@Cranler: No I don't really watch a lot of movies not of my free time is taken up by playing games, and watching football. All I know is my games look great while I'm playing and if games are going to look better on PS4/X1 I don't really care about the difference between 720/900/1080 it's not like my life revolves around this stuff I maybe play like 4 hours a week, maybe!!

It takes no time to change tv settings. Also if your playing with those same effects in games then your getting a ton of input lag.

If you read this Digital Trends Article or point #9 of this CNET article, they both say the same thing - if you are looking at a large screen TV, and are sitting more than 8-10 feet away from it, you cannot tell the difference.

PCs aside (where it does matter), does 1080P matter over 720P, or is it just bragging rights?

Yes it does matter, since I never sit 8-10 away from my tv.

Higher resolution is always better.

Not at the expense of other things that add to the atmosphere.

Yes it matters. And I can tell the difference.

I'm sure you can if you sit close enough.

I can tell the difference at 9 feet. I have super powers apparently. I'm Batman, it's a me.

Batman didn't have super powers. Superman on the other hand he was the one to be :)

Now the people of Metropolis wouldn't be able to tell the difference. They confuse birds with planes.

Also, the even notion that 720p has no difference or that much difference to 1080p is hilariously laughable.

Honestly, I'd trust CNet before this obscure website.
