I don't understand how anyone can overlook the fact that the Xbox One runs multiplatform games at lower resolution.

That is, compared to PS4 - which most of these things are, such as price.

Similarly I don't see how they overlook higher resolutions as a pro in their PS4's pro&cons, http://www.startribune.com/...

I can overlook it because my tv/monitor is 1368x768.. So 1080p isn't very important to me. Most other people it will though.

I meant how someone *writing a pro & con list for the masses* could overlook such a fact.

1080p TVs are more than common these days.

P.S. I like your avatar, and screenname. (wish I could say the same about your TV as well :P)

"Blinders on!"

I'm more surprised that the media isnt grilling MS for it compared to their *uck up during Xbone reveal or E3.

I'm going to give my honest opinion as to why I'm getting the One over the PS4:

I feel that the Xbox One offers much more in the overall package. The media functions are awesome, the HDMI-in is a great feature and the console can be used as my entertainment center.

The Kinect is a big feature to me too. I like how it makes browsing the UI much easier by voice commands and gestures, and I can't wait to see what the devs will create for it.

The controller is also another big selling point to me. Rumble Triggers felt amazing when I tried back in september, and the controller felt amazing comfortable.

Then there are the other things, like dedicated servers for all games and the snap feature.

All the power to ya. I'm getting an Xbox One too.

I just can't bring myself to buy any multiplats on the X1 anymore, knowing that they all run at higher resolution on another console which I also own.

And when nba2k14, need for speed, fifa 14, etc. all run 1080p on both nobody cares.

Deltaohio951d ago

Because 720p still looks good. 1080p is def better but at what resolution does a consumer stop caring? I will have zero interest in 4k since 1080p is good enough. And I'm sure for some 720p is good enough as well.
That doesn't man X1 gets a pass for 720p tho. 1080p is just a sign of performance IMO. I really could care less if the PS4 used that power to make a game 1080p to look nice. I'd rather see more things on screen, better AI, better physics etc. that screams more next gen to me then extra pixels.

very true we all like really nice graphics but as you say the AI needs to improve drastically this gen more than anything
