the 1080p people...

Forums - Gaming Discussion - the 1080p people...

I wonder... why people are complaining games that are not on 1080p....

as if you can't enjoy a game at a lower resolution.

it is true that 1080p looks better (little or much much more) vs the 720p.... but would that hinder you from playing that game especially if it is exclusive to the system?


i see people might not be interested in MK8 if it won't run in 1080...



are these people has not enjoyed playing game since recently? since the introduction of the 1080p?

is it really that big of a deal?

so what if someone's COD only play 720p.... at least his sytem will have a Halo in his box


have we reach the point of... if it is not high res it won't be enjoyable?


Ive seen the debate going on and on about the power... but we have been gaming for decades with a much lower res and that didn't stop us on enjoying a game...


true HD is revolutionary but it is not everything.


feel free to throw tomato on me.... but i feel sorry for the "fans" that only enjoy 1080p and not the game itself

Nobody is saying a game isn't fun if it isn't 1080p. However it's true that 1080p is a higher resolution and that *all else held equal*, higher resolution is more desirable.

It's just to rile up ppl. A fake point in this imaginary war. It's ridiculous. Some act like they are getting paid. It's all about The Conversion

720p or 1080p? Which would you choose, all else being equal?

Quite honestly, I don't notice much of a difference between the 720p and 1080p. Most people don't even notice a difference unless you see both resolutions side by side.

I care more about frame rates. I'm disappointed we aren't seeing more games achieving 60 fps or maintaining it.

A higher resolution is always better for gaming. Having a lower resolution just decreases precision of an image.

When I put the settings on my pc to 900p or 1080p I already see a huge difference. Let alone 720p - 1080p. Even on a big television you clearly feel the difference. If you play CoD ghosts for a while on xbox one and afterwards playing on PS4 the difference is immense and I actually think that this factor alone can already define your purchase


PS4 will sell 25 million units before 31st of March!

Edit: I didn't state what year! HAHA, so I'm still right in some sense

Nope, its not all about 1080p but in a multiplatform game, the one with a higher resolution and framerate is always the superior version.

However, you have to keep in mind that on PC, 1080p was pretty much the standard since 2-3 years ago. I run skyrim with enb and high resolution texture mods, full blown 1080p.

Intel core i7 930 OC @ 4.0 ghz

XFX Double dissipation Radeon HD 7950 356 bit 3gb GDDR5 OC @ 1150 MHz core + 1575 x 4 memory

Triple channel DDR 3 12gb RAM 1600 MHz

I don't play sub 1080p on my PC and I'd rather not play sub 1080p on my console (especially since that's all I've done last gen). It's not a deal breaker, but I'd rather not have to.

I'll just add that on PC (for me at least): 1920 x 1080 resolution is the absolute must have. All other settings are extra.

Anyone who says they won't play Mario Kart if it's not 1080p are fools. 1080p is nicer that 900 or 720p, but a lower resolution generally doesn't sour a great experience. Framerate has a much bigger impact.
