The human eye is incapable of reliably distinguishing any detail finer than 720p

no if you're sitting 10 feet away you should be viewing like an 80" display.

It is hilariously dumb that we are even having this discussion.

Skermac - Smart enough to troll most on here yet not bright enough to hold a decent conversation.

What does that tell you about the collective IQ of GameFAQS?

Tip: It's low and I'm sad that I am here to tip the scale up for you.

The resolution of our eyes is 12 vertical lines per arc angle (one line per arcminute for 20/20 acuity) times 2. Now 28 degrees x 12 lines x 2 = 672.


This right here proves the article is full of ****. There are 60 arcminutes per degree. Which means there would be 60 vertical lines per degree. Assuming the "one line per arcminute" and their formula are actually true, the corrected numbers would be as follows:
28 degrees x 60 lines x 2 = 3360 vertical lines

Therefore, assuming the only error made in the article was the one I pointed out, we would be able to distinguish up to 3360p, which would be slightly above WHXGA.

They call me Hadouken because I'm down right fierce.

lmao, the worst part of the PS4/XB1 using lame parts / devs that value visuals over resolution is that it is leading to another gen of lots of resolution reassurance topics.

Bump for more hilarious disinformation.

The denial of xbox's inferiority to the PS4 is getting more and more creative.

The only thing you wrote that is accurate is that you are sad. The only scale you're tipping is the one with crack rocks on it that you must be smoking. The only thing I have left to say is people who need to 'talk themselves up' on the internet are the ones compensating for their pathetic real life and are trying to convince themselves.

If this topic is serious wow... totally false.

Yes 1080 p is noticeable.

Yes 60 fps is noticeable.

Yes they are both a big deal, framerate moreso because it actually affects the responsiveness and quality of controller input. (In addition to looking better as well)
