You understand why MS thought resolution didnt matter?

Also the GC had a huge disadvantage against the PS2 in storage disk space. They had to heavily compress the audio in GC games to make them fit on mini disks, and the audio as well as some of the FMVs were compressed poorly, and they were lower quality. For this simple reason, they were able to do a whole lot more on the PS2 because they had a whole lot more storage space to work with. The PS4 also doubled as a DVD movie player, and when it was released, a decent DVD player would run you over $100.


Your wrong a decent DVD player back in then was over 300 actually. a "cheap" one was around 200+.


Maybe he meant "$100 more." And "You're wrong" seems like a strong response to "your point is right but your number isn't big enough."


just correcting the error. It was not till 2004-2005 were black friday 100 dollar blueray players were a thing.


I love it when people over-aggressively correct an error and then they themselves make an error.

I'm talking about "DVD" not bluray player. Just correcting an error. You're probably too young to remember anything older than bluray.

Were you in diapers back then? The gamecube was 200 bucks and killed the ps2 in specs. I still got my recipt for my launch PS2 and it was 324 with tax. that means the underpowered ps2 cost 100 more than the gamecube. anything else to say thats wrong?


The gamecube also sold like complete ass, because hardcore gamers didn't care about it.

Microsoft isn't in a strong enough position to get away with selling a weaker console for $100 more, because the Xbone is losing the console race big time against the PS4. The PS4 is set to nearly double the install base of the Xbone globally here in a month or 2. Xbone is going to get wrecked in sales once the PS4 releases in Japan on the 22nd.

Where you are in error is by comparing the Xbone to the PS2, when them marking the Xbone $100 higher, would have made about as much sense as Nintendo marking the Gamecube $100 higher when there was a way lower demand for it than for competing systems.


LOL, this guy literally pulls information out of his ass

You are an idiot. Bluray was not really starting momentum until 2006 and were still 500+ plus machines most of 2006. you had to been born in the late 90 kid.

So you're alright with paying $500 to play a console that has the same resolution as last gen?

And Titanfall runs natively in 792p, LOL.


this is what bothers me about the fanboys here. not that they keep pushing the fact the ps4 is more powerful. I know it's more powerful and cost less that's been beat to death. I don't care it's not gonna take away my enjoyment of my xbox one. it's this kinda crap where they seem to think I owe them an explanation as to why I like the xbox one. I honestly wanted to buy a ps4 also but if this is what I have to become to be part of the playstation community. I think i'll pass. Gaming is about more than just system specs. They could have slapped any resolution or framerate on these boxes and most of us here(me included) wouldn't know any better. Sure you can tell one looks better than the other but you don't know the actual framerate/resolution other than what you are told. You guys are good at throwing numbers around. if you wanna sell me on a ps4 show me the games.

Resolution only matters when your games suck. If a game is good everything else comes second.
Take Knack for instance. Not even kids can stand that 1080p of boredom. So what's left? "hey it's 1080p!"
- Okay...and?

Some of the fanboys here would probably play with a turd if it ran in 1080p 60fps..lol

I love how it matters 720p vs 1080p 30fps/ 60fps. All i care about is a good game, plays well and I enjoy it, now if its a crap game whats gonna matter if it was 1080p/60fps and which system??
