The very simple answer is to play new games. duhh.
At some point in the future the 360 and ps3 will be discontinued ya know.

Please dont you are embarrassing yourself completely.
Please do a google search on "native resolution" and move on to "upscaling from there.

Thank you.

To make better looking and/or more technically impressive games than what's possible on last-gen consoles.

Are people really this daft? resolution is not an indicator of what good graphics will be.

Depending on the devs the game can look bloody fantastic even at 720p on the Xbox One... also a game running at that res will still look way better then the same title on the Xbox 360.

I would rather a game dripping in detail and effects running at 60FPS (if possible) again this depends on the devs to pull that off.

So stop thinking that "must be 1080p or it's not next gen" graphics are not cut and dry like that. good example is Call of Duty: Ghosts vs Crysis 3 on the Xbox 360, Crysis 3 looks WAY better and they both run around the same res (thought people may like the 60fps more on Ghosts)

I hope this enlightened some peope.


while i agree with some things in your post, 1080p have been out since 2005. It's 2014, and 1080p on a console should have been the thing of the norm by now.


Ok a pc built in 2005, a gaming PC... can you run games that were released recently? one that was built for $499? even a high end PC will start to not be able to run games at 1080p at a stable frame rate on PC, so that argument does not work.


360 was quite a bit more powerful on release than the X1 and PS4. I also don't think you can get options that go as low as the 360 (in Crysis 3 for example).
