Nothing ridiculous about it; 720p to 1080p is a minor disparity in my view, but 30fps to 60fps is night and day. I am not the only one who thinks so either, many here would agree.
Other people thinking differently only proves my point that its subjective.
Having gamed since the 16 bit era, I don't think any other major consoles have underwhelmed me as much as PS4/Xbone have so far, but that's ok, cos they're not the only options available to me.
It's not surprising that you would go the Wii U route. Everybody who doesn't see 1080p here have a similar taste.But it's an opinion. For me, the most underwhelming consoles were made by Nintendo since the Wii. I want power, I want online features and they are absolutely abysmal in providing this. Right now, I can share any screen or videoclip of my play sessions with anyone. If I do something cool playing online, I have it recorded. Always. For me and for the market, a much bigger innovation than a tablet.
Well, the "minor disparity" sold 8M copies of the next gen version of GTA, so it looks like the majority of people do care. Most of the X1 vs PS4 discussions are about resolution. People do care, and a lot.
With your point, we can prove that 30 vs 60fps is subjective too.
