Summary:

In June, he stated that 1080p/60FPS should be standard for all next gen consoles (video in the link)

Fast forward to this week, after Xbone 720p-Gate, he stated that resolution doesn't matter

That's simply inconsistency. Not quite as bad.

yeah that's pretty much hypocrisy. Cows and lems are well acquainted with it.

He's a guy with a youtube channel. Don't give a shit.

he's a typical talking head baloney artist that will say anything that the teleprompter tells him to.

next week he'll be saying, "i'm ron burgundy?"

such a phoney.

#13 Edited by TheRealBigRich (734 posts) -

he is probably the most unbiased journalist I know but I guess people see it the way they want. The fact is he is right these systems should be both 1080p/60fps for all the games but even the PS4 games aren't all 1080p/60fps(most but not all) and in the end he is right everybody is missing that point.

#14 Posted by W1NGMAN- (9960 posts) -

@Chutebox: Eh he's much more than that ... but his comments weren't all that consistent, fanboyism however? Not even close.

#15 Posted by silversix_ (14786 posts) -

His face looks like an MS fanboy and those are visible from 2km away.

Adam Sesspool is a huge M$ fanboy

#18 Edited by -Unreal- (24544 posts) -

Adam is amazing becuz he uses these big words lots in his reviews and treats us like grown ups that can understand all them big words and he really is good with vocabluray to give better review.

#19 Posted by BPoole96 (22802 posts) -

MS moneyhatting all these fools to downplay the significance of 1080p

#20 Posted by FragTycoon (6430 posts) -

Just because a guy has a bachelor's in English doesn't make his opinion any more or less relevant.

Adam is a tech drama queen.

You can be pro towards a console without being a fanboy, but the fact that he went back on his words, to defend the xbox, proves he is.

'he stated 1080p 60fps should be the standard for next gen gaming, now he took those words back.

#27 Posted by Multipass35 (295 posts) -

There is a lot of butthurt here. Just because he and many others believe The One is the better console.

1080 and 60fps isn't the standard on ps4 either.

60fps isn't the standard for the ps4, but 1080p is.

In fact, battlefield 4 is the only game to run sub 1080p on the ps4, while the xbox one has multiple games running below 1080p

so how is he an xbox fanboy when both console fail to meet his criteria for next gen gaming?

Exactly, he said it should be but never mentioned it being a deal breaker or anything.

Alright guy, you are looking at what you want to see in that terrible article from the OP.

Adam states that 1080p and 60fps should be standard from the next-gen consoles, but that shouldn't be the only thing they bring to the table. And states that again in the more recent video - how what is more important is what is more subtle not what is in your face ie artificial intelligence.
More to the point, the entirety of the new video is him looking at how - even though it was pushed hard dating back to the days of the PS3 it wasn't fully realized on any large scale.

Because the PS4 is much more capable of running games at 1080p - 60FPS, then the xbox one.

Launch games are not an indication of a consoles strength.

No, He was pretty much saying resolution doesn't matter.

There is a reason why that video has so many dislikes, and half of gaf has turned on him.

First he freaks out about the ps4 being rushed, even though it isn't, then he comes out saying resolution doesn't matter, as long as you add all these other bullshit features, it's so obvious he is in denial.

He should quit before he makes an even bigger fool out of him self, because he is way past his prime.

Should I state that his "Sessler's ....Something" is just his continuation of his "Sessler's Soapbox" which was an opinion presented in a public forum?

I admit I didn't watch the 30 minute video of him at SGC to find his exact quote (mainly because its 30 minutes long) I just took what CB took from it - "but that shouldn't be the only thing they bring to the table." which is exactly what he states in his most recent video but more in a manner where the resolutions where forced upon when the big studios forced it upon themselves.

Look, let's just end it here

He first stated that resolution is everything, now he is saying, it doesn't have to be everything, if you include these other things.

It just comes off as desperate, why would he even make the first statement in the first place, he should have chosen his words more wisely, that's why many people dislike him now.

sounds like you and all the other fanboys are just butthurt because he's not on the X1 hate train.

He stated, according to the CB "quote":

1080p and 60fps should be standard from the next-gen consoles, but that shouldn't be the only thing they bring to the table.

The defined [above] resolution standard should apply as well as these other factors (such as AI) is not the same as saying "resolution is everything" as you so eloquently stated.
Now unless CB misquoted that (the one italicized above) statement from his speech at the SGC convention then Adam Sessler did not state that resolution is the only important aspect.

Do you ever see me hating on the xbox one? No. And this has nothing to do with the xbox one hate train, this is about him saying resolution doesn't matter, Even though he stated months earlier, that it did matter.

In short case, he lied and backtracked, and people were obviously going to be upset with that.

Cows called Adam Sessler Xbox fanboy when he gave Killzone 2 a 5 out of 5 on X-Play

I really do think cows are one of the most delusional fanbases on the planet.

but he didn't state the other reasons where related to visuals, for all we know, it could have been gameplay related, or features, or multimedia.

Adan Sessler is like Doirto Pope, entrenched in publishers and companies. A back patter. I don't understand why you fellows try to act like he's your cool uncle down with the kids. He's a business man, in a business.

#47 Posted by Blabadon (26582 posts) -

1) Sweenix is much dumber than I thought

2) These people edit and upload their own videos. They're not going to include blatant examples of hypocrisy, which as a word is used terribly here

3) He absolutely loves The Last of Us, Shadow of the Colossus, etc.

4) There is no "Xbone 720-gate"

5) He was one of the relatively few people to be invited by Sony to a recent PS4 game coverage event

#48 Edited by rjdofu (9170 posts) -

He's a fanboy? That's new to me. I thought he praised the PS4 plenty of times in the past few months?

All he's doing right now is stating his opinion and defending both console. I disagree though.

#49 Posted by John_Matherson (2031 posts) -

@-Damien-: Sessler isn't a fanboy. He was probably the only unbiased person in the entire G4 staff back in those days. Morgan Webb was also tolerable.

This is so out of hand and overblown it borders on lunacy.

Ironically, in a little XBL survey I did with my 100 friends, only 5 replies indicated that they gave a damn about CoD being at 720P. Granted, my survey sample may be a wee bit tainted (all 360 owners), but still - the biggest "resolution gate" champions are... COWS.
