@T3H_1337_N1NJ4: game companies offer 1080p every time.. what do you think is the reason for it?
Because unfortunately a lot of people can't really tell the difference between 30 and 60fps. Most of them probably can't tell the difference between 720p and 1080p, but at least 1080p is a more powerful buzzword for marketing than 60fps.
Besides that, I think most of the devs nowadays just want the game to be "pretty" and don't really give a damn about gameplay quality.
And on a side note, to the people saying it's game dependent. Not it's not. I don't see why I should have to bear with jerky animations and camera work just so there can be a few more pixels on the screen. And @nyadc that was saying that in Shenmue's case there would be more immersion with 1080p, he is plainly wrong. 60fps is a way more important factor for immersion to me (and many others who easily tell the difference between the two).
