This hasn't been mentioned yet (or at least much), but MS is demanding 2x anti-aliasing on all XBO games:

Can you highlight that point for me? I don't see it in the spec sheet there. Not that I doubt it, 2x AA isn't a lofty standard or anything, I just can't find it in the link.

It's listed right under the first quote under the section: I. GPU Tradeoffs, 720p vs. 1080p Resolution Gaming Explained

Yes it is. I only posted based on the first quote, but I'm going through it now and it is more interesting. It explains MS deign decisions on the XBO.

XBO GPU isn't as powerful as the PS4's, but is actually faster. It states MS made the trade off because of all the other things the XBO will be running while you play games like skype and ESPN, etc.

They also believe that you can get better graphics by the quality of pixels with AA and up-scaling rather than the sheer number of them.

As long as games look good and I can watch TV via snap, I'm good.

Ohh it will. 2xAA compared to zero AA is very noticeable

And this should push the resolution even lower. Great.

And anyone who believes any PR spin that this machine can do anything better than the PS4 is unbelievably gullible.

So now AA matters?
