Hideo Kojima on 1080p and HD: dirty is the new clean

Remember a few days ago, when we posted about the recent GamePro magazine? sling just posted a snapshot of one part of Hideo Kojima's interview in that issue. And it reveals something quite interesting to note.

Yes, he comments on a possible game in the future for the Wii, but that's not entirely shocking. What we want you to check out is the bottom part of the snapshot which reveals Kojima's thoughts on 1080p and HD capabilities.

To quote: "MGS games tend not to care about how clean the screen looks... we deliberately make the graphics look dirtier to give the atmosphere more life."

The story is too old to be commented.

I'm all for 1080p, but when games like Gears of War look as good as they do in 720p, it's not an absolute necessity. MGS4 will be great either way.

and you know what? It still looked f-ing gorgeous. HD is great, but it's not entirely necessary in order to enjoy PS3/360 titles.

DJ what???

First I read you Sony fanboys go freaking out over the PS3 having 1080p and the 360 at that time 'only' 720p, now you say even going back to 480p is allright?

Come on. Just because suddenly the PS3 ain't the 'true hd' paradise you're crawling back to SD format? Problems with scaling (no hardware to support it in PS3, while 360 has a splendid scaling chip) which make it only real great on a 1080p screen which almost no-one has

I played Gears of War on 480p and 720p. While 480p still looks allright one is blown away on 780p. I guess it's because Resistance isn't that great graphical wise why you don't see the difference between 480p and 720p

I can't really afford to care, all I want is good games to play. How many gamers can actually afford an 1080p enabled HDTV? Even an ordinary Lcd is expensive for many.

Same goes for you. That's funny because as far as i remember you were one of the guys saying that 1080p wouldn't be achieved and would be completely useless anyways. Now that the 360 upscales to 1080p you're all excited about the true HD glory.
Obviously the only point of having 1080p enabled is to have a HUGE tv. I'm not completely sure it would look that different from 720p on an average tv, say 32" or so.
Anyone did some tests on those kind of TV's ?
