MS Penello getting defensive on 1080p/60FPS: ".It's not that great.."

He's feeling the heat when more multiplatforms are running better on PS4. How does he justify the fatter and more expensive console? (with extra power brick and consumes more electricity, so now you spend more on your electric bill too!)

"Look, I've had a lot of time to think about this and I believe in what I said. I believe that the differences [between the PS4 and Xbox One] is not that great,"
Then he goes on to make analogies about going to a movie theater and other fillers.

So far, game tech sources like Digital Foundry and others have confirmed most 3rd party games perform better since launch on PS4. A small chart in this interesting article:

http://kotaku.com/why-it-matters-that-ps4-games-are-higher-resolution-th-1475165066

Call of Duty: Ghosts
PS4: 1920x1080 (1080p) | Xbox One: 1280x720 (720p)

Battlefield 4
PS4: 1600x900 (900p) | Xbox One: 720p

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag (Via The Verge)
PS4: 1080p | Xbox One: 900p

Need for Speed: Rivals
PS4: 1080p | Xbox One: 1080p

Then, did you AC4 owners get that patch from Ubisoft? that bumps the res to 1080? Did the Xbone version get this update too?

Yea I wouldn't say it's that big a deal. Would certainly steer me away from a console if I was only looking into getting one or the other. Seeing how ill mostly play multiplats that's the most important part to me. Having the best looking game means nothing if every single multiplat I play looks better somewhere else. Also I have to pay $100 more? Nope. Nothing more annoying than spending more money on an inferior product. Why would I do that?

To be fair to the guy it is his job and it must be incredibly difficult right now.

Hey, if they wanna pay $100 more for the inferior system, and get second-rate multiplat games, be my guest. "A fool and its money are soon parted" - end of story.

Read this user comment from the kotaku article. He explains why.

"It makes a huge difference. But the difference is made lesser or greater depending on the size of your TV and how far you sit from it. I sit just under 5 feet from a 50 inch and the difference is alarmingly, "hard-to-go-back-to-PS3-and-720p" gigantic (an experience that started nearly 2 years ago when I began gaming on my PC at 1080p).

If I were 9 feet from a 40"? It would probably be unnoticeable. On the other hand, the noticeable crushing of blacks and artificial sharpening the One does to "compensate" for its 1080p problems would be noticeable from 20 feet away on a 30". And that makes this an issue for every gamer who cares about nice graphics (which I would assume is any gamer buying a next-gen console at launch)."

And you do want to get the most out of what you pay for, after all. And graphics performance if one of those areas. This is "Next Gen" after all.
