i didnt expect `1080p from nintendo, but i did from the xbox one and ps4. look PC gamers have been bragging about 1080p for years, i expected sony and microsoft to put enough power into there counsel so most games could be 1080p. it looks like Sony did, and it looks like MS got cheap and did not.

microsoft didn't go cheap though there console cost more to make then ps4, they just made horrible descisions by focusing on making a all in one entertainment device, they decided early they wanted 8 gigs of ddr3 no matter how bad it would effect the console performance,.sony was orginially gonna jusy have 2-4 gigs of fast ram, cause of how expensive it was, and there main focus was on making the best gaming console, later they decided lets just put 8 cause the price has dropped significantly by the time the console was in final planning stages.

Actually, according to their twitter, kinect 2.0 accounts for roughly half the cost of the system.

if you can have it 1080p is better than 720p especially on more detailed games



...not much time to post anymore, used to be awesome on here really good fond memories from VGchartz...

PSN: Skeeuk - XBL: SkeeUK - PC: Skeeuk

really miss the VGCHARTZ of 2008 - 2013...

so do you think 1080 should be mandatory?



 

even N64 had 1080p, get it together Xbone!



Not sure the point of this thread....No one says 1080P is more important then gameplay..but why can;t we have both? It's 2013 1080p is pretty standard. Choose between the same game one at 720P and the other 1080p, any objective person would rather 1080p, it is a very noticeable upgrade. Its not like 1080p is going to change the gameplay lol.

If resolution doesn't matter, we can keep playing at 256 x 240 pixels on our NES Systems until all eternity. After all, its gameplay that matters, right?

1080 is the best type of snowboarding game.



It's not about resolution in 1080p in isolation,
a 1080p game just shows the platform had the power available for that resolution in combo with the rest of the game design decisions.
Each dev can make the best choice as to how to use what is available on each platform.
For multiplatform games, developers will simply have "left over" power on PS4 after achieving the same
gameplay features that XBone can handle, and they will choose to put that towards more resolution, FPS, effects as they best see fit.

It's about which is better: "more resolution/FPS/rendering details" or "less of the above"
XBone has to give up some of the above compared to PS4, because that's just the reality of their hardware,
that is why higher spec GPU's cost more, and why MS didn't go for a 33% smaller GPU than what they have.

If/when MS starts selling Kinect-less XBone's they can drop their price ~$100 on those bundles.
But if they want to free up the CPU/GPU resources currently dedicated to Kinect to be available for games,
that means that current and future XBone+Kinect2 owners will be unable to use those always-on
Kinect features while that hardware is "taken over" by a game utilizing it, breaking the expectation for Kinect.
This is on top of XBone's OS, which itself reserves (holds back from the game) more resources than PS4.
And yet XBone will still come up deficient in hardware power... Unlike last gen,
where each side had pros/cons, there is nothing that XBone's CPU/GPU can do that PS4's can't do (+more).

Heck, if anybody is truly happy with just the performance level of XBone, then PS4 games are free
to allocate their extra power to running calculations to develop a cure to cancer, AIDS, etc.

well the 3DS has almost the same resolution and it shines with it's gameplay so yeah i guess.



On my old 40'' FullHD LCD TV I see no difference between 720p and 1080p sitting 3.5-4 meters from TV.
On my old 22'' 1680x1050 LCD monitor I see the difference even between 1680x1050 and 1280x800 sitting in 1 meter.
On my new 55" FHD LED LCD TV I found that the difference between 1080p and 720p is sooo HUUGE! Sitting 3-3.5 meters away from TV.
Of course, PS4 and XO both have own cons and pros, but if you ask to choose between 1080p and 720p, I will choose the first no doubt.
