Resolution is only a small part of graphics , and graphics itself is the Least important thing about a Game in my opinion . so to be honest its not much of a big deal . its just a funny way to make fun of Xbox One . and I must admit some of those Jokes are really funny :D and I also must Admit Xbox fans Made jokes like these about PS3 in the last gen when some games looked a little better on 360 .
on my large 48 TV , Difference is Noticeable if you sit close to the TV . but I don't think it effects the gameplay experience .
if xbox one was the same price as PS4 it wouldn't be much of a big deal if it runs at lower resolution . but when its 100$ more expensive and the Kinect is pretty much useless ... then I say ps4 is a better console to buy . and i think that was the main purpose of your question :)
I'll buy both anyways .

I guess on these new consoles it makes sense for people to want games to run in 1080p. But there's no reason to disregard a game or anything if it runs in 720p. Looking at side by side comparisons, I can barely tell the difference. And obviously when you're playing, it's not like you are going to be comparing it side by side to the other version. Still, I understand the expectation, but I still think people are making too big of a deal over this.

1080p, this is a new gen now you gotta have standards so we can move forward.
While I agree with this to an extent (I did expect 1080p/60FPS to be the standard for this gen), I don't think it's as big a deal as some seem to be making it out to be. I think most people wouldn't know the difference between 1080p/900p/720p to be honest.

Really don't care. I've compared games directly on a 42 inch screen while sitting less than a couple of meters from the screen and not seen a major difference. Sure 720 is burrier but that hasn't stopped me having a ball with my 360 for the last six years.
I'll take 60fps over 1080p but I'd rather have a great game, with characters I love and a world I never want to leave, than any of that stuff.

It is 2014! 1080p at least! However, I think it can be argued that 60 fps is just as important for the quality of your gaming experience. But, again, it is 2014! I am amazed that we are still having this conversation.
Edit: I agree that graphics are not the most important part of a game. But, I think at this point in time we should expect certain standards from devs, 1080p and 60fps should be standard, IMO.
