So why exactly did we wait 7 years for a brand new console just to..

Get games only capable of the exact same 720p resolutions as its predecessor? I bought a brand new 1080p LED 60" just for X1 and now I'm stuck with a TV that can't even utilize its full potential

Wii U Donkey Kong is 1080p. Ryse is 900p. Only a complete idiot would say Donkey Kong looks better than Ryse. Please stop with this whole "resolution is the only thing that matters to graphical fidelity" nonsense.

But that's not the point.. Why, in 2013/2014, SEVEN years later are we not seeing games in 1080p, which was a standard when last-gen consoles launched..

Arguably the best looking game of last gen, Crysis 3, isn't even native 720p.

I was well aware, I just didn't care because that was the first generation of HD gaming.

You should've gotten a PS4, TC. Hope this helps.

Why don't you just play on PC then? Never heard complains about the resolution there. Pretty stupid to buy a console just for that

Also: You say that you know they didn't run native 720p but in the opening post you stated that the current gen runs the same resolution of last gen.
So obviously you were lying and trolling.
Try harder next time and try to survive at least the first page.
