I don't always agree with this guy, but I'll say this: the intro music is great.

jim sterling doesn't care about resolutions as much as gameplay (see minecraft), because a) he can currently play on a pc at higher than 1080p, and b) because he's going to own all the next-gen consoles for the exclusives. he just thinks it's fun to point and laugh at sony and ms for creating a demand for something neither is pulling off at launch.

ps4: 1080p, but unstable frame rates
xo: stable frame rates, but 720p

I completely agree with him. PC gaming is where I'll worry about resolution and frame rates, and console gaming is all about fun exclusives that aren't on PC. No matter the resolution (until 4K TVs become the norm, at which point both 720p and 1080p will be quite obsolete). Also, if the KI demo at Best Buy is any indication, 720p upscaled to 1080p on the X1 looks pretty good.

He also makes an interesting point about companies pushing graphics over gameplay for years. And now they drove themselves into a corner and cant hit their targets.
