Stop trying to justify your overpriced console with lies.

I wear glasses, and my eyesight is awful, and even I can easily identify the difference between 720p and 1080p, as can many other people on this website.

I dont need or want 1080p. 720p looks fantastic and 30 fps is fine by me. Xbox 360 is best games console ever made.

You don't need a study to tell me that. Sony fanboys confirmed they can't tell the difference when they insist 1080p matters so much yet fail to tell that KZ and BF4 aren't 1080p on ps4.

Lets revise this thread. If you have smaller than a 50 inch tv you cant tell the difference. So say the electronic experts. Unless you guys have electronics degrees I will go with the professionals.

Generally speaking, if you sit more than 10 feet away from your TV, and your display isnít bigger than 50 inches diagonally, you wonít be able to tell the difference between 720 and 1080.

Anything to bash sony right? That's some insecurity.

Forget 1080p and 4k, heres proof.

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 means we really can't see a display component (pixel) smaller than 1/672 x image width. Our minimum resolvable element size is about 0.065", or about twice the size of the pixels of the WXGA image! Put bluntly, from 8 feet away while watching a 50 inch plasma TV, the human eye is generally incapable of reliably distinguishing any detail finer than that shown on a true 720p display!

People do have vision better than 20/20.

I can tell the difference between 720p and 1080p just like a bunch of other people. Maybe you guys need contacts.
