People give a crap because of console wars, and it's ammo. The difference between XBO and PS4 wasn't big, but it was there. The difference between PS5 and XSX is even less than half of that.
it was back then for exactly the same reason.....
EDIT: BUT IT DOESN'T COUNT IF ITS AGAINST THE CONSOLE OF MY FAVOUR HURRRDUURRR
I've already explained the difference.
900p vs 1080p is noticeable. I very much doubt at the much higher resolution with diminishing returns and the less than half power gap the difference is going to be noticeable in standard gameplay to almost anyone.
900p vs 1080p is a noticeable increase in image quality.
1900p vs 2160p? is anyone going to notice?
That's my point. The gap this time is so small that the only people that are going to care are the ones looking for ammo.
Now the gap may be larger than this, we'll find out in a couple of weeks but I doubt it. There comes a point when a gap is small enough that the only reason to care is console wars.
