Depends on the gameplay, i don't really care about graphics to be honest

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 .

To me there's not much of a difference.

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.

I'm with Jank and stizzal on this one. Seven years of 720p and below is quite enough. I just said in another post that 1080p was touted as a big deal when the PS3 & 360 got revealed. Nine years later some games are failing to reach that resolution.
