Or could be it really just doesn't matter as much as cows make it out to.

If yous were so bothered about resolution and graphics, why the hell did you even support the PS3?

Don't act like the PS3 was inferior to the 360, it was harder to develop for, Yes, but inferior? no.

Lems:

360 with slightly better resolution than PS3 multiplat: "I will buy the superior version on Xbox"

PS4 with a significantly better resolution than XBO: "It's not that different, I'll still get it on Xbox"

Did you expect something different from them?

Cows:

360 with significantly better multiplats and game performance than PS3 multiplats: "It's not that different, I'll still get it on PS3"

PS4 with a slightly better resolution than XBO: "It's the biggest graphical gap in the history of gaming!!!!"

@Sweenix: dont matter. The 360 had most better multiplats, BUT. Why in hell do you even support consoles if you cows sooo desperately care so much about graphics. Get a pc....

Konami and Sony made reviewers of advanced copies sign legal contracts excluding grounds to rate the game down on and made manditory review coaching sections, and it worked getting that piece of shit game a 10/10... no MS bribing will top that.

And yet, PS3 exclusives looked much better then those multiplats... and graphics shouldn't be the main reason to be a console, but spending $500 on an underpowered console, that runs call of duty at the same resolution as the 360, is just a complete rip off.

I think, the xbone is pretty good, and the launch line up is slightly better then the PS4, although the announced games are worse, but there is no way in hell, that console is worth $500.

I'm primarily a PC gamer, and I'll be the first to tell you that the jump from 720p to 1080p is huge. 720p is only 921,600 pixels. 1080p is 2,073,600 pixels. That's 125% more detail from a console that is also $100 cheaper...

It's because they are using the older beta devkits and some of these games will be patched on day one. lol!!

Native 720p vs native 1080p is a phenomenal difference. You'd literally have to be be blind to not see it.

Lemmings fail to realize that the PS4 running games at 1080P while XB1 runs them at 720p is an indication of a massive leap in power in favor of PS4. All PC gamers know 720p is a significantly "easier to run" resolution than 1080P. PS4 devs can pump out 720p games that would make XB1's 720p games look like poopie with all that extra power.

I will say this - I do find the media's reaction to all of this a bit perplexing. They spent a generation by and large talking down Sony and Nintendo's console for its weaker graphics (to varying degrees, obviously).

Now, we're at pre-launch, with games being proven to be factually better looking on one console, with a pretty large indicator in performance delta between the two, and they are downplaying it or saying it doesn't matter. Not only that, its one of the few times Sony made claims about hardware that it backed up and then some.

And the thing that should REALLY be obvious is how quickly the media would drag Sony's new console through the mud if the roles were reversed and the XBone was the weaker console. Doubly so if Sony's console was more expensive. But w/e, hypocrisy is easy enough to point out.

What do you expect from lemmings? They're not real gamers. real gamers would get the superior version on a game machine and not a cabal box.

Lemmings are using 720p HDTV to game. So it really doesnt matter to them.

Unsurprising developments. A lot of dying print magazines will be getting cheques soon to give the Xbone good reviews, GQ is the first.

But it wasn't just resolution, when multiplats had problems on the PS3, they also had frame rate issues and screen tearing. Otherwise I never thought that resolution was a good enough reason to pick one over the other.

I think it's more likely that members of the gaming media can be fanboys/girls too. There is certainly a noticeable difference though, especially now that next gen games will be even more detailed. I expected some sub 1080p resolutions from the consoles this gen but 720p still is pretty shocking.

I suspect that, like many people here, these sources have access to powerful gaming PCs, so both PS4 and Xbox One offer inferior graphics - that's just a given. From that perspective, it's not such a big deal, since you will be playing multiplatform titles on PC anyway. I know personally I am going to use the new consoles primarily for exclusives. The only reason I would get a multiplat on a console is if I had friends on a particular console... unfortunately, I'm the only person I know buying either next gen console at launch.

Yes the gamestop managers are receiving free games AND systems from both Microsoft and Sony.
