[QUOTE="jun_aka_pekto"]NMothing has been said either way afaik. Carmack did say he expects most console games to remain at 30fps which is good for pc gaming. 720p/30fps console standard would be best for the pc gaming community.
Is it final that the next-gen consoles will have games only at 720p? I would think some of the more "shallow" games (eg Bulletstorm-type games) will be able to run at 1080p smoothly enough (not necessarily at 60 fps).
If next-gen console games will still be at a consistent 30fps, then some genres such as racing games may lend themselves well to 1080p while others like open-world games can remain at 720p. I think we'll see a combination of both resolutions. If developers have some leeway with native resolutions this gen, I don't see why it won't be the same for next-gen.
