray, many people still buy DVDs, so clearly they're not hung up on the highest resolution like us tech nerds are.

The difference between 720p and 1080p is very very noticable

 

...have you ever actually ever played a game in native 1080p?

These are hard facts

720p is 1280×720 = 921600 pixels

1080p is 1920×1080 = 2073600 pixels

2073600 /921600 = 2.25

 

Therefore PS4 is achieving over double the performance of XBOX ONE in Call of Duty Ghosts.

These are hard factual numbers and cannot be disputed.

The PS4 is also 100$ less than the XBOX one. This is also a factual statement.

 

The PS4 value is clear to see here folks..

 


yep and the game wont look twice as good.

 

in fact it arguably PS4 version will look more like 10% better.

 

Good example is the BF4 controversy, 900P is 50% more pixels than 720P, yet the X1 version actually looks better imo.

Who said anything about SD to HD?? The fact is the gapp betwen 720 and 1080P is very noticeable, it si twice the detail on screen, much sharper detailed image, and it is easily seen with the naked eye, many feet away from your TV.

I'm interested in the kinect, it's worth an extra $100 to me, and most people won't care.

If you were interested in power you'd have a PC anyways.

Ah, another one bringing up PC... Strawman argument, Why get a consolke at all then?? Not every likes PC, or has the money, and many games you cannot get on PC. This is comparing co0nsoles, keep it that way.

 

Cannot geta  PC for 399 that will look half as good.

Most consumers aren't even going to notice. They won't be looking for the differences like us hardcore gamers will.
