Is this a Tea Party "liberal bias" awesomeness?

I will try and see it from your point of view, but I doubt we'll be able to fit both our heads up there.

Media report based on how much revenue the news will generate

720p is superior in every way possible.

Yeah, guess we know which company has more advertising money to spend to fund those sites.

So this guy confirms upscaling is bad. Its blurs the picture. (Durrrrr)

So how does BF4 running at 900p on the PS4 and being upscaled to 1080p compare to the XB1 being straight 720p? This is what confuses me. Which is going to look better on my 50 inch LED? Is the upscaling going to ruin any advantage had? Honest question.

Well the article isn't helping itself with those two pictures... It makes the difference look pretty mediocre on my 55" TV.

Sony uses a software scaler and so upscaling from 900p to 1080p on the PS4 results in blurring. The XB1 uses a dedicated hardware scaler, so upscaling from 720p to 1080p on the XB1 results in arguably less blurring than on the PS4. However, you still get more jaggies, less detail on small objects, and more artifacts due to aggressive edge enhancement.

Blurring isn't that much of an issues when the game is in motion. Developers often add motion blur to make movement seem smoother and to hide jaggies. It's only when you freeze frame that the blur stands out.

Crimson dragon is 1080p. That means it looks as good as KZ then right?!
